Absconding JD(U) MLC Manorma Devi, whose son Rocky Yadav was arrested in connection with killing of a Gaya youth in an incident of road rage, surrendered in a court on Tuesday and was remanded into 14 days of judicial custody.
As the morning court started for the day, Manorma Devi surrendered in the court of Additional Chief Judicial MagistrateIV Som Sagar.
The court remanded her to 14 days of judicial custody. The surrender of the ruling party legislator came a week after she went into hiding after issuance of arrest warrant against her in the case of recovery of liquor bottles from her house, during the search for her son Rocky.
The MLC appeared in court even as police was on the lookout for her after an arrest warrant was issued. Asked if police were present in the court premises to arrest her before she could surrender, Senior Superintendent of Police, Gaya, Garima Mallik said the suspended legislator surrendered due to intense police pressure.
With the surrender of the MLC, the entire family of Manorma Devi, including her husband and son, are now in jail in the case of murder of class XII student Sachdeva, who was shot dead allegedly by Rocky Yadav after their car overtook his SUV.
