Bihar govt, victim's family move Supreme Court against bail granted to Mohammad Shahabuddin

Patna: Nitish Kumar-led Bihar government on Friday moved Supreme Court against the bail granted to former Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) MP Mohammad Shahabuddin.

It is being said that the decision to challenge the bail granted to Shahabuddin was taken in the wake of protests by opposition.

Shahabuddin was released on bail in connection with the murder of a witness in the killing of two brothers in Siwan district.

Earlier today, Chandrakeshwar Prasad whose three of four sons were murdered allegedly by the criminal-turned politician, filed appeal in apex court challenging Patna High Court's order granting bail to the former RJD MP.

The controversial RJD strongman was released from Bhagalpur jail on September 10, after being there for 11 years in connection with dozens of cases against him.

Roshan was a witness to the murder of his brothers Gitish and Satish, who were drenched with acid in 2004. The trial for Roshan's murder is yet to start.

Meanwhile, facing flak over Shahabuddin's release from jail, the Bihar government is also reportedly considering filing an appeal in the Supreme Court against the bail granted to him.
