Patna, May 15: In yet another incident exposing law and order situation in Bihar, former Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) MP Mohammad Shahabuddin's nephew Shyam Babu alias Javed was shot dead in Siwan.
Javed, a key witness in the Yusuf murder case, was shot dead by bike-borne assailants. Yusuf was also nephew of Mohammad Shahabuddin.
Shahabuddin was elected four times as a Member of Parliament (MP) from Siwan. He was imprisoned for 11 years for his involvement in the murder of Rajiv Roshan.
The death of Yusuf came less than a week after a Bihar court framed charges against Shahabuddin and seven others in connection with journalist Rajdev Ranjan's murder case.
