CBI denies R&AW hand in Purulia case

The CBI said while investigating the case it seized a laptop belonging to the accused, “containing more than 50,000 pages” wherein Kim Davy has given elaborate details about his plan and preparation of the crime.

“This is clinching evidence against him,” the investigating agency said adding “nowhere has he mentioned any thing about any likely help from any Indian official agency.”
The CBI said all efforts are being made to extradite Davy to face trial in India “where he will have all the opportunity to put forth his version.” The issue of Davy’s extradition is before the high court of Denmark.

Davy has recently claimed that the British intelligence MI-5 and R&AW were in know of the plan to drop arms in India as well as the flight of the plane that carried the arms dropped in the forest area of Purulia, West Bengal, in 1995.

Investigation by the CBI in the Purulia arms dropping case did not indicate any government agency having helped Neils Holck alias Kim Davy in his crime “by way of commission or omission,” said the investigating agency.

“On the contrary, intelligence agencies helped the CBI in a big way to collect evidence against him and his co-accused persons. No evidence of any Indian politician helping him in his escape came to light,” the CBI said.

The CBI said Davy is attempting to portray this heinous crime as an act of self-defence to avoid his extradition.

Red Corner Notice against Kim Davy was issued in 1996 who has been traced in Copenhagen. Efforts have been made by the CBI to extradite him, but as there is no Extradition Treaty between India and Denmark, the process has taken time. The CBI said Denmark government is also convinced about Davy’s offences committed in India and had agreed to extradite him.
