"I do not know about it," Prasad said, when asked about Prashant Bhushan and Bihar government moving Supreme Court with an appeal against Patna HC granting bail to Shahabuddin. When pressed further for his comment, the RJD chief said "When the state government has taken a decision what can I say about it. The government would see what it has to do."

Siwan strongman Shahabuddin is a close aide of Prasad and is a member of party's central committee. Shahabuddin, who is in the eye of storm ever since his release from Bhagalpur jail on Saturday after being granted bail from Patna High Court in a case of murder of a witness in the killing of two brothers by bathing them in acid, said he respected court and would abide by its order.

"I came out of jail on the order of the court and if another order comes I will go inside again," Shahabuddin told mediapersons in Siwan.

"The entire country respects the court... Am I away from the country," the RJD leader said. The apex court has agreed to listen to the application by Prashant Bhushan seeking cancellation of bail to Shahabuddin on Monday.
