PATNA: A man from Bihar Chandrakeshwar Prasad whose three sons were killed in cold blood today filed a petition in the Supreme Court, seeking cancellation of the bail granted to controversial RJD politician Mohammad Shahabuddin.
Prasad who has lost his three sons hails from Siwan, also the native town of Shahabuddin. While two sons were killed by getting bahted in acid, the third one who was a witness in the case was shot dead later on. The victim family alleges the complicity of Shahabuddin in the murder cases.
The complaint was filed through prominent lawyer Prashant Bhushan.
“The man (Shahabuddin) should either be exiled from Bihar or hanged,” Prasad told the media on Friday, while also seeking a CBI inquiry into the murder of three children.
Bhushan told the media in New Delhi that a free trial wouldn’t be possible now that the history-sheeter was out on bail.
Shahabuddin walked out of jail last week after the bail was granted by the Patna High Court. He was released on bail after 11 years of incarceration.
The entire opposition in Bihar has taken to streets since Shahabuddin was granted bail by the court and has accused the state government of clandestinely helping the RJD strongman secure his release.
A delegation of the NDA recently met Bihar Governor Ram Nath Kovind, seeking cancellation of his bail and imposition of Crime Control Act (CCA) on Shahabuddin.
Today again the NDA observed “Dhikkar Diwas” across the state to protest his bail. In the past two days, they had also staged sit-ins with the same demand.
Victims’ families too are protesting and have sought jailing of Shahabuddin, apprehending threats to their live and witnesses.
Amid the increasing demand of his arrest, the state government is now said to be mulling to challenge Shahabuddin’s bail in the Supreme Court.
