Promoter of RK Jewelers Rajendra Kumar Shakya, an accused in 33 kilograms gold smuggling case, has been released on bail on Thursday.

The Biratnagar High Court released him on bail of Rs 1 million.

The issue of 33 kilograms of gold smuggled through the Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) on January 23 came to the fore after the body of Sanam Shakya of Urlabari, who died while being tortured on charge of stealing that gold, was recovered in Biratnagar on March 2.
