Mission Netaji, a pressure group which has been actively trying to probe the disappearance mystery of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose for a decade, will pursue the formation of SIT ( special investigation team) which will not only guide the declassification of the secret government files on the leader but bring the death mystery to a closure.
Members of Mission Netaji met with the Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with Netaji’s family members at the PM’s residence on October 14.
The multi-disciplinary team SIT, comprising historians, retired judges, intelligence officers, archivists and representatives of the family of Netaji as well as investigative researchers and civil society organisations will help complete the task left unfinished by the Mukherjee Commission(2006), in a time-bound manner, said Mission Netaji members to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a memorandum. The members will meet up with the Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh to work out more details of the SIT soon, Chandrachur Ghose told Millennium Post. Modi has instructed the Home Minister to expedite the process of declassification of secret files on Bose.
The organisation also wanted the SIT to be vested with certain powers. “Clear instructions should be issued to all departments of the Union government and the state governments to cooperate with the SIT. The SIT should be given full authority to summon anyone it feels relevant and requisition all documents required for a complete investigation,” the mission had appealed.
Mission Netaji also wrote to the PM to formally request other countries such as the United Kingdom, People’s Republic of China, Russian Federation, the United States of America at the highest
level so that they share all information they hold on Netaji with the government of India to aid the investigation by the SIT.
“The previous requests from <g data-gr-id="24">government</g> to government had been <g data-gr-id="20">half hearted</g>. Now that Modiji has agreed to personally request the Russian PM Putin to unravel KGP files on Bose, there may be vital information coming out of its archives,” said Ghose.
