Police have recovered the weapon used in the crime. “The main accused Rocky Yadav was arrested from his father Bindi Yadav’s mixer plant located at Mastpura village of Bodh Gaya Police Station of Gaya district. Rocky was arrested along with the weapon (Bretta pistol) used in the crime,” Senior Superintendent of Police Garima Mallik told reporters.

Mallik claimed that Rocky, who was produced before media persons during a press conference with a mask on his face, had admitted to his crime in a statement. However, minutes later Rocky Yadav pleaded innocence and denied that he was involved.

“I was in Delhi...when my mother called me. I came and presented myself before the SSP... I did not open fire,” Rocky Yadav told reporters. “I’ll tell everything in the court,” he said. To a query whether Rocky has surrendered or was arrested, the SSP said, “It is definitely an arrest.” Aditya Sachdeva was shot dead allegedly by Rocky Yadav for overtaking his vehicle. The SSP said that the license of the pistol had been issued in the name of Rocky Yadav from Delhi and the vehicle had also been registered in the name of Rocky Yadav.
