New Delhi: Former RJD MP Mohammad Shahabuddin was released on Saturday from jail after 11 years in Rajiv Raushan murder case.

Shahabuddin, who was serving his jail term for the murder of Rajiv Raushan, was granted bail by the Patna High Court on Wednesday.

After walking free, Shahabuddin said he was framed and it was court that jailed him and has now released him as well.

“We all know I was framed. But it was Court who jailed me, Court has released me,” Mohammad Shahabuddin said.

“This has nothing to do with politics. Judiciary has its own procedures. We all know I was framed. But it was Court who jailed me, Court has released me,” said the former Bihar MP.

Shahabuddin was found guilty for kidnapping of brothers Girish Raj and Satish Raj and then murdering them. His son Osama was charged for the killing of BJP leader Rajiv Raushan, who was a prime witness in the case.
