Netaji snooping: Government rules out probe
The Centre has no plans to conduct any probe into the reports of surveillance on family members of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose by the Intelligence Bureau for 20 years. “There is no proposal to probe into the spying,” said Minister of State for Home Haribhai Parathibhai Chaudhary in Lok Sabha on Tuesday.
Chaudhary was replying to a written question by M Udhayakumar and Sunil Kumar Singh whether the government has set up any inquiry committee/ commission to investigate the spying incidents. “There is no proposal to probe into the spying as referred to in the question,” the minister told the Lower House in a written reply.
A large number of files relating to Netaji, including those relating to Khosla Commission and Mukherjee Commission, have been already declassified and sent to the National Archives of India, he said. “There are, however, some classified files with the central government. There are also some files with the government of West Bengal relating to Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose,” said Chaudhary.
