Former MP and RJD strongman Mohammad Shahabuddin is all set to walk out of jail today after a period of 11 years.

On September 7, Patna high court granted bail to controversial RJD leader in in a case of murder of a witness in the killing of two brothers in Siwan by bathing them in acid.

Rajiv was prime witness in the case of brutal murder of his two brothers- Girish Raj and Satish Raj- at Shahabuddin's native village in Siwan district on August 16, 2004.

Rajiv was shot dead in Siwan on June 16, 2014 when Shahabuddin was in jail. Shahabuddin's son Osama was accused of killing Rajiv, while the jailed former MP was later made accused in the case as conspirator.

The bail was granted by Justice Jitendra Mohan Sharma to Shahabuddinin in the case.

The petitioner's counsel Y V Giri told the Courtthat the allegation against Shahabuddinin the killing of witness Rajiv Roshan was baseless as he was lodged in Bhagalpur jail since 2014 while the incident took place in Siwan the next year. 

The RJD strongman and four-term former MP from Siwan is at present lodged in Bhagalpur jail. 

In a chilling incident, two brothers were killed in Siwan in 2004 by bathing them in acid. Their elder brother Rajiv Roshan who was an eyewitness in the case was shot dead in 2015.
