Kolkata: Miffed over the use of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose's name by the sect involved in Mathura violence, his grandnephew Chandra Kumar Bose on Tuesday demanded a CBI inquiry into the incident.

"Netaji took up arms to fight against the British rule. But now the rule of law is supreme. We have a Constitution that does not allow anyone to take law into their own hands. They (the sect) were using the name of Netaji for their own vested interests. I feel there should be a CBI inquiry into the incident to bring out the truth," Bose told PTI.

 

"From where did they get so much of arms and ammunition?" he wondered.

Ram Vriksh Yadav, the chief of the violent encroachers at Jawahar Bagh who was among those killed in the clashes with police in Mathura last week, was the leader of Azad Bharat Vidhik Vaicharik Kranti Satyagrahi - an outfit claiming allegiance to Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose.

 

"I strongly object to the use of Netaji's name by this sect. They for their own benefit are resorting to violence and maligning the name of Netaji," Bose added.
