Senior advocate Y V Giri, who appeared for Manorama Devi, said that she is a lady and a law abiding person who has surrendered before the court in the case.

The liquor bottles were recovered from Manorama Devi's house and not from her physical possession, he submitted while
pleading for grant of bail. It may be noted that Gaya district court had on 27 May rejected her bail plea while Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate (ACJM) court had rejected her bail petition on 19 May in the bottle recovery case.

She was booked under the Excise Act after liquor bottles were recovered from her residence at A P Colony of the town during the police raid following which she went into hiding for a couple of days before surrendering on 17 May.

The MLC's son Rocky Yadav had allegedly shot dead a Std XII student Aditya Sachdeva for overtaking his car. The JDU had suspended Manorama Devi for harbouring her son, while the Gaya Police arrested her husband Bindeshwari Prasad Yadav alias Bindi Yadav and her body guard.
