Sahara boss Subrata Roy sent to police custody till March 4

Sahara chief Subrata Roy pleaded before the court to be allowed to stay at home, which was denied.
NEW DELHI/LUCKNOW: Sahara chief Subrata Roy has been sent to police custody on Friday by the chief judicial magistrate Anand Kumar Yadav's court till March 4. Earlier in the day, amid high security, Roy was taken to the court from Sahara Sahar by Uttar Pradesh Police, several hours after he "surrendered" and was arrested at his home.

Roy pleaded before court to be allowed to stay at home.

His convoy exited at about 5.15pm from the rear gate to give a slip to the large number of media persons who had been camping there since Friday morning.

There was heavy deployment of police force and Provincial Armed Constabulary personnel at the main gate of the Sahara Sahar.

Roy was arrested in the morning after having evaded for two days a non-bailable warrant issued by the Supreme Court for his failure to appear before it in a case of non-refund of Rs 20,000 crore to investors.

  1. The reason is still not clear why Mr Roy was put in jail and why he is still in jail even after no proper proof. Was it for he didn't appear in the court when notified or for the refund to the investors? Now EPFO is unnecessarily jumping in the puzzle for compliance review.

  2. First of all how can anyone can be behind the bars without proven guilty? Even after this the authorities want to run behind a man claiming employee's provident fund defaults. Is this the way people are treated in India?
