Time to bring Netaji’s remains to India, says his daughter

Indian Economist and Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s daughter Anita Bose Pfaff has once again reiterated her demand to bring back his remains to India. She claimed that both India and Japan have dilly-dallied on her demand.

“Even though he [Netaji] did not live to experience independence, it would be a certain gratification for him to have his remains returned to India,” Anita Bose told India Today.

“I feel that both the Indian government and the Japanese government have dilly-dallied around it and are feeling a bit uncomfortable with it,” she added.

Netaji’s death remains shrouded in mystery, though it is widely believed that he died in a plane crash on August 18, 1945 in Taiwan.

While two commissions of inquiry had concluded that Netaji had died in a plane crash in Taipei on August 18, 1945, a third probe panel, headed by Justice MK Mukherjee, had contested it and suggested that Bose was alive after that.
