It’s time to unmask the mystery. It was a major security breach which had happened in 1995 during the Narasimha Rao led Congress government
The Purulia arms drop case refers to an incident that occurred on 17 December 1995 in which unauthorised arms were dropped from an Antonov An-26 aircraft in Purulia district in West Bengal. The arms dropped included a very large consignment of AK47 rifles and around a million round of ammunition scattered over four villages in the district. It is considered to be one of the biggest security breaches in Indian History.
The aircraft reappeared in the Indian airspace within days, it was forced to land and its crew comprising five Latvian citizens and a British mercenary, Peter Bleach, was arrested and sentenced to life imprisonment. But the chief accused, a Danish citizen named Niels Hock aka Kim Davy escaped arrest and was able to ship himself out of India.
The chief accused “Kim Davy” claimed that it was a conspiracy of the Congress government to overthrow the communist party in West Bengal. He also claims that the Narasimha Rao led central government assured his safety and return to Denmark. He further alleges that MP Pappu Yadav in association with the then Prime Minister of India facilitated his safe exit.
India has filed a fresh request to the Denmark Government to get back Kim Davy. So there is some progress in this case. So the then Congress govt who alleged involved in this is under the radar. India is constantly increasing its diplomatic pressure to get him back.
Diplomatic pressure to get Kim Davy back, Congress government under radar in the #PuruliaArmsDrop case
