Patna: The Patna High Court on Thursday upheld the life sentence of former RJD lawmaker Mohammad Shahabuddin in connection with the 2004 Siwan acid attack case.
Three brothers — Rajiv, Satish and Girish — sons of a businessman, were killed on August 16, 2004. Satish and Girsh were drenched in acid before being killed, while Rajeev was murdered during his ride back home on a motorcycle.
Earlier on August 22, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had filed a chargesheet against Shahabuddin in the murder case of Siwan-based journalist Rajdeo Ranjan.
Rajdeo was shot down in Siwan as he was returning from office on May 13, 2016.
