India declassifies 64 files on Bose. The files will be put on public display, but their contents are not yet known. Some analysts say that the declassified files are not as important as those still classified. It is not known how many more classified files on him the government is in possession of. A source in the India’s prime minister’s office says:
[We can not] declassify files related to Chandra as it [would] adversely affect relations with foreign countries.
Many people in India refuse to accept the official version of events of Bose’ death –that he died in a plane crash — especially since no photograph of the body, which officials say has been cremated, has been released.
