Subrata Roy got relief from Supreme Court, order to produce him in Patna High Court stayed
New Delhi. The Supreme Court on Friday stayed the order issued to the police to produce ‘Sahara India’ chief Subrata Roy in the Patna High Court.
Justice A. A bench headed by M. Khanwilkar also passed an order staying further proceedings against Subrata Roy in the matter.
After hearing Subrata Roy’s plea challenging the High Court order, the bench said, “At this stage we stay the Patna High Court order.”
The order was passed by the Patna High Court today itself after hearing over 2,000 cases related to alleged frauds by Sahara India. Sahara India is accused of not returning the money of thousands of investors.
When Subrata Roy did not appear in the court despite clear orders of the High Court, the court had ordered Bihar, Uttar Pradesh and Delhi Police to ensure his appearance in the High Court on May 13.
Subrata Roy challenged the May 13 order of the Patna High Court in the apex court.
