Satish Raj (25) and Girish Raj (20), sons of a businessman, were abducted and killed on August 16, 2004. They were drenched in acid before being killed. The victim's elder brother Rajeev Roshan, who was an eyewitness in the murder of his two brothers, was shot dead on June 16, 2014, three days before he was to appear as witness.

A preliminary complaint was registered against Shahabuddin and his son Osama by Roshan’s father following the incident. The former RJD Lawmaker, who was sentenced for life imprisonment by Siwan Special Court, is in Bhagalpur Jail in connection with the double murder case.

The bail appeal was under consideration in Patna High Court for a long time. Siwan court had on December 12, 2015 sentenced Shahabuddin to life imprisonment in the 2004 double murder case. On March 2 this year, Shahabuddin got bail from Patna High Court in the double murder case.
