The Japanese doctor at Taipei confirmed death and issued certificate in Netaji’s name ( in actual not in Netaji’s name bu in the name of a Japanese soldier). A long chart of different statements of Habibur Rehman is shown and gratitude expressed in writing for the guidance and information in making the same for Sunil Krishna Gupta ( a Confidant of Bhagwanji) is expressed.

11.Letter of Samar Guha shown dated 21/08/1990 addressed to PM,

( No such letter was received by PM as per records)

12.Dilip.M.Merchant, wrote to PM dated 05/09/1990 that,

a) Kolkata Times of India reported a report quoting Amiya Nath Bose that he got information from a Swedish diplomat in August 1990 that Netaji’s fate was sealed in Stalin’s Russia around 1947. Amiya was quoted saying that his late Father, Sarat Bose received info vi diplomatic channels in late 1940s that either Netaji was killed in Russia or imprisoned in concentration Camp in 1949
b) The report further say of American sources establishing escape of Netaji to Manchuria and there was no Air Crash
c) Urged GOI to contact Gorbachov to release info with regard to Netaji’s life and fate in USSR as very recently Gorbachov had confirmed the execution of two Indian revolutionaries namely Abani Mukherjee and Virendranath Chattopadhyay in USSR

13.Suresh Dutta, the then Vice President of Janata Dal in West Bengal wrote to PM on 01/09/1990 on the mentioned press report and the confirmation of Abani Mukherjee and Virendranth Chattopadhyay’s death in USSR. The info provided by Amiya ought to be taken seriously by GOI and make further follow up. The shifting of ASHES cannot be done unless a confirmation or forthright negation reach us from Moscow as to the doubts expressed.
The letter ( pressure from PM’s own Party) was marked copy to S.R.Bommai, the All India President of Janata Dal and to Amiya Bose

14.Amiya Bose’s letter to PM dated 13/09/1990 enclosing TOI report mentioned as per the Press Conference Convened by Amiya in Kolkata on 02/09/1990. Amiya give mention of his imminent air dash to Europe in pursuit of his inquiry in line with the Swedish diplomat’s information over phone and in consultation with Political leaders of West Germany

15.TOI report dated 02/09/1990 titled, ” FRESH CLUE ON NETAJI’S DEATH ”

a) The newspaper quotes Amiya of receiving info from a Swedish diplomat in August last 1990, over phone that something bad had happened to Netaji around 1947 in USSR.
b) The said diplomat was unwilling to expand the info over phone and he asked Amiya to fly to Europe soon and get in touch with him
c) Late Sarat Bose had expressed himself at the fag end of his life in 1949 that he had info via diplomatic channels that Netaji was either executed in USSR or imprisoned in a concentration camp.He wrote to Indian Ambasador in Moscow, Dr.S.Radhakrishnan but got no reply and he had approached the then Home Minister cum Deputy PM, Sardar Patel but to no avail
d) GOI must take up the matter direct with Gorbachov and get confirmation as to the death of Netaji in USSR if true
e) American sources have confirmed that Netaji reached Manchuria when Russian Army was occupying a portion of the same in August last 1945 after the Atom bomb explosions in Hiroshima and Nagasaki

16.A.K.Tiwari, the then deputy secretary to PMO sent a copy of Amiya Bose’s letter to PM dated 13/09/1990 addressed to Naresh Chandra, the then Home Affairs Secretary on 21/09/1990

17.Samar Guha’s letter to Kamal Murarka, the then Minister in charge of PMO dated 01/12/1990 requesting for support as the former visit Delhi i relation to the cause

The file is highly tricky and political unlike other files. The impression that Amiya Bose and Ashish Ray gives via their letters and involvement in 1990 which forced even the then PM to halt the shifting of ASHES from Tokyo to India is to be carefully analysed and understood.

I personally believe a fraud in their approach in 1990, as even a man like Samar Guha was side tracked and taken for a ride. Guha was a bit confused as his close personal friend, Amiya made him to be in 1990 and he wrote to PM asking for copy of Emilie Shenkl ( referring to her only Emilie Shenl not as others do as Emilie Shenkl Bose or as widow or wife to Netaji) which Pres reported to have received by PM as to clarify matter of shifting of ASHES because there is controversy with regard to the IDENTITY OF THE ASHES .

Why a man like Guha preferred a copy of imaginary letter of Emilie Schenkl in 1990 ? the answer is simple the sky rocketed Amiya Bose influenced his mind to take her seriously for a while

Why the Government of Gorbachov was not able to provide info with regard to death of Netaji in USSR in 1990 as GOI approached Govt of USSR ( not at the highest level) ? Netaji’s death never happened in USSR

Why Amiya was not able to collect much more info from ( documentary ) from his Swedish contact as he flew to Europe soon after all these correspondence ? Amiya’s friend was an imaginary person, a figment of imagination

Why Sarat Bose’s assertion in 1949 was kept secret upto 1990 ? Amiya prefered to make use of the same only in 1990 and he was the prImary source with no record to prove ( if a letter was sent to Dr.S,Radhakrishnan in Moscow, it was easy for Amiya to produce a copy of the same O press ) and he utilized his brain for the same

Why Sarat Bose published on front page of his Newspaper ” The Nation ” in one of the early issues of 1950 that Netaji is in Red China while Amiya said in 1990 that his Father had got info via diplomatic channels that Netaji was either executed in USSR or imprisoned in Siberia around 1949 ? In 1950 which is after 1949, Sarat Bose categorically published in his Paper that Netaji is in Red China ( Bhagwanji too asserted his stay in China since 1949 last ) and Muthu Lingam Thevar, MLA and Forward Bloc leader and confidant of Netaji had declared openly that he had gone to China after meeting Sarat Bose in Dec 1949 and have met Netaji in China without any Passport or visa and lived wit him for 6 months in China, came back and reported to Sarat Bose , thereafter news was published in THE NATION that Netaji is in Red China. Muthu Lingam Thever made Press statements on return bu the was never penalized for the same and it was only after he refused to co operate with Shah Nawaz Khan Committee in 1956 and demanded unilateral promise of GOI that Netaji’s name will be taken off from unpublished list of International War Criminals of UN, that he was arrested and he was in prison for a few months on false charges, released though a cripple physically and he passed away rather young in 1961 at the age of 59.

Why Amiya’s son Chandra Kumar Bose spoke in a number of TV talk shows and to Press people ever after April 2015 that Netaji was in China around late 1949 or 1950 undergoing training to come back ? Simply because he did not see the de classified files of Jan 23rd 2016 in April 2015, he was unaware of his late Father’s efforts in 1990

God save all the liars and fraud and let truth surface
