The Supreme Court on Thursday adjourned the hearing on the plea to cancel the bail of former Siwan MLA and RJD leader Mohammad Shahabuddin for another day.
The apex court on Wednesday came down heavily on Bihar government for not placing facts before the Patna High Court which granted bail to controversial RJD leader Mohd Shahabuddin in a murder case.
The counsel for Nitish Kumar government, which has RJD as its coalition partner in the state, faced searching questions in the apex court which rebuked it for not being serious in pursuing the case against Shahabuddin.
“Why have you approached the court only after his release? Were you in slumber till he got bail? This is a peculiar case. But the question is this peculiarity has been done at whose instance and who is behind this.
Prashant Bhushan, who is representing the parents of three men allegedly killed by Shahabuddin, told the Supreme Court bench on Monday that he was a threat to society while out on bail.
