Devi was sent to 14-day judicial custody after she surrendered. She claimed that she had been framed and that she was innocent. "The information is false, no liquor bottles were found in my house," she said.
Devi was suspended from her party last week after liquor bottles were found at her residence in Gaya. Police officials were looking for her son Rocky Yadav who had gone missing after allegedly killing 19-year-old Aditya Sachdeva.
Bindi Yadav, a criminal turned politician, was also arrested in connection with the killing of the teenager.
Meanwhile, Aditya's family has demanded a CBI probe into the case and speedy trial to ensure justice.
