New Delhi: The mystery over the existence of Gumnami Baba, rumoured to be Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, living incognito in Uttar Pradesh's Faizabad district, turned deeper on Tuesday when old photographs of the Bose family were recovered from the district treasury.

Shakti Singh who is also a special invitee to the committee formed for recovering and cross-verification of Gumnami Baba's artefacts said "The family photograph of the Bose family shows 22 members besides his parents."
