Citibank fraud: Sanjeev Gupta denied bail

A Gurgaon court on Saturday rejected a review petition for bail of Sanjay Gupta, former associate vice-president of Hero Corporate Services and one of the co-accused in the Rs. 400 crore Citibank fraud case. This was Gupta’s sixth attempt to secure bail.

The bail was rejected on the ground that the accusations against him were “quite grave” and “more than 100 witnesses are still to be examined by the prosecution.”

Gupta was arrested in January 2011 for allegedly conniving with Shivraj Puri, the main accused in the case, who had conned several Citibank customers.
