GAYA -- A court in Bihar's Gaya district today remanded Bindeshwari Prasad Yadav alias Bindi Yadav and his wife JD(U) MLC Manorama Devi's bodyguard Rajesh Kumar to 14-day judicial custody in connection with the murder case of 20 year-old Aditya Sachdeva.

Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate (ACJM) VI Sanjay Kumar Jha remanded them to judicial custody after the duo were produced in the court, a day after they were arrested in connection with the murder case in which the prime accused Rakesh Ranjan Yadav alias Rocky Yadav, the MLC's son, is absconding.

The two were being taken to Gaya central jail for interrogation, Magadh Zone DIG Saurabh Kumar said.

In a related development, four friends of the murdered youth travelling with him in car on Saturday night, recorded their statements under section 164 of CrPC (recording of confessions and statements).

Md Nasir, Md Kaifi, Ankit Kumar and Ayush Agrawal - all friends of Aditya Sachdeva, recorded their statements before the first-class judicial magistrate Rakesh Ranjan Singh narrating the sequence of events leading to their friend's murder by Rakesh Ranjan Yadav alias Rocky Yadav.

Aditya was shot dead allegedly by Rocky Kumar Yadav, son of JD(U) MLC Manorama Devi, following a scuffle over the youngster and his friends overtaking their Range Rover SUV.
