"This is a very bad day for Bihar, I appeal to the government to take some measures to save Bihar from the jungle raj," Shyam Sundar, father of Aditya Sachdeva, told ANI. Both the parents hit out against the verdict. "We have all the proofs with us but still justice is denied, money & power has again silenced the truth," ANI quoted Sundar on Twitter.

Rocky Yadav, son of suspended Janata Dal-United MLC Manorma Devi and Bindi Yadav, a politician with a criminal past, is accused of shooting Aditya Sachdeva on 7 May following an altercation over overtaking his vehcile. Manorma and Bindi were accused of sheltering him, and recently enlarged on bail as well. Rocky had absconded after the murder, allegedly with the help of his parents.

According to IANS, Rocky had confessed killing Sachdeva to the police, and was lodged in the Gaya Central Jail along with his father Bindi Yadav, Bindi Yadav's bodyguard Rajesh Kumar and a cousin, Teni Yadav. All of them are accused in the murder case. Following the public outcry over Aditya Sachdeva's murder, the ruling JD-U had suspended Manorama's membership.

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar had assured the parents of the victim that justice will be done in the case, when he had visited their house in Gaya town in June.

"We need answers, high court gave decision in his (Rocky Yadav) favour without even opening the case. Bohot ghalat hua hai, humare bachhe ke saath insaaf hona chahiye. Hume sarkar se ummeed thi (This is very bad thing happened to our child. Our child should get justice. We had hopes from the government)," Sachdeva's mother told ANI.

During the hearing, Rocky's lawyer YV Giri argued that there is no direct evidence of his client's involvement in the incident, PTI reported on Wednesday. Opposing the bail plea, government advocate Dilip Kumar Sinha told the court that Rocky Yadav was the main accused in the case.

After hearing arguments the court had granted bail to Rocky Yadav.
