Days after the cancellation of bail of RJD leader Mohammad Shahabuddin by the Supreme Court after which he was sent back to jail, another petition was on Thursday filed in the apex court against him. The petition has sought Shahabuddin’s transfer from Siwan to another jail in other states.
On September 30, Shahabuddin was back in prison 20 days after his release, as the Supreme Court set aside the Patna High Court order granting him bail in a murder case saying the discretion to release must be applied in “judicious manner” and “not as a matter of course”.
Shahabuddin was granted bail by the Patna High Court on September 7 in the Rajiv Roshan murder case and was released from Bhagalpur jail on September 10. He has already remained in jail for 11 years in connection with several cases.
Roshan, the eye witness to the gruesome killings of two of his younger siblings, was also killed few days before his proposed testimony in the murder case of his brothers.
