Patna: The Bihar police on Tuesday said that Rakesh Ranjan Yadav alias Rocky Yadav, the son of the ruling JD(U) MLC Manorama Devi, who allegedly shot dead a 20-year-old youth for overtaking his vehicle, will be subjected to a speedy trial.

"SSP Gaya has been directed to ensure a speedy trial in the case. The investigation is still on and it will be completed within three weeks and a chargesheet will be filed within a month," the Additional Director General of Police (Headquarters) Sunil Kumar told reporters here.

Aditya Sachdeva was allegedly shot dead by Rocky Yadav for overtaking his vehicle near the police lines in Gaya district on Saturday night.

When pointed out that Yadav denied opening fire, the ADGP said, "No accused confesses that he has committed crime. Let him say whatever he is saying. He will get opportunity during trial."

"So far as police are concerned, we have enough evidence to prove his guilt in the case. We have circumstantial evidence, scientific evidence, weapon and vehicle used in the crime, statements of witnesses under 164 of CrPC," he said, hours after the Gaya police nabbed the accused.

Stating that two accused persons — Rocky's father Bindi Yadav and bodyguard Rajesh Kumar — have already been arrested, Kumar said that efforts are on to nab another accomplice Tany Yadav, who was present in the SUV and is absconding.

A forensic science laboratory team has been sent to Gaya from Patna to collect scientific evidence such as fingerprints and ballistic evidence which would be helpful in proving the case, he said.
