Netaji ‘did not’ die in plane crash

Vijayawada, April 14
Capt Sobharam Tokas, who was a bodyguard of Subhas Chandra Bose, today said he firmly believed that the revolutionary INA leader was not killed in a plane crash as announced by the Britishers.

Talking to newspersons here, Captain Tokas, who was here to participate in the 21st National Council meeting of the All-India Freedom Fighters and Successors Organisation, said Netaji had planned to go to Bangkok from India to Russia through Mangolia, to ensure his country’s early independence.

“It is 100 per cent sure that Netaji went to Russia,” claimed Captain Tokas, who was an Intelligence Officer in the first battalion of the INA and its Delhi Pradesh general secretary.

He also subscribed to the view that Netaji was in a Russian jail, but he was no more.

Asked whether he was satisfied with the facilities being provided by the Union Government, he said he was availing of pension, medical facilities and also railway pass. But many of the INA members were not getting it. UNI
