The Patna High Court today granted bail to controversial RJD leader Mohammad Shahbuddin in a case of murder of a witness in the killing of two brothers in Siwan by bathing them in acid.
The bail was granted by Justice Jitendra Mohan Sharma to Shahabuddin in the case.
The petitioner’s counsel Y V Giri told the court that the allegation against Shahabuddin in the killing of witness Rajiv Roshan was baseless as he was lodged in Bhagalpur jail since 2014 while the incident took place in Siwan the next year.
The RJD strongman and four-term former MP from Siwan is at present lodged in Bhagalpur jail.
In a chilling incident, two brothers were killed in Siwan in 2004 by bathing them in acid. Their elder brother Rajiv Roshan who was an eyewitness in the case was shot dead in 2015.
Giri claimed that his client has secured bail in all cases against him and would walk out of jail soon.
