SC notice to Shahabuddin on plea seeking cancellation of bail

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday issued notice to criminal-turned-politician Mohammad Shahabuddin on a plea challenging grant of bail to him in a murder case.

The bench of Justice Pinaki Chandra Ghose and Justice Amitava Roy also issued notice on a plea seeking stay of the Patna High Court order granting bail to Shahabuddin. 

While asking the Bihar government to serve notice on him, the bench directed the next hearing on the matter for the coming Monday (September 26).

The court order came on a plea by Chandrakeshwar Prasad, whose three sons were allegedly killed by a henchman Shahabuddin, and the Bihar government challenging the High Court order granting bail.

The Bihar government had also sought issuance of non-bailable warrant against Shahabuddin.
