Former Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) MP Mohd Shahabuddin on Friday said that he is not worried about the plea filed in Supreme Court by the Bihar Governnment against bail granted to him by Patna High Court.

He said: "I haven't received any notice yet, but I am not worried about anything at all."

Earlier on the day, the Bihar government moved the apex court for cancellation of the bail granted to Shahabuddin by the Patna High Court.

A Siwan native, Chandrakeshwar Prasad, has also filed a plea in the Supreme Court, challenging bail given to Shahabuddin.

He has alleged that three of his sons were murdered by the RJD strongman.

Later, the apex court agreed to hear on Monday a plea seeking cancellation of bail to Shahabuddin.

The former RJD MP was released on bail earlier this week by the Patna High Court.

The bail granted to murder convict Shahabuddin by the Patna High Court has prompted the BJP-led opposition to accuse the Nitish government of deliberately putting up a weak case to facilitate his bail.

Asserting the government's supremacy in the Shahabuddin issue, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said on Thursday that law will take its course in the matter.

"There is a process of law. All I will tell you is that the law will continue to take its course," he told reporters in Delhi on Thursday.
