A special court has denied bail to a superintendent of the Central Excise department at Sonepat in Haryana, arrested in connection with theft of gold from the department’s vaults at the Indira Gandhi International Airport here.

Special Judge Rakesh Pandit denied the relief to Sanjiv Kumar, saying he might hamper the ongoing probe which is at a crucial stage.

Kumar was earlier denied relief from a magisterial court which had said that the stage was not right for bail.

The CBI had alleged that around 125 kg of gold, seized by the customs department over three decades, had been pilfered from the vaults of the department.

In its order, the court noted the submissions of public prosecutor Shampa Tikait that if released on bail, the accused might flee from justice.
