"SSP Gaya has been directed to ensure a speedy trial in the case. The investigation is still on and it will be completed within three weeks and charge-sheet will be filed within a month," Additional Director General of Police (Headquarters) Sunil Kumar told reporters.
The main accused Rakesh Ranjan Yadav alias Rocky Yadav was arrested in the wee hours today with a pistol used in the crime, the ADGP said, adding 19 cartridges had also been seized from the accused.
Aditya Sachdeva was shot dead allegedly by Rocky Yadav for overtaking his vehicle near the police lines in Gaya district on Saturday night.
When pointed out that Yadav denied opening fire, the ADGP said, "No accused confesses that he has committed the crime. Let him say whatever he is saying. He will get an opportunity during the trial."
So far as the police are concerned, we have enough evidence to prove his guilt in the case. We have circumstantial evidence, scientific evidence, weapon and vehicle used in the crime, statements of witnesses under 164 of CrPC, he said hours after the Gaya police nabbed the accused.
Stating that two accused persons- Rocky's father Bindi Yadav and bodyguard Rajesh Kumar- have already been arrested, Kumar said that efforts are on to nab another accomplice Tany Yadav, who was present in the SUV and is absconding.
A forensic science laboratory team has been sent to Gaya from Patna to collect scientific evidence such as fingerprints and ballistic evidence which would be helpful in proving the case, he said.
