New Delhi: Chandrakeshwar Prasad whose three of four sons were murdered allegedly by former Mohammad Shahabuddin, on Friday filed an appeal in Supreme Court challenging Patna High Court's order granting bail to the former Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) MP.

Noted apex court lawyer Prashant Bhushan will represent Prasad in the case.

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

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.
