Supreme Court today refused to stay the auction of Amby Valley property of business conglomerate Sahara. A bench of the Apex Court, headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra passed the order.
Sahara had sought the Apex Court's intervention and a direction to stay the auction of its Amby Valley property.
In its order, Supreme Court said, we are of the convinced opinion that grant of further time to the respondent and entertaining post-dated cheques which are dated 11th November, 2017, would tantamount to travesty of justice and extending unwarranted sympathy to a person who is an abuser of the process of law. The apex court made it clear that the auction (of Aamby Valley) shall be held as per the direction earlier given by the Court. In the order, the Apex Court further said that those who think or for that matter harbour the notion that they can play with law, are under wrong impression. The Top Court, while refusing to stay the auction of Amby Valley property, quote a phrase "it is not a laboratory where children come to play". We are constrained to state that the respondent in his own way has treated this Court as a laboratory, possibly thinking that he can survive on the ventilator as long as he can.
