Sachdeva murder: Patna HC defers bail plea of Bihar MLC Manorma Devi

Sachdeva murderPatna: The Patna High Court on Thursday deferred the hearing of the bail plea of suspended JD-U legislator Manorama Devi, mother of Rocky Yadav who is accused of killing Aditya Sachdeva on May 7 in Gaya town, to June 6.

Manorama Devi had surrendered last month in the Gaya court after an arrest warrant was issued against her for keeping liquor in her home in violation of the prohibition law of the state and for harbouring her fugitive son who has since been arrested.

The court had remanded her in 14-day judicial custody and she is currently lodged in the Gaya Central Jail.

Manorma has filed a bail plea in the high court on Tuesday after her bail petition was rejected twice by the Gaya district civil court in May.
