SC notice to Lalu’s son for allegedly sheltering accused

New Delhi, Sep 23 (IANS) The Supreme Court on Friday sought a response from Bihar Health Minister Tej Pratap Yadav and criminal-turned-politician Mohamed Shahabuddin as to why an FIR cannot be filed against them for allegedly sheltering an accused in journalist Rajdev Ranjan’s murder.

Justice Dipak Misra and Justice C. Nagappan sought a response from Yadav – son of RJD leader Lalu Prasad – on a petition by Asha Ranjan, the widow of the late journalist. She sought a FIR against the two men.

While asking the Bihar Police to provide protection to Asha Ranjan and her family, the bench asked the CBI – which is probing the case – to file a status report on its investigation on October 17.

On a plea by Asha Ranjan seeking the transfer of the trial from Bihar to Delhi, the bench issued notice to the Bihar government seeking its response.

Asha Ranjan has also sought compensation from the state government.

Rajdev Ranjan was killed by people allegedly close to Shahabuddin.
