Twenty-six-year-old Yadav, the younger son of former Chief Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav, has come to the rescue of the state government since the son of a ruling party lawmaker allegedly shot dead a teenager for speeding past his SUV in Gaya.
Rocky Yadav has already been arrested and his mother, JDU MLC Manorama Devi, has gone into hiding after an arrest warrant was issued against her over a liquor stash in her residence.
Tejaswi Yadav has slammed the BJP and the media for targeting the government in the road rage case. “If a relative of any accused is member of a party (it) does not mean that the lawbreaker enjoys protection of the power that be,” he was quoted by the above-mentioned website.
