█(01)►What did File No 12(226)56-PM contain? This crucial file that had papers relating to the investigations leading to the circumstances leading to the death of Subhas Chandra Bose, was destroyed in “routine course” by the government.
█(02)►This is one of the revelation from the 27 files relating to Subhas Chandra Bose that were disclosed on Friday by the government.
█(03)►That the crucial PMO file had been destroyed came to light when the Justice Mukherjee commission inquiring about the disappearance of Netaji sought this file in 2001. The Prime Minister’s Office told the commission – after searching – that the file had been weeded out in routine course in 1972 but the summary contents of file could be found in the Cabinet Secretariat. This was because the file had contained agenda papers and cabinet decisions which were stored.
█(04)►But the deputy secretary of the Cabinet Secretariat when asked said that “this organisation have no record relating to the contents of the file as it was formed only on September 21, 1968.’
█(05)►The Mukherjee commission noted in its report that the availability of the file would have helped it arrive at the truth. But it was not merely the non- availability of this document alone that hampered the Mukherjee commission.
█(06)►The Commission had also sought ‘contemporary official records’ relating to Subhas Bose that were referred to by then Prime Minister Morarji Desai in the course of a call attention motion in Lok Sabha on 28 August 1978. Mr Desai replying to the debate said” some further contemporary official records have also become available and in the light of these doubts and contradictions and these records, Government find it difficult to accept the earlier conclusions as decisive.”
█(07)►Mr Desai was referring to the findings of the Shah Nawaz Committee (1956) and the Khosla Commission (1970) which had conclusively stated that Subhas Bose had perished on August 18, 1945 in the air crash in Taipei.
█(08)►Needless to add the government were unable to find the documents that Desai referred to and the Joint Secretary in the PMO told the committee that the papers related to letters by non- government personalities and old newspaper reports !
So the real corruption and deception to India started from Nehru era, not Indira era as it was originally believed !!!Girish
Interestingly the government was also unable to provide the Mukherjee commission all the records of the previous Khosla Commission of inquiry. The government told the Mukherjee commission that “some records of the Khosla commission could not be retrieved in spite of vigorous attempts and cannot be supplied to the commission for scrutiny.”
█(10)►The particular file which this information can be gleaned is Secret Ministry of Home Affairs file of 2005 that is in the latest declassified list.
