Netaji Did Not Die In Plane Crash Says France

Paris-based historian J B P More has recently stumbled upon a brief French secret service report dated December 11, 1947. The report dated December 11, 1947 at the National Archives of France, has come up with a finding that Bose didn’t die in an air crash and was still alive in 1947.

Netaji didn’t die in air crash and was still alive in 1947, says secret French report.

The French govt had always been silent on the issue.

Though Vietnam/Indochina was a French colony during the 1940s.

How did Subhas Chandra Bose die? To find the answer, the Indian government had appointed three commissions. The Shah Nawaz Committee (1956)

Khosla Commission (1970) said that Bose died in an air crash on August 18, 1945 at Taihoku airport in Japanese-occupied Taipei.

But Mukherjee Commission (1999) concluded that he did not die in an air-crash. The government, however, rejected the findings of the Mukherjee Commission. But that didn’t stop scholars from dwelling deep to find the truth.

Paris-based historian J B P More, who recently stumbled upon a brief French secret service. The report dated December 11, 1947 at the National Archives of France, has come up with a finding that Bose didn’t die in an air crash and was still alive in 1947.
The French did not buy the theory that Bose died in the air-crash on August 18, 1945.{ This report is collected from Times Of India }.

The gist of the matter for the French secret service

According to More, is that Bose did not die in the air crash.

But he escaped from Indochina alive and his whereabouts were unknown as late as December 11, 1947.

Quoting the report written for the “Haut Commisariat de France for Indochina “SDECE Indochinese Base BCRI No. 41283 csah Ex No. 616, under the title: “Archival Information on Subhas Chandra Bose”. In this report, it is stated clearly that he escaped from Indochina, though it does not state how,” he said.

The British and the Japanese too declared that Bose died in an air crash after he took off from Saigon on his way to Tokyo. After the Japanese debacle and surrender on 15th August 1945, the French arrived and their troops and took charge of Saigon. But unfortunately they left no direct accounts of Bose’s death in the air crash. They had never endorsed the theory that Bose died in the crash,” said More.

Bose was a great leader, visionary and a true son of India. Such warriors don’t die, they get immortalized in legends. We don’t mourn our heroes, we celebrate their courage. He lives on to inspire us.
