Administration seeks permission from HC in Shahabuddin case
Patna, May 14 (UNI) Siwan district administration has sought permission from Patna High Court for starting trial of cases involving controversial RJD MP Mohammed Shahabuddin in Siwan divisional jail itself.
Official sources here said the district administration had made a request to that effect yesterday. A room of the Siwan divisional jail had to be notified as a special court which would hear cases pertaining to the RJD MP sources added.
More than 10 hardcore criminals including six close associates of Siwan MP Shahabuddin had been shifted to Chapra and Gopalganj district jails.
Six close associates of the MP were shifted to Gopalganj jail while six other inmates belonging to the rival group led by Rais Khan, were transferred to Chapra jail. The criminals had been shifted out of Siwan jail to avoid confrontation between the rival groups, sources added.
Meanwhile, the MRI conducted for diagnosing the MPs back pain in Patna at a scanning centre on Friday revealed that the lumbar in the lower portion of his spine had some problem.
The RJD MP is presently lodged in Siwan district jail for his alleged various offences including possessing foreign-made firearms, foreign currency and others.
