PATNA: A special court trying the RJD MP Md. Shahabuddin inside the Siwan Jail on Saturday sentenced him to three-year rigorous imprisonment for possessing and concealing a stolen vehicle. This is the third verdict against him in less than four months.

Special judge V.V. Gupta, however, acquitted him in another case relating to the kidnapping of an entrepreneur, Viren Pandey, in September 2003 for want of evidence. Four witnesses turned hostile and the complainant himself never turned up to press his charges.
