A lawyer threw ink at the Sahara chief Subrata Roy Tuesday outside the Supreme Court premises here.

Manoj Sharma, who claimed to be an advocate from Gwalior, threw ink at Roy as the latter got out of a car and was heading towards the court amid security personnel and a large number of mediapersons.

"I threw ink at Subrata Roy as he is a thief and has robbed the poor," Sharma shouted, after which he was hurriedly taken away by police.

Roy was brought to Delhi Monday after he was arrested by the Lucknow police on February 28.

The apex court on February 26 had issued a non-bailable arrest warrant against Roy for failing to appear before it in person as directed by the court.

The court had issued non-bailable warrant against Roy after he failed to appear before it on February 26.

Roy had sought exemption from personal appearance on the ground of ill-health of his 92-year-old mother.

The Sahara chief had on February 27 approached the apex court tendering an "unconditional apology" for his non-appearance in the contempt case and had sought recall of the NBW. The plea was declined by the court.

The three directors of Sahara Group, who were also summoned along with Roy, had appeared in the court.

The court had on February 20 come down heavily on the Sahara group for not refunding the investors' money despite its order and summoned Roy, Ravi Shankar Dubey, Ashok Roy Choudhary and Vandana Bhargava, directors of its firms Sahara India Real Estate Corp Ltd (SIREC) and Sahara India Housing Investment Corp Ltd (SHIC) to be personally present before it.
