Acid attack: Patna high Court Rejects Shahabuddin plea, life imprisonment to Continue


Patna: Four people, including former MP Mohammad Shahabuddin, who had been sentenced to life imprisonment from the lower court in the famous acid massacre of Siwan district in Bihar, received no relief from the Patna High Court. The High Court has upheld the lower court’s decision in its judgment on Wednesday in this case.

The Patna High Court has upheld the lower court’s sentence while rejecting the petition filed by Shahabuddin in the acid attack case.

Significantly, Bahubali RJD leader and former MP Mohammad Shahabuddin is currently lodged in Tihar jail of Delhi in this case. Shahabuddin was sentenced to life imprisonment by the lower court. Challenging this decision Shahabuddin’s lawyer had approached the Patna High Court’s door.

A civil court in Siwan had sentenced four people, including Shahabuddin, to life imprisonment on December 11, 2015 after the acid attack of two brothers by killing them.

It is worth mentioning that on August 16, 2004, Girish, Satish and Rajiv, sons of Sevan’s businessman Chandrakeshwar Prasad alias Chanda Babu, were kidnapped. Girish and Satish were killed by putting acid, while Rajeev managed to escape from his clutches.

In this case, a case was lodged against Girish’s mother Kalawati Devi’s statement. Rajiv, the witness of the murder and the brother of the deceased, had told the court that during the incident, former MP Shahabuddin himself was present. Rajiv was later murdered. Shahabuddin is currently lodged in Tihar Jail of Delhi.
