Mohammad Shahabuddin arrives in Delhi, will be shifted to Tihar Jail

Former Rashtriya Janata Dal MP Mohammad Shahabuddin has been brought to Delhi on Sunday. He will be taken to Tihar jail in Delhi.

According to a report in The Hindu, a stampede-like situation prevailed in New Delhi Railway Station's platform number 16 when Shahabuddin reached Delhi from Bihar’s Siwan Jail on Sunday morning amid high security.

The former RJD MP was shifted to Delhi's Tihar Jail in accordance with the direction of the Supreme Court. Hundreds had already gathered in the platform with placards to welcome him, shouting slogans in favour of Shahabuddin and against Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.


More than 20 security personnel accompanied Shahabuddin as he boarded the New Delhi-bound Sampoorna Kranti Express which left Rajendra Nagar Terminal station at 5.45pm.

On Saturday, he was brought to Rajendra Nagar Terminal station in the Patna from Beur Central Jail, where he was shifted from Siwan prison earlier in the day.

Rajendra Nagar Terminal station was turned into a virtual fortress by the police administration as a large number of supporters of the former MP jostled to get a glimpse of the gangster-turned-politician, reported Hindustan Times.

The former MP from Siwan was moved out of the Beur jail at around 4 pm in a prisoners’ van, which was followed by more than 10 police vehicles.
