Chandra Kumar Bose, the grand-nephew of freedom fighter Subhas Chandra Bose, has approached the Calcutta High Court seeking action by Central government to stop distortion and misinformation in literature and films on Netaji and the Indian freedom movement..The petitioner also urged the Central government to constitute a team of “eminent representatives (including relatives)” to bring back the mortal remains of Netaji from the current resting place at the Renkoji Temple in Tokyo, Japan to India. The petitioner said that there is a need for careful verification of the historical authenticity and veracity of events depicted in films, books and other publications about the freedom movement. .The plea raised particular concern about the adverse treatment meted out to Netaji and how his life-history was being distorted. "Subhash Chandra Bose is not a character out of mythology or fiction that his life and legacy would be open to the imagination and fantasy of a story-teller and rumour-monger. Netaji lived and served the country in one of the most turbulent times in the history of the sub-continent. His contributions to and actions during the freedom struggle have had a paramount and positive influence in building a free India,” the plea said..As per the petitioner, following reports are declassified by current government which conclusively established that Netaji died on August 18, 1945 in an air crash in Taiwan:1) Japanese preliminary report, Sept 1945,2) British-India govt report, Oct 1945,3) Figgess' report, July 1946,4) Harin Shah's (private) report, Sept 1946,5) Turner's report, Oct 1946,6) Indian Independence League's (prvt) report, June 1954,7) Japanese Detailed report, Jan 1956,8) Taiwanese govt report, June 1956,9) Shan Nawaz Khan Committee report, Aug 1956,10) Justice Khosla Commission report, 1974..An initial version of the story incorrectly mentioned that the nephew of Netaji filed the petition instead of grand nephew. The story has been corrected. The error is regretted.
