Shahabuddin Back In Jail
- SC cancels bail
New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday cancelled the bail granted by Patna High Court to Mafia don and RJD politician Shahabuddin. Nitish Kumar government had filed a petition challenging the Patna HC order.
Earlier, on his release from prison following the bail, Shahabuddin declared his loyalty to RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav and, at the same time, commented derisively about Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar. Observers felt that the gangster’s comments would rock the JD (U)-RJD-Congress alliance and the government led by Nitish Kumar.
Following the decision of the SC, Shahabuddin surrendered in the court saying that he is a law-abiding citizen. The Siwan don who has been in jail facing several charges of murder would now go back to jail.
