Shahabuddin report rocks Assembly

Patna, Dec. 15: The second day of the Bihar Assembly’s winter session was adjourned today on a noisy note within 10 minutes of its opening with the entire Opposition rallying together, demanding the report on Mohammad Shahabuddin be made public.

The state’s ousted director-general of police, D.P. Ojha, had submitted a detailed report to the government on the criminal activities of Shahabuddin, the Rashtriya Janata Dal MP from Siwan who was arrested and jailed in August.

The report, leaked by a private cable channel, also mentions Shahabuddin’s alleged involvement with underworld don Dawood Ibrahim and the Inter-Services Intelligence of Pakistan.

After today’s adjournment, the House might witness more such uproarious scenes with the Opposition NDA deciding to bring a no-confidence motion against the Rabri Devi government tomorrow.

“We have decided to take the twin issues of breakdown of law and order and underdevelopment by bringing a no-confidence motion against the Rabri government,” Opposition leader Sushil Kumar Modi said.
