Former RJD MP and Siwan strongman Mohammad Shahabuddin will be walking out of jail after 11 years, as Patna High Court granted him bail in the much-publicised Rajiv Raushan murder case. Rajiv was the prime witness in the brutal and cold-blooded murder of his two brothers: Girish Raj and Satish Raj, who were murdered at Shahabuddin’s native village in Siwan district on August 16, 2004.

On June 16, 2014, Rajiv was shot dead while Shahabuddin was still in jail. Osama, Shahabuddin’s son was accused of killing Rajiv. Later his father Shahabuddin was also made an accused in the murder case as a conspirator.

A single bench of Justice Jitendra Mohan Sharma granted bail to Shahabuddin in Rajiv murder case on Wednesday. The former lawmaker is already on bail in the case related to murder of brothers, Girish Raj and Satish Raj.

“As Shahabuddin has got bail from different courts in all other criminal cases pending against him, he can now walk out of the jail after completing certain formalities,” his counsel Y V Giri told reporters of The Times Of India.

A police officer said, Shahabuddin, who is currently lodged in Bhagalpur central jail, was now being shifted to Siwan district jail. The former MP might reach Siwan by Thursday evening or Friday, he said.

The former MP would have to complete certain legal formalities at Siwan CJM court on the basis of Patna high court’s bail order, and he would be freed to walk out from the jail.

Shahabuddin is in jail since November 2005 after he was rounded-off from his residence in New Delhi by a joint team of Siwan Police and Delhi Police.

Few months back, Bihar Minority Affairs Minister Abdul Ghafoor was seen feasting with murder convict Mohammad Shahbuddin inside the Siwan jail.
