SC maintains Subrata Roy will go to jail, directs him to surrender by Sept 30
The court granted Roy time till September 30 to surrender. The court however agreed to hear the application filed by Roy on September 28 and maintained that no arrest shall be carried out till then.
Earlier today the Supreme Court ordered that Roy be sent back to the Tihar jail in Delhi. It is better you go back to jail the bench said while cancelling the interim parole arrangement.
While making submissions, counsel for SEBI informed the court that most of the properties mentioned in the list for auction had already been attached by the Income Tax Department. SEBI said that since these properties were attached it could not sell them.
While cancelling the interim arrangement, the SC observed that it was better he went back to jail.The court said, "you provide a list of properties which are already attached by the IT department. You do not cooperate and hence it is better you are back in jail, the court said while cancelling the interim arrangement of parole".
Following this order there was drama with Sahara's advocates apologizing to the Bench after one of its counsel was pulled up by the court for using harsh language. After considering the apology the Supreme Court allowed the Sahara chief, Subrata Roy to move a fresh bail application. The court however said that Roy will remain in jail until the bail application was heard.
The Supreme Court took strong exception to the manner in which Sahara's counsel Rajeev Dhawan advanced arguments. The bench headed by Chief Justice of India, T S Thakur while coming down heavily on the manner in which Dhawan addressed the court said that some play with the dignity of the court.
