The Supreme Court will also hear a plea by Chandrakeshwar Prasad on Monday seeking cancellation of the bail granted to Shahabuddin on the ground that the he would misuse his liberty to derail the trial in the murder of his son.

Shahabuddin was released from jail after 11 years in connection with Rajeev Roshan murder case after the Patna High Court granted him bail on Wednesday. Rajeev was an eyewitness in the 2004 double murder case.

Soon after his release, he kicked off a controversy by saying, "For me Lalu Prasad is the leader and Nitish Kumar is the chief minister circumstantially." After his release from the Bhagalpur divisional jail, he left in a convoy of over 300 vehicles for Siwan. He was accorded a grand reception by his supporters and RJD workers.
Supreme Court Agrees To Hear Plea Against Mohammad Shahabuddin's Bail
Shahabuddin, who is a member of RJD National Committee - the top decision making body of the party - and is known to be close to the RJD chief Lalu Prasad, said categorically that he never enjoyed good relations with Kumar. Various pending cases against Shahabuddin were reopened and he was sent to jail after Kumar had assumed power in 2005. He was however quick to add that it was the court which sent him to jail and the court ordered his release from the jail.

Chandrakeshwar Prasad alleged that his own life was in danger with the release of Shahabuddin, who was earlier convicted for the murder of his two sons. The Patna High Court had released Shahabuddin as the trial in the case of the murder of Chandrakeshwar Prasad's third son has not yet commenced.

Shahabuddin is the main accused in the murder of Chandrakeshwar Prasad's third son. The petition by Chandrakeshwar Prasad has been filed by lawyer Prashant Bhushan.
