Lucknow, Mar 3: Sahara chief Subrata Roy was on Monday taken by road to New Delhi for production by 2 PM on Tuesday before the Supreme Court which had issued a non-bailable warrant against him in a case of alleged contempt.

"Roy has been taken to Delhi by road by the police..", SP, Trans Gomti, Habibul Hasan told PTI after the 65-year-old Sahara chief left in a cavalcade of police cars.

Asked about the route by which he would be taken to Delhi, Hasan said probably he would be taken through Kanpur. Roy surrendered on Friday last and was arrested by the police which he had evaded for two days.

The Supreme Court had ordered his arrest after he failed to appear before the court in a contempt case for non-appearance before it.

The Sahara chief was lodged in a guest house of the state forest department at Kukrail here after the state police was directed by a local court on February 28 to keep him in its custody till March 4 when he will be produced before the Supreme Court.

Chief Judicial Magistrate Anand Kumar Yadav had directed the UP police to keep him in custody till 2 PM on March 4 and ensure that he is by then produced before the apex court.

Police had moved an application before the CJM seeking Roy's custody instead of transit remand and his counsel V K Shahi also did not oppose it.

The order to arrest Roy was issued on February 26 for his failure to appear before the apex court in a contempt case arising out of non refund of Rs 20,000 crore to investors by two of his companies.
