PATNA: The Patna High Court today granted bail to former MP and RJD strongman Mohammad Shabuddin in a case relating to the killing of two brothers by drenching them in acid 12 years ago.

A division bench of Justice Anjana Mishra and Justice R K Mishra granted bail to Shahbuddin in the case for want of evidence.

A Siwan court had on December 12 last year sentenced former Shahabuddin to life imprisonment in the 2004 double murder case.

Satish Raj (25) and Girish Raj (20), sons of a businessman, were abducted and killed on August 16, 2004. They were drenched in acid before being killed.

A case in this regard was registered with Muffasil police station of Siwan.

The victim's elder brother Rajiv Roshan (36), who was an eyewitness in the murder of his two brothers, was shot dead on June 16, 2014, three days before he was to appear as witness.

The bail would not bring out the former MP out of Siwan jail as he is facing conviction in other cases.

Shahbuddin's lawyer Y V Giri argued that the name of his client was added in the murder case after 62 months of the incident and pleaded his non-involvement in the case.
