Have proof Netaji died in plane crash: Grandnephew

Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s grandnephew Ashish Ray has claimed he has “irrefutable evidence” to prove Bose died hours after he was seriously burnt in an air crash on outskirts of an airfield in Teipei, Taiwan, on August 18, 1945.
Speaking to Karan Thapar on India Today’s Nothing But The Truth, Ray said two doctors, a nurse, an interpreter and Bose’s aide-de-camp Colonel Habibur Rehman have given eyewitness accounts of his last moments. According to Ray, like him, Bose’s daughter Anita Bose Pfaff is also in favour of a DNA test on remains kept at Tokyo’s Renkoji Temple.
Ray said he has been able to establish through evidence posted on that on August 12, 1945, Bose was in Malaya when he heard Japan had offered to surrender to the Allies. He then returned to Singapore where he learnt Japanese were ready to give him shelter. On August 16, he began the journey to Tokyo. In the first stage, he reached Bangkok.
“The Japanese told Bose that his situation in South East Asia was becoming insecure and asked him to move to Japan. This was conveyed to him in Singapore and reiterated at Bangkok. It was planned that he would go to Japan, but his plan was to disappear, perhaps into Soviet Union,” Ray said.
