SC to hear petition against Shahabuddin’s bail on Monday
New Delhi, Sep 16 (IANS) The Supreme Court will hear on Monday a plea by a Siwan resident seeking cancellation of the bail granted to former RJD MP Mohamed Shahabuddin on the ground that the strongman-turned-politician would misuse his liberty to derail the trial in the murder of his son.
Chandrakeshwar Prasad alleged that his own life was in danger with the release of Shahabuddin, who was earlier convicted for the murder of his two sons.
The Patna High Court had released Shahabuddin as the trial in the case of the murder of Chandrakeshwar Prasad’s third son has not yet commenced.
Prasad has alleged that three of his sons were murdered by the strongman-turned politician.
Shahabuddin is the main accused in the murder of Chandrakeshwar Prasad’s third son.
The petition by Chandrakeshwar Prasad has been filed by lawyer Prashant Bhushan.
