The CBI wishes to write "the last chapter" of the Purulia arms drop case as the agency wants to know the name of a politician, if any, who had helped the main accused Kim Davy escape from Mumbai airport.

Source in the agency said the CBI is ready to probe the mysterious escape of Purulia arms drop case accused Kim Davy with the alleged help of a politician from Mumbai airport, if he gives details about him during his trial before Indian courts after his extradition from Denmark.

Sources in the agency said the "last chapter of this mystery will be written by Davy himself" as the CBI so far has not found involvement of any politician in the Purulia arms drop "conspiracy".

"The details about the escape can only be provided by Kim Davy. Let him come to India and say in the court whatever he is claiming through media interviews. Once he gives his statement in the court, we are ready to probe in every possible lead provided by him," a senior official of the agency said.

Davy, in a media interview, had alleged an MP from Bihar had helped him escape from the country to Denmark after his infamous air-dropping operation of sophisticated weapons in Purulia in West Bengal on the night of December 17, 1995.

A CBI team has recently returned from Denmark where a five-judge bench of the Danish High Court, first to be constituted since 1957, concluded hearing extradition case of Davy. The bench is likely to pronounce its decision in the case before the start of their summer vacations which begin some time in July.
