Subrata Roy, the revered chief of Sahara Group, breathed his last on Tuesday at the age of 75, succumbing to a cardiorespiratory arrest after a prolonged illness, as confirmed by the company’s official statement.

The demise of Subrata Roy marks the end of an era for the Sahara Group. Despite the legal challenges and controversies, Roy’s leadership played a pivotal role in shaping the conglomerate. As the Sahara Group grieves the loss of its chief, attention now turns to the future leadership of the company and the resolution of ongoing legal matters.
