Janata Dal United MLC Manorama Devi's son allegedly shot dead a youth in Bihar's Gaya district on Saturday night in a case of road rage.

The police have arrested Devi's husband Bindeshwari Prasad Yadav alias Bindi Yadav and her security guard Rajesh Kumar in connection with the murder.

The DIG, Magadh Range, Saurabh Kumar said the incident took place on Saturday night when the JDU MLC's son Rocky Kumar Yadav and his men were travelling in a MUV which intercepted a SUV in which Aditya Kumar Sachdeva (20) was travelling along with four friends from Bodh Gaya to Gaya town in southern Bihar.

According to the complaint lodged with the police, Rocky Kumar Yadav then shot at Sachdeva apparently to teach him a lesson for overtaking his vehicle.

The DIG said Sachdeva was brought to Anugrah Narayan Medical College and Hospital where the attending doctors declared him as brought dead.

The police officer said following the incident, Bindi Yadav and security guard were detained. Police also recovered 70 rounds of ammunition and a carbine from the MLC's residence.

A manhunt has been launched to arrest Rocky Kumar Yadav too, the DIG said.

The youth's murder took political overtones with the Leader of Opposition (LoP) in Bihar Assembly Prem Kumar meeting the victim's family to express sorrow. Kumar later addressed a large number of people who had blocked road near Mahabir bridge to protest against the murder.

The protesters, led by the Gaya district unit BJP President Anil Swami, raised slogans against the district police demanding arrest of the prime accused in the murder case.

The JDU MLC, however, denied her son's role in Sachdeva's murder and said Rocky Kumar Yadav was innocent.

Devi's husband Bindeshwari Prasad Yadav had in the past been arrested in 2011 and 6000 rounds of ammunition of a weapon banned for use by public recovered from him.

He had also been jailed in a sedition case.
