New Delhi, Jul 1: The CPI(M) on Thursday demanded that the Government appeal against a Denmark court order refusing extradition of Purulia arms drop case mastermind Kim Davy to India.

"CBI's utter failure in the Denmark high court points to the total negligence and callous attitude of CBI and the Government and really it does raise serious questions about whether the Government is serious to get us to the truth," CPI(M) leader Brinda Karat said.

Speaking to reporters, she said given the sensitivity of the case and in wake of new evidence emerging in recent times, her party had demanded another enquiry during the assembly elections, but "unfortunately the Prime Minister did not think it fit to do so."

"They (CBI) should certainly appeal against it and go to whatever extend they can to convince judiciary in Denmark about the strength of this case," she said.

The Eastern High Court in Copenhagen dismissed the Danish government's plea today to allow 49-year-old Davy, who is also known as Niels Holck, to be handed over to CBI in connection with the 1995 Purulia case on the grounds "of jail conditions and human rights issues" in India.

The new Union Home Secretary R K Singh also said the verdict will be challenged in the Danish Supreme Court. Singh however said it is not a "setback" for India.
