Siwan, Bihar:  Former RJD lawmaker Mohammad Shahabuddin sentenced to life imprisonment in murder case of two brothers 11 years ago in Bihar's Siwan district. The former lawmaker and three others were held guilty by a special court yesterday.

Additional District Judge (ADJ) Ajay Kumar Srivastava passed the order pronouncing Shahabuddin, Rajkumar Saha, Sheikh Aslam and Arif Hussain guilty of charges under sections 302 (murder), 364A (kidnapping for ransom, etc), 201 (causing disappearance of evidence of offence, or giving false information to screen offender) and 120B (criminal conspiracy) of the IPC.

According to the prosecution, three sons of one Chandrashekhar Prasad were abducted from their house at Goshala road by Rajkumar Sah, Sheikh Aslam and Arif Hussain on August 16, 2004 and taken to Pratappur village where acid was poured on Girish and Satish resulting in their death. One of the sons, Rajeev Raushan, managed to escape.

The bodies of the two brothers could not be recovered.

The victims' mother Kalawati Devi had lodged an FIR charging Shahabuddin's three henchmen with the murder of her sons.

Mohammad Shahabuddin's name had cropped up during probe and he too was made an accused for hatching conspiracy for kidnapping of the three siblings.

The lone surviving brother appeared before the judge as an eyewitness in the case, but was subsequently murdered by unidentified assailants on June 16 last year.

The former lawmaker is lodged in the Siwan central jail for the past several years in connection with several cases against him.
