A team of CBI officials landed in Copenhagen to secure the extradition of Kim Davy with an expired warrant. The warrant that was issued by a Kolkata court in October 2010 had expired on Jan 3, 2011.
The most embarrassing part of it was that it was pointed out to the officials by Kim Davy's lawyers.
The CBL claimed it as an oversight and has now filed a petition in the court to get the warrant's validity extended till August 20.
It can be recalled that the Purulia arms drop case was an incident in which unauthorised arms were dropped from an Antonov An-26 aircraft in Purulia district of West Bengal on 17 December 1995.
In an interview to Times Now in April 2011, Davy alleged that the then P V Narasimha Rao government had plotted the entire operation to destabilise the Communist government in West Bengal by arming locals in the state.
