Siwan: Soon after receiving directives from IG ( Prisons) Anand Kishore regarding probe into jailed former RJD MP from Siwan Mohd. Shahabuddin’s pic going viral on social media, Siwan DM Mahendra Kumar constituted a team comprising SDO Bhupendra Kumar and ASP Kartikeya Sharma to probe the matter.
Siwan DM said that a team has been constituted and IG( Prisons) would get detailed information about it once the team submits its report. He said that the team would investigate whether the pic that has gone viral on social media is a new one or an old picture of the former MP. The team would also probe how a cellphone entered the divisional jail and reached the former MP, the DM said adding that the team would also quiz the jail superintendent.
It may be mentioned here that on January 6, Siwan divisional jail was searched by the cops and they found cellpjones besides four sim cards from the possession of the jail birds. After this recovery, the pic of Shahabuddin in new look went viral on social media. One of the pics also shows a selfie taken by the former MP.Earlier, in 2016 a pic had gone t viral on social media showing a minister with the former MP inside the jail.
If police officers earlier posted in Siwan district are to be believed, this is nothing new for Siwan jail. Earlier too, several DMs including Santosh Kumar Mal and Vandana Preyashi during their tenure had raided Siwan jail and seized cellphones, chargers besides sim cards from the jail birds.
