The Bihar police lodged another first information report againstabsconding Rashtriya Janata Dal member of Parliament Mohammed Shahabuddin in a case related to a law degree examinationhe appeared for,despite a nationwide alert for his arrest.

Deputy Inspector General of police (Thirhut range) Gupteshwar Pandey, on Sunday said a FIR was registeredagainst Shahabuddin and 10 others including theprincipal of the local RDS College Mohammad Tauheed Alam andB R Ambedkar University examination controller Upendra Mishra.

A day after Shahabuddin reportedly appeared for a law degree examination despite a nationwide alert for his arrest, Bihar DGP A R SinhaonSaturday ordered an inquiry into the incident and sought a reporton the matterfromSunit Kumar,inspector general police .

After the local media reported that Shahabuddin had appeared for his LLB examination conducted by Bihar University at Muzaffarpur, it created panic among the police.

It was reported by the local media that Shahabuddin had appeared in the second year LLB examination in Muzaffarpur's RDS College Thursday as a candidate from S K Memorial Silver Jubilee Law College, Muzaffarpur.
