PATNA: The Supreme Court today cancelled the bail granted by Patna High Court to Rocky Yadav who is accused of shooting dead a teenager in a case of road rage and ordered to send him back to jail immediately.

Yadav, son of suspended ruling JD-U lawmaker Manorama Devi, had come out of jail barely a week back after the bail was granted by the High Court on October 20.

The Bihar government had moved the apex court soon after he came out of jail. In its petition, the government sought immediate cancellation of his bail, apprehending intimidation/coercion of witnesses by the accused persons.

“The high court ignored factors like “nature and gravity” of the offence, manner of its commissioning, severity of the punishment he would be given if convicted, “character, position/status of his family”, threats, intimidation and coercion of the prosecution witnesses and the family of the victims, and the capacity of the offender to tamper with evidence,” the government’s petition reportedly said.

Yadav is accused of shooting dead teenager Aditya Sachdeva, son of a businessman, merely after his car overtook the car of the accused in Gaya district in May this year.
