New Delhi, May. 6: The Supreme Court on Friday allowed a break safeguard for four weeks to Sahara boss Subrata Roy to perform the last rituals of his mom.
Roy, who was in Tihar Jail in Delhi since March 2014, has been permitted to leave jail for the burial service of his mom Chhabi Roy, who kicked the bucket at the beginning of today.
A three-part summit court seat headed by Chief Justice T.S. Thakur allowed parole to Roy on compassionate grounds, saying “a mother’s affection is such that it levels in death”.
Roy, 67, was captured after the gathering neglected to follow a court request to discount cash raised from a large number of little speculators by offering them bonds later managed to be illicit. His safeguard had been set at Rs. 10,000 crores by the Supreme Court in prior hearings. The Sahara bunch has neglected to raise that cash.
The court said plainclothesmen would be with Roy while he is out on parole.
