Patna: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) MP Mohammad Shahabuddin on Friday accused the BJP of unnecessarily politicising the issue of his release on bail following a Patna High Court order.
Talking to ANI, the RJD leader said, ''BJP doesn't love Rajdeo Ranjan or Chandrakeshwar. They are just against me being out on bail.''
Shahabuddin also questioned media for projecting him as an accused in he journalist Rajdeo Ranjan murder case.
Where did my name come in from in Rajdeo Ranjan case? Does police FIR have my name, or the chargesheet?, he asked.
When quizzed about his shooter Mohd Kaif alias Bunty Kaif, the don-turned-politician said, ''Mohd Kaif just had a fight in his "mohalla" and now he is being labelled as a sharpshooter.''
Asked about a controversy over Kaif's photo with RJD Lalu Yadav's son Tej Pratap, Shahabuddin said, ''Mohd Kaif has pictures with a lot of people, why should one not be in a picture with him.''
However, he added that he will abide by any decision taken by the apex court in his case.
Shahabuddin made these remarks shortly after the Nitish Kumar-led Bihar government moved Supreme Court against the bail granted to him by the Patna High Court.
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.
