Janata Dal United (JDU) MLC Manorama Devi was suspended from the party on Tuesday, hours after the arrest of her son Rakesh Ranjan Yadav alias Rocky Yadav for allegedly shooting dead a young man in a road rage incident.

24-year-old Rocky, who was arrested by the police early in the morning from his father's mixer plant after he was absconding for three days, was sent to judicial custody for two weeks by a Gaya court.

Manorama had been claiming that her son was not hiding and that he should be punished if found guilty. Police claimed they also recovered a Bretta pistol used in the crime.

Rocky is accused of shooting dead Aditya Sachdeva in a fit of road rage after the 19-year-old overtook the car driven by the MLC's son.

Though police claimed Rocky admitted to the crime, house later in front of media persons he pleaded innocence.

"I was in Delhi...when my mother called me I came and presented myself before the SSP... I did not open fire," Rocky told reporters.
