Return of 'Jungle Raj in Bihar? Shahabuddin's convoy passes by without paying toll tax; WATCH
A huge convoy went to receive Md Shahabuddin from Bhagalpur jail and celebrated his release on Saturday.
Patna: In yet another indication of return of 'Jungle Raj' in Nitishh Kumar-ruled Bihar, a video showing more than hundred vehicles of RJD strongman Mohammad Shahabuddin's convoy passing without paying toll tax on national highway near Muzaffarpur has now come to fore.
A huge convoy went to receive Shahabuddin from Bhagalpur jail and celebrated his release on Saturday.
Due to his fear, the toll plaza staff did not even ask for tax from the vehicles who passed from there.
The staff members were also not able to count the number of vehicles involved in convoy.
Noteworthy, RJD strongman walked out of jail after 13 years on Saturday morning.
He was earlier granted bail by Patna High Court in connection with the murder case of a witness.
It has also come to fore that Manihar police officials had directed the plaza manager of NH-28 near Kaji Inda to make it toll free for the convoy.
The orders were passed nearly three hours before the vehicles passed the area.
The manager informed that in order to save some VVIPs from traffic, they allow them to evade toll tax. However, this time the orders were for Shahabuddin's convoy that contain more than hundred vehicles.
Notably, the convoy had some red beacon vehicles as well as others of them were bearing the RJD and SP flags along their sides.
