India to initiate fresh moves to bring Davy to justice

Kim Davy
New Delhi, Aug 4: India will soon be sending a fresh proposal to Denmark seeking a trial of Purulia arms drop case accused Kim Davy through video conferencing from Danish capital Copenhagen and getting his deposition before a team of officials is sent from here.

CBI, probing the case, will take a legal opinion on the matter soon but the agency is open to trial through video conferencing from Copenhagen as the Danish High Court had in a verdict turned down its plea of extraditing Davy, official sources said.

The decision to seek trial by video conferencing was arrived after a through review meeting between CBI and the Home Ministry, after which the proposal of getting Davy deposition by sending a team of officials from here was agreed upon, the sources said.

The Home Ministry has asked CBI to get legal opinion on the future course of action so that Davy's extradition matter could be pursued through diplomatic channels.

The Danish government had accepted India's request for extraditing Davy but it was challenged by the Purulia arms drop accused in the city court in Copenhangen. The Danish court rejected the plea of Danish Government which was also upheld by the High Court.

The High Court rejected the extradition of Davy citing poor prison conditions, including overcrowding, torture and human rights record of India.
