Bihar administration sounded a nationwide alert on Tuesday for execution of non-bailable warrants of arrest, pending against the elusive Rashtriya Janata Dal member of Parliament Mohammad Shahabuddin.

Countrywide alert for Shahabuddin's arrest sought

Director General of Poice Ashish Ranjan Sinha told reporters that police of all states had been alerted to arrest Shahabuddin wherever he was sighted.

"We have also asked the airport authorities to inform the police immediately if the RJD MP is seen there," he said, adding that immigration authorities had also being approached to prevent Shahabuddin from flying out of the country.

Earlier, Home Secretary A K Biswas forwarded the letter from Siwan District Magistrate Santosh Kumar Mal and Police Superintendent Sanjay Singh requesting him and the director general of police to alert police across the country, to Chief Secretary G S Kang, who subsequently approved it.

Police team sent to Delhi to arrest Shahabuddin

Copies of the arrest warrants against the RJD MP were being faxed to the director generals of police and home secretaries of all the states seeking their help for arresting Shahabuddin, official sources said.

The district magistrate and Siwan police superintendent had on Monday strongly recommended issuing of a nation-wide alert to arrest Shahabuddin after a police team from the district, camping in Delhi, failed to locate the MP there.

The warrants had been issued in cases relating to recovery of illegal firearms, ammunition of Pakistan make, unaccounted foreign currency, a deer and photographs of the MP and his men with a hunted deer from his Pratappur premises during a raid on April 24.
