The police added that 70 rounds of ammunition and a carbine was found in her residence in connection with the murder.
Aditya Sachdeva, the victim, was reportedly returning home after celebrating his birthday, when he overtook Rocky's car.
"There was no enmity or friendship with the youth who died. Both of the sides were returning from Bodh Gaya. All five of them (the victim and his friends) were under the influence of alcohol," Bindi said.
"Madam's (Manorama Devi's) bodyguard was with my son. They overtook the car and stopped him. My son was driving the car. Four, five of them pulled him out the car and started beating him," Bindi told ANI.
"The bodyguard came out of the car. During the scuffle, my son (Rocky) took out his licensed pistol in defence. It (the killing) happened by mistake," he added.
PTI reported that the JD(U) MLC, however, has denied her son's role in the murder of Sachdeva and said Rocky Kumar Yadav was innocent.
MLC Manorama Devi's husband Bindeshwari Prasad Yadav had in past been arrested, and a banned weapon was found on his person in 2011.
He had also been jailed in a sedition case.

Aditya's friend Aayush, who was with him when this incident happened, said they tried overtaking their car, but the other side started firing shots in the air.
"One of them was wearing a commando dress. They assaulted my friends and fired shots because of which my friend died," he added.
