Mohammad Shahabuddin goes to Delhi’s Tihar jail: A look at the infamous inmates of the prison

The Supreme Court has ordered the Bihar government to move Rashtriya Janata Dal’s Mohammad Shahabuddin to Delhi’s Tihar jail for a free and fair trial. The four-time MP from Siwan was lodged in Bihar’s Siwan jail after the Supreme Court cancelled his bail granted by the Patna high court last year in connection with the killing of the prime witness in the murder of two brothers by pouring acid on them. The 50-year-old gangster-turned-politician has 45 criminal cases filed against him. As Shahabuddin joins the ranks of high-profile prisoners in Delhi’s Tihar, here’s a look at the who’s who of the jail.
