99 days after Republic TV exposed Lalu-Shahabuddin tapes, RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav had admitted to speaking to gangster Shahbuddin while he was in jail. In the recordings, it could be clearly heard that Yadav is taking instructions about police deployment from Shahabuddin.
Lalu Prasad Yadav accepted that Shahabuddin called him from jail about Siwan and Gopalganj riots with him over the phone.
