Patna: After the Patna High Court on Wednesday granted bail to Rocky Yadav, son of suspended JD (U) MLC Manorama Devi accused of killing teenager Aditya Sachdeva on Gaya road in May, the mother of the deceased on Friday said that they were thinking of approaching the Supreme Court in the case.
According to reports, Aditya’s Mother on Friday said, “There was no trial even after all the evidences that were in place, it is painful. We are thinking of approaching the SC, we should get a good lawyer from the Bihar government to fight there.”
Shyam Sundar, the bereaved father of the victim had earlier lamented that justice was denied to his son. “We have all the proofs with us but still justice was denied. Money and power has again silenced the truth,” he had said.
However, the Nitish Kumar-led Bihar government on Thursday had decided to challenge the bail granted to Rocky Yadav, who allegedly shot dead Aditya Sachdeva in a road rage incident.
“The state government decided to appeal in the apex court the Patna High Court’s granting bail to Rocky Yadav,” Additional Advocate General Lalit Kishore said.
A ruling Janata Dal-United (JD-U) leader close to Nitish Kumar said the decision was taken in the wake of protests by the opposition over Rocky Yadav’s release.
