Bihar Road Rage Case: Chargesheet not weak, bail shouldn't have been granted

New Delhi [India], Oct. 21 (ANI): Lauding the move of the Bihar government to challenge the Patna High Court's order to grant bail to Rocky Yadav, Neelam Katara, the mother of Nitish Katara, on Friday said the chargesheet was not weak enough to grant bail to Yadav for six months.

It may be recalled that Neelam Katara has been battling hard for years for punishment for her son Nitish's killers.

A day after Patna High Court granted bail to Rakesh Ranjan Yadav alias Rocky Yadav in Gaya road rage case, Bihar government decided to challenge the order in the Supreme Court.

Principal Additional Advocate General Lalit Kishore had mentioned that the state government is going to file an appeal in the Supreme Court challenging the bail granted to Rocky Yadav by the Patna High Court. The appeal is expected to be filed by next Monday.

"There is time to challenge and it is important that the right appeal is being made and I don't think there has been a delay in the challenge, but I did not see the charge sheet why he was given bail so early...Was the charge sheet not strong enough?" Kitara asked.

"I do not think this should be such a weak case that he gets bail in six months," she told ANI.

She further added that the presence of a powerful politician on the other side with a criminal antecedence influences the work of the police too.

"When Rocky Yadav will roam the streets tomorrow, not only people will feel unsafe, the witnesses will weaken their stance and the morale of the potential criminals will be boosted. I hope protection has been provided to the family, because the Delhi government has the Wintess Protection Act."

Recalling the sensational Jessica Lal murder case, she also mentioned that Vikas Yadav was involved in Jessica Lal murder just when he was out on bail, and therefore, the behavior of the accused under the influence of power cannot be predicted.

Rocky, son of suspended JD (U) MLC Manorama Devi and Bindi Yadav is accused of shooting dead Class XII student Aditya Sachdeva for overtaking his car on May 7.

Police had earlier filed a charge sheet in a Gaya court against Rocky and another accused in connection with the murder case. They have also filed charge sheet against Rocky's cousin Teni Yadav, his father Bindi Yadav and his MLC mother's bodyguard Rajesh Kumar in the murder case.

The state government had put the case on speedy trial and investigation was completed within three weeks and charge sheet filed within a month of the incident. (ANI)
