Delhi heat makes Roy ask SC for early release

Feeling the summer heat in the Tihar jail here, Sahara group head Subrata Roy on Wednesday urged the Supreme Court to pass an early order on a writ petition challenging his judicial custody, saying that he had become unwell due to weather conditions in the capital.

Roy was incarcerated on March 4 for non-compliance of an apex court order directing him to pay back Rs 20,000 crore of investors’ money.

A bench of justices K S Radhakrishnan and J S Khehar took note of the submission made by senior advocate Rajiv Dhawan on behalf of Roy, after it concluded its hearing on the ink-throwing incident that took place on March 4 on the Supreme Court premises. The court on April 21 reserved its order on Roy’s petition challenging its decision to send him to jail in the case relating to non-refund of investors money.
