New Delhi, Jun 30: The Danish High Court may pronounce verdict on Thursday, jun 30 on the extradition of Kim Davy in connection with Purulia arms drop case.

The Danish government had allowed the extradition of Davy after getting a number of assurances from India with two important ones being that no death penalty would be given to him and permission to serve imprisonment, if decided by court, in Denmark prisons.

The order was challenged by Davy in a Danish court which ruled in his favour. The Danish government had appealed against the order before a five-judge bench of the High Court which had reserved its decision.

"He has not been contesting evidence or the investigation done by CBI. Rather he has, on several occasions, largely admitted his role in Purulia arms drop case in the Danish court as also in the media, including Indian media. His arguments in courts focussed mainly on alleged poor prison conditions and human rights issues in India," CBI spokesperson Dharini Mishra said here.

Since the Danish government is defending its decision, CBI is not a party in the case but a team was sent to "assist" the prosecution with facts and Indian laws.

"The verdict tomorrow may not be the final one in the case. There are chances of further appeal in the Supreme Court of Denmark for both the parties after this verdict. Generally, two weeks time is given for such appeal in Danish legal system," she said.
