A case was going on in Patna High Court against Subroto Roy
A case is pending in the Patna High Court against Sahara India for not paying people’s money for many years. People invested this money in many schemes of the company, but later Sahasree got a big relief from the Supreme Court in this matter. Last year, the Supreme Court immediately stayed the arrest order of the Patna High Court.
The Supreme Court gave this order
The court ordered that status quo be maintained on any further proceedings against Subroto Roy. Subroto Roy was out on bail in the case. At the same time, Sahara India claimed to have deposited the amount with SEBI to return the money to the investors.
