Subhash Bose Was Alive And Active Till 1948
first surprising information which exits from declassified files of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose by West Bengal government states that Netaji was alive even after Independence and was in Manchuria till 1948.
According to file No. 22 of Bengal Government which has data about intelligence gathered by the Bengal police on leaders of Indian National Army says that a close aid of Netaji and top INA official Deb Nath Das, had claimed that Bose was “alive” and somewhere in Manchuria of China in 1948.
Deb Nath Das was important member of provisional Indian government which is formed by Netaji Subash Chandra Bose in exile in 1943 after formation of INA with the help of Japan.
Dossier based on this file says that on August 9, 1948 Deb Nath Das, an ex-INA leader was continuously propagating in political and social circles that Netaji Subash Chandra Bose is alive and is somewhere in Manchuria, China at present.He had also claimed that Netaji told him before the plane-crash that there is possibility of a third world war and we must prepare for that.
It must be recalled that first announcement of Netaji’s death in plane-crash was done by Tokyo Radio on August 22, 1945 and claimed that he was died while going to Japan in Formosa (presently Taiwan) on August 18, 1945 but the nation has rejected this claim completely.
Files also indicated that Netaji was watching the international and national situation to determine among the foreign powers that which can be future friend of India and which is the enemy.
According to declassified 1948 confidential diary page of Deb Nath Das also indicates that he was in the mood to contest election from south Calcutta constituency of the West Bengal Assembly as he was well known of his anti-Congress activities at that time.
