Suspended JD(U) MLC Manorama Devi surrenders in Bihar court; claims BJP trapped her

Gaya: Bihar MLC Manorama Devi, mother of Rocky Yadav (who allegedly shot dead Class XII teenager Aditya Sachdeva), finally surrendered before a Gaya court on Tuesday, a week after she went into hiding after the state government issued an arrest warrant against her.

The government had issued the arrest warrant against her for storing liquor bottles in her house, thus defying the statewide liquor ban imposed by Nitish Kumar.

“I respect the court and the government but I did not have any liquor bottles. I have been trapped,” Manorama Devi said after her surrender. “I am being falsely implicated due to political conspiracy, the BJP is doing that,” ANI further quoted her as saying. Her lawyer also claimed that Manorama Devi had been ill until now.
According to ANI, the suspended JD(U) MLC has been sent to judicial custody for 14 days.
