PATNA: A grand welcome awaits controversial RJD leader Mohammad Shahabuddin who is expected to come out of jail on Saturday after 11 years.
His freedom from jail became imminent after the Patna High Court granted him bail on Wednesday in a murder case involving killing of sons of a Siwan businessman. He has already been granted bail or stay from the court in most of the cases pending against him.
Informed sources said soon after coming out of jail, Shahabuddin will head for his native Siwan district vtown in a cavalcade of some 1,000 cars.
It is reported that some four ministers and 30 lawmakers from the ruling RJD will join his cavalcade.
It’s already the celebration time for his supporters in Bihar. Ecstatic supporters today burst crackers and distributed sweets to celebrate their leaders’ possible release from jail tomorrow from the Bhagalpur central jail where he is currently lodged.
Shahabudidn who is lodged in jail since 2005 was shifted to Bhagalpur prison after the murder of a journalist Rajdeo Ranjan.
The action followed soon after a large number of cell phones and SIM cards were recovered from the Siwan jail where Shahabuddin was lodged then.
