Supreme Court Cancels RJD Leader Shahabuddin’s Bail

The Supreme Court on Friday set aside the Patna high court’s order and cancelled the bail of controversial RJD leader Mohammad Shahabuddin.

The SC directed Shahabuddin to surrender and asked Bihar government to take immediate steps to bring him into custody.

Shahabuddin, a dreaded gangster turned politician from Siwan was granted bail  recently after 11 years of imprisonment. He was booked in the murder case of Rajiv Roshan, son of Siwan-based Chandrakeshwar Prasad and the sole eye-witness to the cold-blooded murder of his two younger brothers in Siwan. Besides, Shahabuddin’s name is involved in more than 40 cases and accused of murder, extortion, and kidnapping.

A bench comprising Justices P.C. Ghose and Amitava Roy directed the state government and the lower court to ensure that the trial in the Rajiv Roshan murder case is concluded “expeditiously as contemplated under the law”.

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar was highly criticised after Shahabuddin’s release because everyone thought that he bowed down to the pressure of his ally, the RJD leader Lalu Prasad Yadav. Thereafter, the Bihar government had also petitioned the court to cancel the bail of Shahabuddin.
