Cuttack: After the Forward Bloc expressed annoyance at a book published by Lok Sabha Secretariat which stated that Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose died on August 18, 1945, his grandson Chandra Kumar Bose has demanded that the mystery behind his disappearance be probed afresh.

Son of Netaji's elder brother's son, Chandra Kumar, suggested that more research be done to unravel the mystery. He also expressed displeasure over the rejection of the Justice Manoj Mukherjee Commission report by the Centre in 2006.

Justice Mukherjee, a former judge of Supreme Court, was asked in 1999 to find out whether Netaji was dead or alive; if dead, whether he died in the plane crash on August 18, 1945 over Taiwan; whether the ashes in a Japanese temple were his ashes; and to ascertain if he died in any other manner at any other place and if so, when and how.

Justice Mukherjee in his report had clearly stated that Netaji did not die in the plane crash, and the ashes in a Japanese temple were not his.

"Unfortunately, Justice Mukherjee could not get the required documents to do more research to find out what happened after 18 August 1945," Chandra Kumar who visited the ancestral house of Netaji here at Odia Bazar yesterday and paid tributes to the celebrated leader, said.
