August 15 had a reference during the Supreme Court hearing of the Sahara case Friday. The court allowed shifting Subrata Roy from a prison cell to a conference room in Delhi’s Tihar Jail complex for 10 days to facilitate business negotiations so as to arrange Rs 10,000 crore for bail. As the deadline of this limited freedom expires around August 15, the Independence Day, the bench casually remarked if the date may bring independence for Roy as well. “Let us see if they can also earn their freedom by August 15,” said the bench in a lighter vein.
