Former RJD MP Shahabuddin’s nephew shot dead
Siwan: Nephew of former Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) MP Mohammad Shahabuddin was shot dead in Siwan on Friday night, police sources said.
Talking to media Superintendent of Police (SP) Naveen Chandra Jha said Yusuf was shot on his chest.
“He was rushed to the hospital where he was declared dead. At the accident spot, we have found one empty gun and three bullets”, Jha said.
Police said investigation at the places close to the accident site is going on.
Worthwhile to note that Shahabuddin was elected four times as a Member of Parliament (MP) from Siwan. He is presently serving a prison term of 11 years for his involvement in the murder of Rajiv Roshan.
The death of Yusuf comes less than a week after a Bihar court framed charges against Shahabuddin and seven others in connection with journalist Rajdev Ranjan’s murder case. More details are awaited.
