The bench of Justice Dipak Misra and Justice Amitava Roy said this while senior counsel Shekhar Naphade appearing for Shahabuddin opposed the plea.

The Supreme Court in last week of September set aside the Patna high court order granting bail to controversial RJD leader Shahabuddin in connection with murder of an eye-witness, whose two brothers had been killed by his henchmen.

Shahabuddin granted bail by the Patna High Court on September 7, was released from Bhagalpur jail on September 10. He was in jail for 11 years in connection with dozens of cases against him.
