Rocky Yadav, the son of a ruling party legislator Manorama Devi, who is accused in killing of a teenager in Bihar's Gaya town, was arrested early on Tuesday, police said.
Gaya senior superintendent of police Garima Malik confirmed the arrest to the media. "He has been arrested, we will let you know more details soon."
The 30-year-old, who was absconding after the incident, was arrested from Bodh Gaya, about 15 km from Gaya.
Yadav is the son of legislative council member Manorama Devi of the ruling Janata Dal (United). Yadav allegedly shot dead Aditya Sachdeva, a teenager on Saturday night for overtaking his car on the Bodh Gaya-Gaya road.
The police had earlier on Monday raided the house of Devi and had questioned her to find the whereabouts of her son.
The Special Investigation Team (SIT) headed by Gaya City Superintendent of Police Awkash Kumar had gone to Manorama Devi's house and after a three-hour long search, questioned her about the whereabouts of his son Rocky Yadav, absconding since the incident in Gaya.
Inspector General of Police (Patna Zone) NH Khan, had instructed the SIT to go with a detailed questionnaire to the MLC's house to seek relevant details.
Earlier, Devi had said that the police were conducting a probe and truth would come out. She had said if the court seeks presence of her son, he would go there.
Asked where her son was, Devi had said she does not know.
Meanwhile, Deputy Inspector General of Police (Magadh Range) Suarabh Kumar had said the Gaya Police were finding out from where Rocky got license of his pistol.
The police would also approach External Affairs Ministry to prevent Rocky from leaving the country, he had said.
Rocky's father, RJD leader Bindi Yadav, had been arrested and was sent to 14 days in judicial custody today by a Gaya court.
