Gaya Additional District and Sessions Judge Sachchidanand Singh also handed a five-year jail to Rocky's father Bindeshwari Prasad Yadav aka Bindi Yadav.
On August 31, the court had convicted Rocky Yadav and two others under Section 302 of the Indian Penal Code for the fatal shooting of Aditya Sachdeva who had overtaken his (Rocky) vehicle in Gaya town on May 7, 2016.
Those given life terms included Rocky Yadav's convicted cousin Teny Yadav and a bodyguard of his mother Manorama Devi, a former Member of the Legislative Council from the Janata Dal-United.
Rocky's lawyer said they will challenge the order in the Patna High Court.
The parents of Aditya Sachdeva welcomed the court verdict.
During the trial, the victim's four friends who were case eyewitnesses turned hostile.
According to the police chargesheet, Rocky was driving a new Land Rover costing around Rs 1.5 crore and carrying a licenced Italian pistol when he got into a fight with Aditya and his friends, who were returning home after a birthday party in Gaya.
