The old parents of two youth — for whose murder former MP Mohammad Shahabuddin and three others were on Friday awarded life imprisonment by a Siwan court — expressed dissatisfaction over the verdict and demanded death sentence for the politician.

“We are not happy with the court’s verdict; it has disappointed us. We want death penalty for Shahabuddin and three others who kidnapped and then murdered our two sons,” Chandrakeshwar Prasad and his wife Kalawati Devi told the media.

Shahabuddin and three others had doused the two brothers, Girish Raj and Satish Raj, in acid in 2004 before murdering them.

“We respect the court but it is not justice. We hope to get justice in god’s court,” Prasad added.

Prasad demanded more security for the couple after the court verdict.
