Roy then appealed to the SC to consider the future of 12 lakh employees of Sahara Group, and also claimed that he never had a blot on him in his 37-year-long career.
Roy's lawyer Ram Jethmalani assured the SC that his client will refund the money in two months time. Then Roy proposed that Sahara will sell its assets to repay the amount to the investors. But the court snubbed him saying, "We are not interested in selling the properties, you have been telling us for the last 2 years, it is your headache, you should have done it," reported IBN Live.
While seeking more time to refund the money to the investors, he assured the SC that he will abide with the SC's orders this time, and said, "I have faith in you. Punish me if I don't comply with your order."
Meanwhile some chaotic scenes were also witnessed when Roy was brought to the court. A man in his mid 30s from Gwalior threw black ink on his face calling him (Roy) a 'theif'. The ink attacker was identified as Manoj Sharma who was a lawyer from Gwalior.
According to Times Now, Manoj Sharma is also the same man who in April 2011 tried to hit Suresh Kalmadi with a slipper.
The Uttar Pradesh security personal, in whose custody Roy had been since Friday, presented him before a bench of Justices K S Radhakrishnan and J S Khehar at 2 pm. The security personnel even ordered temporary closure of one of the two entry gates of the court at around 1 pm, to ensure smooth entry of Roy.
