The bench of Justice Pinaki Chandra Ghose and Justice Amitava Roy also issued notice on a plea seeking stay of the Patna High Court order granting bail to Shahabuddin.

While asking the Bihar government to serve notice on him, the bench directed the next hearing on the matter for the coming Monday (26 September).

The court order came on a plea by Chandrakeshwar Prasad, whose three sons were allegedly killed by a henchman Shahabuddin, and the Bihar government challenging the High Court order granting bail.

The Bihar government had also sought issuance of non-bailable warrant against Shahabuddin.
