The Supreme Court today extended Sahara chief Subrata Roy's parole till 28 November, after Sahara deposited Rs 200 crore today and said it will deposit another Rs 200 crore by November end.

The apex court had earlier extended the interim parole of Roy till 24 October and had asked him to deposit Rs 200 crore within that time.

On 23 September, the apex court had ordered that Roy should be taken into custody till 3 October, but in a reprieve stayed his arrest till 30 September.

A two-judge bench headed by Chief Justice TS Thakur passed the order after hearing an application filed by Kapil Sibal, the lawyer appearing for Roy. Sibal sought a reprieve for Roy on the ground that he would follow all rules and regulations.

Roy has been out on parole since May after serving a two-year term in Delhi's Tihar Jail to perform his mother's last rites.
