While the PMO has declassified a 100 Netaji files, the mystery over Netaji’s disappearance is far from being resolved, but many are now demanding an SIT to investigate whether snooping on the family was part of a conspiracy. Many also feel the need to re-write Netaji’s legacy given that we are yet to conclude on whether Netaji died in air crash in 1945.
Modi released digital copies of some of the files in presence of family members of the late freedom fighter. File 2 of the declassified files contains material on disappearance and death of Bose. Letters signed by Nehru and a cabinet note proposing to bring remains from Japan to India were also released on the occasion.
