Relating to the mystery behind the death of Subhash Chandra Bose, a UK website has set up a catalogue, ‘The Last Days of Subhash Chandra Bose’ and have released evidence given by a Taiwanese official claiming to have prepared Netajis body for cremation after his death in a plane crash in 1945.
The Taiwanese official, Tan Ti-Ti, who was in-charge of issuing cremation documents and permits in Taipei, together with that of other local other officials, performed Netaji’s last rites in Taiwan.
The catalogue has also mentioned the time at which the application for the cremation permit was made and the condition under which the body was brought.
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had declassified some of Netaji’s files in September last year and it is expected that the Central government will also be declassifying more of his files. This revelation has also questioned the challenges and assumptions about Netaji’s death to some extent, putting the rest of the controversy in doubt. It has also questioned Netajis family’s viewpoint on the mystery revolving around Netaji’s death. The family feels that the whole truth about the death of Bose has not yet been revealed.
