Patna: Patna High Court Tuesday rejected
the bail petition of former RJD MP Mohammad Shahabuddin in
connection with a kidnapping case in Siwan district here.

Justice Rakesh Kumar dismissed his plea for bail after
hearing his counsel Shakeel Ahmed Khan, a former RJD minister
and the standing counsel for the state.

Shahabuddin moved the application for regular bail in
a case registered against him on August 16, 1994, charging him
with being involved in kidnapping of two locals Girish and
Satish, who were later freed.

Shahabuddin is at present lodged in judicial custody in
Siwan jail in connection with around half-a-dozen cases
related to kidnapping and murder.
