She said if the court seeks presence of her son he would go there. Asked where her son was, Devi said she does not know. Rocky Yadav is absconding since the death of Aditya Sachdeva, son of a Gaya businessman, allegedly due to bullet he had fired from his pistol at the car that had overtaken his SUV on the way to Gaya from Bodhgaya on Saturday night.

Meanwhile, Deputy Inspector General of Police (Magadh Range) Suarabh Kumar said the Gaya Police were finding out from where Rocky got license of his pistol. The police would also approach External Affairs Ministry to prevent Rocky from leaving the country, he said. Rocky's father, RJD leader Bindi Yadav, has been arrested and was sent to 14 days in judicial custody today by a Gaya court.
