Feb 28, 2014-
Sahara chief Subrata Roy has been sent to police custody on Friday by the chief judicial magistrate Anand Kumar Yadav's court till March 4.
Earlier in the day, amid high security, Roy was taken to the court from Sahara Sahar by Uttar Pradesh Police, several hours after he "surrendered" and was arrested at his home.
Roy pleaded before court to be allowed to stay at home.
His convoy exited at about 5.15pm from the rear gate to give a slip to the large number of mediapersons who had been camping there since Friday morning.
There was heavy deployment of police force and Provincial Armed Constabulary personnel at the main gate of the Sahara Sahar.
Roy was arrested in the morning after having evaded for two days a non-bailable warrant issued by the Supreme Court for his failure to appear before it in a case of non-refund of Rs 20,000 crore to investors.
