The Supreme Court Wednesday directed the Sahara group to furnish details of all its properties in a sealed cover to ascertain whether the group could repay the entire amount to the investors.

“We should know about the total assets of the Sahara group. What exactly is the extent of properties, we must know. Currently, 66 properties of the group are scheduled to go on sale which will generate around Rs 6,000 crore. This might be enough for securing Roy’s bail but not to refund the entire money to investors. We want the rest of the properties to be brought into focus so you give us a list of properties,” a bench led by Chief Justice T S Thakur said. The bench, however, refused to grant parole to Sahara chief Subrata Roy, saying so far its orders have not been complied with substantially.
