August 06, 2008 19:00 IST
Jailed Rashtriya Janata Dal lawmaker Mohammed Shahabuddin was on Wednesday granted bail by Patna High Court in an Arms Act case.
Shahabuddin will, however, not be released as he is serving life sentence for abducting and murdering a CPI-ML activist Chotelal Gupta on May 7, 1999.
A special court had on May 8 last year convicted him of the crime and awarded life imprisonment. He was also awarded imprisonment for various durations in four other cases.
