The Patna High Court has granted bail to the former MP of Bihar, Mohammad Shahabuddin who is serving life imprisonment in connection of a double murder case and kidnapping.
After hearing the bail petition, the court bench headed by Justice Anjana Prakash granted bail to the former MP.
Previously, his bail petition was rejected by the high court in January this year.
Last year, the special court in Siwan district found Shahabuddin guilty and awarded him life imprisonment in a 2004 case, in which he and his men were charged for acid attack on two brothers Girish Raj and Satish Raj and killing both.
Shahabuddin has been in jail for several years in connection with many serious criminal offences.
According to police officials, Shahabuddin has been convicted under charges of criminal conspiracy, kidnapping and murder.
Shahabuddin’s son Osama has also been charged for the killing of a local BJP leader Rajiv Roshan, who was a witness in the murder case of the two brothers.
