Rakesh Ranjan alias Rocky Yadav, who allegedly shot dead a Class XII student for overtaking his SUV in Bihar, will have to go back to jail with the Supreme Court Friday staying a Patna High Court order granting him bail. A bench headed by Justice S A Bobde sought response from Rocky, son of a suspended JD(U) MLC, on a plea of Bihar government challenging the bail granted to him on October 19. Senior advocate Rajiv Dutta, appearing for Bihar government, said this was an open-and-shut case and the youth was highly intoxicated. Hence, his bail should be immediately cancelled or the order of the Patna High Court stayed.

The bench said that “charge sheet has already been filed in the case and this may go against you”. The court said it was issuing notice to the respondent (Rocky) and posted the hearing after Diwali.

Rocky, son of suspended JD(U) MLC Manorama Devi and alleged history sheeter Bindi Yadav, is accused of shooting and killing Aditya Sachdeva, a Class XII student who was driving his Maruti car, for overtaking his SUV on May 7 this year near Gaya.

Police had filed a charge sheet in a Gaya court against Rocky and another accused in connection with the murder. They had 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 in three weeks and charge sheet filed within a month of the incident. Rocky is facing two cases – one of murder of Aditya and another under Excise Act for recovery of liquor bottles from the house of his mother. He was arrested from his father’s mixer plant in Gaya on May 10.

His name was included along with his father Bindi Yadav in the case of recovery of liquor bottles which were found when police raided his mother’s house looking for Rocky.

      How the HC granted bail to such a criminal. Even from within the jail he is sure to coerce witnesses. Then what will be the state once he is out!!!

            It is being reported that the jailed--bailed jail bird has flown.I fail to understand what more the judiciary which is perceived to favor criminals/convicts with its liberal grant of dates, bails, paroles, furlough,good-conduct amnesty etc will do even if the courts are teeming with judges for whose fast and full appointment they are confronting the central;br/gt;Is it not a total waste of time for courts and judges having taken up this case with urgency instead of concentrating on people incarcerated for long periods without F I R or trial?

                How Laloo got bail for life ? The solution is, if, a judge gives bail to a criminal, that judge should go to jail on behalf of the criminal.
