Patna, Aug 6 (UNI) Patna High Court today granted bail to incarcerated Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) M P Mohammad Shahabuddin in connection with an alleged violation of Arms Act.
Justice Shiv Kirti Singh granted bail to Mohd Shahabuddin after hearing the arguments of his counsel and the prosecution.
A case was registered against the RJD MP at Hussainganj police station in 2001 for possessing AK-47 rifle and hand grenade, violating the Arms Act.
The RJD MP would, however, remain behind the bars, as he was serving life term in Siwan Jail after being convicted in kidnapping and subsequent killing of a CPI(ML) leader.
He was also facing trial in connection with several other cases.
