Janata Dal United (JDU) MLC Manorama Devi's son Rakesh Ranjan Yadav alias Rocky Yadav on Tuesday refuted police claims and said that he did not kill anyone.

"I have been wrongly implicated. I will reveal the truth in court," said Rocky.

This came shortly after police claimed that Rocky had confessed to killing 19-year-old Aditya Sachdeva. Police had claimed that Rocky shot at Aditya with a foreign made gun.

The Bihar Police arrested Rocky in the wee hours of Tuesday after conducting a series of raids. He was nabbed at his father Bindeshwari Prasad Yadav alias Bindi Yadav's hot mix plant in Bodh Gaya.

Earlier, Senior Superintendent of Police Garima Mallik had said, "We are recording Rocky Yadav's statement and he has confessed that he committed the crime. The arms licence is from Delhi. We have also sent a team to Delhi for investigation."

She had ruled out any political pressure in the case. "We are only under professional pressure to crack the case. We are ensuring that the victim's family is not intimidated by anyone," the Gaya SSP added.

Sachdeva was shot dead allegedly by Rocky Yadav for overtaking his SUV near police lines in Gaya district on Saturday night.

A Gaya court had on Monday remanded Rocky's father Bindi Yadav and bodyguard Rajesh Kumar to 14-day judicial custody in connection with the case.
