Supreme Court to hear petition against Shahabuddin's bail on Monday

New Delhi: The Supreme Court will hear on Monday a plea by a Siwan resident seeking cancellation of the bail granted to former RJD MP Mohamed Shahabuddin on the ground that the strongman-turned-politician would misuse his liberty to derail the trial in the murder of his son.

Chandrakeshwar Prasad alleged that his own life was in danger with the release of Shahabuddin, who was earlier convicted for the murder of his two sons.

Prasad has alleged that three of his sons were murdered by the strongman-turned politician.

Shahabuddin is the main accused in the murder of Chandrakeshwar Prasad's third son.
