Shahabuddin, former RJD lawmaker who came out of jail after 11 years, took no time to show his clout over the system. On Saturday, a cavalcade of Shabuddin had started from Bhagalpur to reach Siwan. On its route to Siwan, the cavalcade crossed a toll plaza at Muzaffarpur without paying the charges, Times Now reported on Sunday. Much to everyone’s shock, the toll plaza officials could show no audacity to stop or ask for the money from any of the vehicles in the cavalcade. If reports are to be believed, more than 200 cars were present in the convoy of this tainted leader. The entire incident was captured by the cameras installed at the toll plaza. The leader, who currently faces 63 cases against him, once again took a swipe at Bihar CM Nitish Kumar. Drawing a sharp narrative, Shahabuddin said that Nitish Kumar is not a ‘people’s chief minister.’ He said that Nitish Kumar became CM only because of his alliance with RJD, just like Jharkhand’s former chief minister Madhu Koda.
Reacting on his release, JDU remarked the development as a legal proceeding. While RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav evaded the question and asked the ‘apko kya taklif hai (what problem you are having).’ The Patna High Court granted bail to the tainted leader in the controversial Rajiv Roshan case. Shahabuddin was found guilty in 2004 for kidnapping of brothers Girish Raj and Satish Raj, giving them “an acid bath” and then murdering them. Shahabuddin’s son Osama was charged for killing of a Bharatiya Janata Party leader, Rajiv Roshan, who was a witness in the case.
