The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) called for a shutdown in Bihar's Gaya on 9 May to protest the alleged killing of 19-year-old Aditya Sachdeva by Rocky Yadav, the son of Janata Dal (United) legislative council member Manorama Devi.
The victim, Aditya, who had recently appeared for his Class 12 examinations, was shot dead on the night of 7 May.
According to reports, Aditya - who was driving a Swift car - tried to overtake a Range Rover that Rocky was travelling in. Rocky was accompanied by a security guard who said that the bullet that hit Aditya was fired from the personal revolver of the politician's son.
A whole 36 hours after the incident, the police is yet to arrest Rocky, who is still on the run.
The police have arrested the security guard and Devi's husband Bindeshwari Prasad Yadav alias Bindi Yadav, for helping him escape.
