Shahabuddin is presently lodged in high-security Tihar Jail in the national capital and as per the order the trial would be conducted in the CBI court through video conferencing from 26 May.

The four times RJD MP from Siwan is alleged to have been involved in the murder of Rajdeo Ranjan, a journalist of a prominent Hindi daily in Siwan in 2015. Shahabuddin is facing trial in more than 45 criminal cases and was moved to Tihar Jail in February 2017 on a Supreme Court order on the pleas by Siwan native Chandrakeshwar Prasad, whose three sons were killed in two separate incidents.

Rajdeo Ranjan, district bureau chief of a Hindi daily was gunned down on 14 May, 2016 and his wife has accused Shahabuddin's role in the killing.
