Shahabuddin gets bail in one case

Siwan (Bihar): Incarcerated RJD MP Mohammed Shahabuddin was on Monday granted regular bail by a court here in connection with a scuffle which took place inside the Siwan jail between some inmates and employees on March 20. However, the MP, who is facing a life-term in a case of kidnapping, will remain in judicial custody.

Special Court Judge G.P. Srivastava allowed Shahabuddin’s bail plea after hearing his counsel, R. Kumar and the prosecution. The MP, along with 12 inmates, were named accused in the scuffle case. Already convicted in four cases, Shahabuddin is facing a life-term in one relating to the abduction of a CPI(M-L) worker. — PTI
