RJD MP Shahabuddin sentenced to life in 1999 kidnapping case

A local court here on Tuesday sentenced Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) MP Mohammad Shahabuddin to life imprisonment after finding him guilty in the 1999 abduction and suspected murder case of CPI-ML worker Chotelal Gupta.

Siwan (Bihar), May 8 : A local court here on Tuesday sentenced Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) MP Mohammad Shahabuddin to life imprisonment after finding him guilty in the 1999 abduction and suspected murder case of CPI-ML worker Chotelal Gupta.

Additional District and Sessions Judge Gyaneshwar Prasad Srivastava also imposed a fine of Rs 10,000 on Shahabuddin.

The court gave Shahabuddin a month to appeal against the sentence.

Shahabuddin's counsel Zulfikar Ali said they would appeal in a superior court against the lower court's order soon.

On May 5, the court held Shahabuddin guilty under Section 364 (kidnapping or abducting in order to murder) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) in the case relating to Gupta's kidnapping on February 7, 1999.

The trial of the case was held inside Siwan Jail for security reasons.

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.

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