Patna (Bihar): After the Supreme Court of India cancelled bail of former RJD MP Mohammad Shahabuddin, he has surrendered before a Bihar’s Siwan district today.

After surrendering in court, Shahabuddin told the media that he respected the apex court’s decision, he was taken into custody by the state police.

He however, attacked Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar by saying that his supporters will give him a reply in the next assembly elections.

Earlier in the day, the Supreme Court set aside the Patna High Court’s September 7 order granting him bail in the Rajiv Roshan murder case.

The apex court had reserved its order today after hearing three petitions by Rajiv Roshan’s father Chandrakeshwar Prasad, his wife Kalawati Devi and the state government for cancellation of Shahabuddin’s bail.

Shahabuddin, early this week said he would abide by the apex court’s order, whatever it may be. His supporters were upset over the apex court’s order.
