New Delhi, May 6: After the media circus following scandalous allegations by the key accused in the Purulia Arms drop case, Kim Davy, the government has decided to take the allegations seriously and has constituted a two-member team consisting of a CBI officer and a lawyer. They will travel to Denmark seeking the expedition of Kim Davy, who is considered the prime accused in the case.

A senior government official commented, “The team comprising a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) officer and a lawyer will leave for Denmark either on May 14 or May 16. It will go with all available evidence that substantiates Davy's involvement in the crime."

Davy had ignited the controversy when he revealed to a popular English news channel that the Narasimha Rao government had used him against the ruling Left government to weaken their position and to arm the locals. He also claimed that India's external intelligence agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) had worked hand in glove with its British counterpart MI-5 with the complete knowledge of the Centre.

The Centre rubbished the allegations and claimed that they were diversionary tactics to slow down the process of extradition. The Denmark government, however, stressed that Davy should not be awarded death sentence which was agreed to by the Indian counterpart. The CBI had earlier claimed that they had "clinching" evidence against Davy's alleged "act of terror" and is working towards his extradition to face trial in India.
