The official liquidator of the court to take the help of the Receiver and ensure that the property is auctioned, said the bench in the order which came after hearing market regulator Sebi’s plea seeking contempt action against the Sahara group for allegedly obstructing the auctioning process of Aamby Valley.

Earlier, the top court had directed the auction of Aamby valley to recover money that the Sahara group has to pay to the market regulator SEBI for returning investors money that its two companies SIRECL and SHICL had raised from investors in 2007 and 2008.
