In a major blow, the Supreme Court on Friday cancelled the bail plea of RJD leader Mohd Shahabuddin.
Mohd Shahabuddin surrendered before Siwan District Court in Bihar.
However, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar-led Bihar government filed an appeal in the apex court, challenging the Court’s order granting bail.
The Activist lawyer Prashant Bhushan also challenged the bail granted to the former Siwan MP Mohammed Shahabuddin by Patna High Court.
Earlier, Shahabuddin said he is ready to go back to jail if the apex court ordered it. He refused to comment on the apex court order which did not grant an interim stay on his bail.
