Our Correspondent / New Delhi

SCThe Supreme Court on Monday will hear a petition seeking cancellation of bail to Bihar politician Muhammad Shahabuddin. A Siwan resident sought cancellation of the bail granted to former RJD MP Mohamed Shahabuddin on the ground that the politician would misuse his liberty to derail the trial in the murder of his son Rajiv Roshan.

Senior advocate Prashant Bhushan today filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking cancellation of bail granted to don-turned politician Mohammad Shahabuddin.

Meanwhile Bihar government too has moved the apex court challenging the grant of bail to Shahabuddin.

Bhushan told the bench that release of Shahabuddin would pose a serious threat to people.

Bhushan appeared for Siwan resident Chandrakeshwar Prasad whose three sons – two in twin murder case in 2004 and one later in 2014 – were allegedly killed by the henchmen of Shahabuddin.

Seeking the immediate stay of the bail and its eventual cancellation, the Siwan resident Chandrakeshwar Prasad in his petition has said that if the bail to Shahabuddin was not stayed “irreparable injury is going to cause to the interest of the present trial as well as other pending cases.”

Pointing out that that there was a “serious threat” his life and that of his family members, Chandrakeshwar Prasad has told the court that shahabuddin“Earlier also it has been seen that witnesses are too scared to depose against him and they turn hostile.”

Patna High Court had on September 7, 2016, released Shahabuddin on bail on the grounds that there was no progress in the trial of the case involving the murder of Rajiv Roshan. In Rajiv Roshan case Siwan strongman was shown as arrested on November 27, 2014.

 Chandrakeshwar Prasad in his petition has said that Shahabuddin is a “dreaded criminal, who has absolutely no regard for the law, and granting bail to him in the present case would let him come out of the jail as a free man even though he is still facing trial in many of the cases lodged against him.”

Chandrakeshwar Prasad in his petition has said that apart from the case of the murder of third son Rajiv Roshan, Shahabudding was allegedly involved “in at least 58 criminal cases of which in at least 8 he has been convicted.”

“Further, apparently, till November, 2014, at least 27 trials before the Magistrates and 11 Trials before the Sessions Courts were pending against him. He has been sentenced to life imprisonment in at least two cases including in the case of twin murder”, the petition reads.

Describing Shahabuddin as a hardened criminal and a history sheeter, the petitioner Chandrakeshwar Prasad says, “allowing an accused like him to be released (on) … regular bail, especially when witnesses in the present case are yet to depose, merely on the ground that he has been in custody for about two years and trial is yet to commence is nothing but travesty of justice.”

Apart from granting Shahabuddin bail in Rajiv Roshan murder case, the High Court had granted him in March 2016 in the twin murder case involving two younger brothers of Rajiv Roshan. However, he was not released as he was also under arrest for the murder of Rajiv Roshan.
