New Delhi: Ever since the declassified files pertaining to Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s disappearance was released, there have been inundations of speculation revolving around his untimely demise. The seventh batch of 25 declassified files released on Tuesday revealed that Bose might've been assassinated by British intelligence agency.

The Special Operation Committee (SOE) of the British intelligence agency had conspired to assassinate Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, says an Irish historian. The SOE had allegedly ordered its agents in Istanbul and Cairo to capture and incapacitate Bose because they were threatened by the prospect of Netaji's advance.

Other revelations in the file also talked about how India had agreed to share with Pakistan the funds of Indian National Army (INA) and Indian Independence League (IIL) in 1953.

Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose abruptly disappeared 70 years ago where it was claimed that Netaji's plane had crashed in Taipei. Since then, speculations have been rife about Netaji surviving the crash and living as a hermit somewhere in India. The strongest speculation currently is the assassination of Bose whose advance into the Far East was seen as a threat.
