PATNA: An investigation by a top official has found that the photographs of jailed RJD politician Mohammad Shahabuddin which recently went viral in the social media were indeed “original” and shot well inside the Siwan jail where he is currently lodged.
Keeping cell phone in jail is an offence for a prisoner and it’s a matter of investigation how these photographs were taken inside the jail. Quite few of these photographs were selfies, it is said.
The investigation carried by the local district magistrate, however, has not confirmed when these photographs were taken.
Authorities have now decided to take helps from the technical experts to find out the period when these photographs were shot.
The photographs of Shahabuddin had gone viral in the social media earlier this month, prompting the jail IG Anand Kishore to order an investigation into the matter.
In the new photographs, the controversial RJD leader was seen in an entirely new get-up with shaven head and trimmed moustache. So far, he had been spotted in luxuriant hair and evenly-grown moustache.
