Centre forms Panel to review Official Secret Act


New Delhi, April 15: The Union government formed a high-level panel to review the official secret act on the demand to release the files related to freedom fighter Netaji Subhash Bose after the IB report that late Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru had spied on the family of Bose for 20 years.

The committee will be headed by Cabinet Secretary. This will comprise the officials from the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), Intelligence Bureau (IB) and Prime Minister's Office (PMO).

The panel will decide whether the documents related to the information on Bose death can be made public.

The move came just two days after Bose's grandnephew Surya Kumar Bose met Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his trip to Germany. Modi had assured Bose to look into the snooping controversy and positive steps will be taken towards revealing the secret files on the veteran leader.
