New Delhi: A ses­sion on Sub­hash Chan­dra Bose and his sud­den dis­ap­pear­ance was con­ducted by Anuj Dhar, au­thor of What hap­pened to Ne­taji. Bose formed Azad Hind Army which played a cru­cial role in the In­dian free­dom strug­gle. Anuj Dhar, a renowned writer who has ex­ca­vated dark se­crets about Bose’s death ded­i­cated 20 years un­earthing the truth be­hind Ne­taji’s death.

The dis­cus­sion be­gan with the ma­jor pos­si­bil­i­ties be­hind Bose’s death. “There is a pos­si­bil­ity of an air crash in Taipei, he is killed in Rus­sia, or he is liv­ing in In­dia as a saint,” said Dhar. He added that he may not have died in Taipei as they re­jected the Bose crash the­ory. Many be­lieve that, he was killed on 18 Au­gust 1945, but Tai­wan in­formed an In­dian In­ves­ti­ga­tion that no plane crashes took place be­tween Au­gust 14 to Septem­ber 20 1945.

The sec­ond the­ory too fail, as Ne­taji was in Rus­sia till 1968. He met Nikhil Chat­topad­hyay, son of revo­lu­tion­ary Viren­dranath Chat­topad­hyay, at Omsk, says an af­fi­davit in a clas­si­fied PMO file re­leased in New Delhi on Thurs­day.
