The Bihar government earning bad reputation, after repeatedly bails to veterans.

In a major setback to state government on October 19 when the single bench of chief justice of Patna High Court granted bail to Rocky Yadav, a main accused in the road rage murder case of Aditya Sachdeva of Gaya. The victim was allegedly shot dead by Yadav from point-blank range on May 7 this year.

In the last 40 days it was third case, where the state government lost its face. The first was the case of Mohammad Shahabuddin who got bail from the same court on September 7, whereas the second case was of Raj Balabh Yadav, RJD MLA. The suspended MLA who is main accused in the case of raping a minor girl was granted bail on September 30.

After the issue getting highlighted into the media, the state government managed to salvage its reputation by getting Mohammad Shahabuddin bail canceled in the Apex Court on September 20, bails to the two other accused have undoubtedly dented the reputation of the head of the Bihar government because of his ‘clean’ image. 

The state government has knocked the doors of the Supreme Court to ensure cancellation of the bail of notorious RJD legislators whereas it considers to challenge against the bail of Rocky Yadav in the highest.

Opposition leaders as well as family members of the victims making allegations that the earlier two got bail because of state government’s soft corner towards the accused. Sushil Kumar Modi, BJP leader and former deputy chief minister said, 

“The state government deliberately engage a very weak lawyer to pursue the ground for the victims before the courts, enabling the latter to grant bails to the accused”. The victims parents also levelled similar charges against the state government. 

God only hope for us because We have lost faith in the system, said Aditya Sachdeva Parents. Janta Dal(U) MLC, Neeraj Sinha, however, defended the state government saying, There was no relaxation on the part of the government. Only the judiciary have right to decision of jail and bail to the accused.  

The state government has already filed petitions in the supreme court to cancel the bail of Raj Ballabh Yadav and would go to the apex court soon against the bail of Rocky Yadav, he also said.
