Shahabuddin keeps administration on its toes for whole night
Siwan, May 10 (UNI) The Siwan administration had to face problems from incarcerated RJD MP Mohammad Shahabuddin, who allegedly beat the jail superintendent late last night and reportedly threatened him with dire consequences if his demands were not met.
Official sources said here today that the high voltage drama began late last evening over some issue inside the jail premises and continued till this morning.
According to sources, the situation became volatile when Shahabuddin was being examined for his backache by a team of doctors and orthopaedic surgeons. The controversial MP reportedly manhandled and beat the jail superintendent Lalan Prasad when the latter refused to oblige with his undue demands as it were against the norms of the jail.
Soon after getting the information, the District Magistrate S K Mull, accompanied by the Police Superintendent, rushed to the jail at around 2230 and pacified the MP. However, it took the night for him to convince Md Shahabuddin, sources added.
Mr Mull, who came out of the jail 0730 hrs this morning told newspersons that following some confusion and misunderstanding, the scuffle took place between the MP and the jail administration.
The matter had been resolved, he added.
Mr Mull ruled out filing of an FIR by the jail superintendent in this connection and claimed Md Shahabuddin had not threatened the jail superintendent with dire consequences.
He said all the demands of the incarcerated MP had been fulfilled and he had been given a separate room inside the jail.
