New Delhi: Former Rashtriya Janata Dal MP Mohammad Shahabuddin died due to corona sufferings at a hospital in Delhi. Shahabuddin who was serving a life sentence for murder, passed away aged 53. 

Around three days before Delhi High Court directed the AAP government and the prison authority to ensure proper medical supervision and care of Shahabuddin. Now, he has been declared dead because of coronavirus complications. Justice Prathiba M Singh had said the doctor on duty for looking after COVID-19 patients shall monitor Shahabuddin’s health condition and treatment. The court had also directed that the former RJD MP be permitted to speak to a family member twice a day. The Bihar leader, in his plea, had said that he apprehended that he would not get the proper treatment as there was a scarcity of oxygen and other medicines in Delhi. He had also alleged that he was apprehending the mismanagement of his health situation at the hands of the doctors at the behest of the opposite political leaders in Delhi.
