Subrata Roy moved back to jail, special facilities withdrawn
Tihar Jail DIG said the shifting was done around 11 AM amid heavy security.

New Delhi: Sahara chief Subrata Roy on Wednesday was sent back to his cell in Tihar jail at the end of the period granted by the Supreme Court to stay at an air conditioned facility in the complex to negotiate sale of his overseas luxury hotels.

The court had extended Roy's stay at the Tihar Jail conference room by 15 days on September 8 for him to sell the properties to raise Rs 10,000 crore to be deposited with SEBI for his bail.

"We received no further extension orders from the court and the duration for which Subrata Roy was allowed to use the conference room with special facilities ended on Tuesday. He has been shifted back to the jail today. He will be staying at the central jail here in jail number one," Tihar jail DIG Mukesh Prasad said.

Prasad said the shifting was done around 11 AM amid heavy security.

"Both his directors and Roy will stay together in the Central jail here with no special facility available to them any more. Any further directions on the matter from the court are awaited," he said.

The Supreme Court, on August 1 had allowed Roy and two of his group directors to use the fully air-conditioned conference room in Tihar jail complex for 10 days from August 5, within a given time lot of 6:00 am to 8:00 pm.

The meetings held by the group under the surveillance of CCTV cameras.

Roy, 65, was using the conference room with services like Wi-Fi and video-conferencing. He was allowed two laptops, two desktops, landline phones with STD/ISD facilities and a mobile phone.

Two secretarial and one technical person were also allowed to assist him. Roy has been lodged in Tihar Jail since March 4 in 2014.
