The Supreme Court will tomorrow deliver its verdict on Sahara Chief Subrata Roy’s petition challenging its decision to send him to jail for not complying with its order to deposit around Rs 20,000 crore of investors money with SEBI.

A bench of justices K S Radhakrishnan and J S Khehar, which had reserved its order on April 21, will pronounce the judgement.

It may also consider Sahara’s proposal for paying Rs 10,000 crore for getting bail to its chief Subrata Roy and two directors who are in Tihar jail in judicial custody since March 4.

The apex court had earlier imposed a condition that Roy will be freed on bail only if he pays Rs 10,000 crore out of which Rs 5,000 crore has to be in bank guarantee and rest Rs 5,000 crore in cash.
