Jailed Sahara chief Subrata Roy has sought immediate restoration of all the facilities like use of an air-conditioned office, phone, internet and video-conferencing in the Tihar prison to complete negotiations for sale of his luxury hotels abroad.

In a letter to Tihar authorities, Roy said 80 per cent of the negotiations were over to sell his hotels in London and New York and withdrawal of the facilities on September 30 may result in lapse of the deal.

The Sahara chief has also sought special security, saying he faces threat inside jail premises.

On October 1, Roy was sent back to his cell in Tihar at the end of the period granted by the Supreme Court for stay at the air-conditioned facility in the complex to negotiate sale of his overseas hotels.

“Subrata Roy in a letter has requested continuation of special services provided to him. He has been sent back to the cell on October 1 as the period granted by the Supreme Court to stay in the air-conditioned facility ended,” senior jail officials informed.

They said the facility can be further extended only after directions from the court.

      He should be given this much leverage. This is a multi crore deal and it certainly takes time to sell such costly properties.

        Ahem ahem!!!He should have thought again and again before cheating the micro investors.The law of "republic of India" stands equal for each and every citizen of this nation regardless of how rich, successful, well connected and influential they are.We must stand by the consution of India (which advocates equality and justice for every citizen) instead of standing by a moron who cheated his faithful investors.

          Subrata roy has only requested that he wants to use jail facilities to complete his deal which is understandable taking time. He is not running away anywhere, he will still be in jail only. Then why not give him the facilities. We should look at a solution.

            Subrata Roy should be given a vast piece of land and rather construct a big mansion inside the Tihar Jail, just like his Lucknow palace. The Tihar Jail authorities should also allow him to start Chit Fund inside the jail and he should be allowed to collect money from all Tihar Jail inmates. Tihar Jail authorities should make it compulsory for all inmates and all Jail officials that all of them should do Sahara Praname to Shri. Shri. Subrata Sahara Roy the great...Kris
