PATNA: Jailed RJD politician Mohammad Shahabuddin was shifted to All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in New Delhi under heavy security cover yesterday.
Shahabuddin who was lodged in the high-security Bhagalpur central jail was sent to AIIMS by Dibrugarh-New Delhhi Rajdhani Express on Wednesday evening with a total of 23 police men providing him a security cover.
The RJD strongman is said to be currently suffering from back pain. However, the agility with which he walked up to the steps of railway over-bridge at Naugachhia station to catch the train stunned the police officials given the fact that he claims to be suffering from back pain.
Reports said initially Shahbuddin refused to board the “rickety” prisoner van and then expressed annoyance over his seat reservation in AC-2 tier. He wanted to travel in AC-1 class but had no option.
His shifting comes barely a day after he apprehended threats to his life from the state government.
He made this allegation in a petition filed in the court of additional district judge-IV, Siwan, Ajay Kumar Srivastava.
He said he was seriously ill but the government was not paying attention to his health adding he had no faith in the medical team formed to look after his heath.
