Kolkatta, September 19: West Bengal PM Mamata Banerjee on Friday announced that Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose might have been alive after 1945 after declassifying 64 secret files of Netaji.
Mamata released a digital version of 64 files to the public which have several references and correlations to the point of Netaji's presence after 1945. The most crucial of them is a Howrah CID report quoting British and US intelligence reports that Netaji was alive after 1945 and 'might have undergone training in Russia'.
While releasing the files at the Police Museum, Mamata also demanded the centre to declassify 130 secrets files of Netaji that it holds upon and said that it is very unfortunate that the mystery of Netaji's disappearane is still unresolved.
"It is time for the Centre to release their files", Mamta said. "There are mentions here and there about Netaji post-1945 which indicate that he might have been alive after the alleged crash. I have not seen all the files,but we have made a beginning. People should know the truth. Let the truth come out",she added addressin a press meet.
