Rocky Yadav, the main accused in the Bihar road rage incident - which claimed the life of teenager Aditya Sachdeva in May this year - surrendered before the Gaya district court on 29 October.

This comes a day after the Supreme Corurt on 28 October stayed the Patna High Court's order that granted bail to Rakesh Ranjan Yadav, alias, Rocky, for the murder of Aditya Sachdeva.

Rocky - the son of suspended JDU leader Manorama Devi - was granted bail by the Patna High Court earlier on 19 October. The police arrested Rocky from his father Bindi Yadav's mixer plant in Gaya on 10 May.

Rocky's parents, accused of sheltering him while he was on the run after the murder, were recently granted bail. The police filed a chargesheet in a Gaya court against Rocky and another accused in the case.

They also filed chargesheets against Rocky's cousin Teni Yadav, his father Bindi Yadav and his MLC mother's bodyguard Rajesh Kumar.

The state government had put the case on speedy trial. The investigation was completed within three weeks and the chargesheet was filed within a month of the incident.
