Patna HC to hear Shahabuddins petition in abduction case

The Patna High Court will today take up a petition filed by Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) MP Mohammad Shahabuddin challenging a Siwan court order which sentenced him to life imprisonment after finding him guilty in an abduction case.

Patna, May 30 : The Patna High Court will today take up a petition filed by Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) MP Mohammad Shahabuddin challenging a Siwan court order which sentenced him to life imprisonment after finding him guilty in an abduction case.

Earlier, a Division Bench comprising Justices S K Singh and S A Khan deferred the hearing after Shahabuddin's counsel asked for more time.

The appeal against the May 8 verdict of a special court in Siwan had been filed by Shahabuddin's counsel Rajesh Kumar Singh.

The court held Shahabuddin guilty in the February 7, 1999 abduction and suspected murder case of CPI-ML worker Chotelal Gupta under Section 364 (kidnapping or abducting in order to murder) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

The Siwan MP has already been given a two-year jail term in connection with an attack on the CPI (ML) local office. It was for the first time that Shahabuddin, facing nearly 40 criminal cases, faced conviction.

Shahabuddin had attacked and ransacked the office, inflicting injuries on the people present at the CPI (ML) office in 1998. CPI (ML) leader Keshav Baitha had registered the case at the Muffasil Police Station the same year.

The MP has been convicted in connection with the Khurwabad case in which he and his armed supporters were alleged to have exploded bombs at the party office and assaulted the CPI-ML Secretary Baitha.

He is facing other criminal cases related to murder, abduction, violation of the Foreign Exchange Act, the Arms Act, power theft, and Wildlife Violation Act.
