New Delhi: India will soon be sending a fresh
proposal to Denmark seeking a trial of Purulia arms drop case
accused Kim Davy through video conferencing from Danish
capital Copenhagen and getting his deposition before a team of
officials is sent from here.
CBI, probing the case, will take a legal opinion on the
matter soon but the agency is open to trial through video
conferencing from Copenhagen as the Danish High Court had in a
verdict turned down its plea of extraditing Davy, official
The decision to seek trial by video conferencing was
arrived after a thorough review meeting between CBI and the
Home Ministry, after which the proposal of getting Davy
deposition by sending a team of officials from here was
agreed upon, the sources said.
The Home Ministry has asked CBI to get legal opinion
on the future course of action so that Davy`s extradition
matter could be pursued through diplomatic channels.
The Danish government had accepted India`s request for
extraditing Davy but it was challenged by the Purulia arms
drop accused in the city court in Copenhangen. The Danish
court rejected the plea of Danish Government which was also
upheld by the High Court.
The High Court rejected the extradition of Davy citing
poor prison conditions, including overcrowding, torture and
human rights record of India.
