Nitish Govt. wants cancellation of bail granted to Shahabuddin, to move SC
Mohammad Shahabuddin, a criminal turned lawmaker from Lalu Yadav's RJD, has stirred up politics in Bihar after stepping out of jail last week. He has brought a turmoil between the not-so-strong relationship between Lalu Prasad Yadav and Nitish Kumar.
Now, the Nitish government is preparing to file an appeal in the Supreme Court against the bail granted to him by the Patna High Court.

JD(U) spokesperson Ajay Alok said, "This has been an established process followed by Nitish Kumar government in the past 11 years that if the state is not satisfied with the bail of somebody, it goes in appeal in higher court.....It has been done in the past and would be followed in the present case of Shahabuddin too," reports DNA.

However, the BJP, which is in opposition, is doubtful about the intentions of the state government seeing the delay in the process of filing appeal for cancellation of the bail. However, the JD(U) has made it clear that the delay happened as the courts were closed on account of festival.

Meanwhile, the Bihar police is scrutinising if Shahabuddin has violated any condition of the bail granted to him. Siwan Superintendent of Police Saurav Kumar Sah said that there will be 'no compromise' in cases against Shahabuddin.

"If any evidence comes to the surface indicating violation of condition of bail we will move for cancellation of bail in the case," said Sah.

Shahabuddin, after walking out of the prison post his bail, created controversy by saying, "For me Lalu Prasad is the leader" and Nitish Kumar is the chief minister "circumstantially".
