In every step where an attempt is made to unravel the conspirators behind the assassinations and killing, there is an attempt to subvert it and suppress it.
By the way will CPI-ML and others tell how often have the Commission's unearthed the truth? Why is CPI-ML and other political parties interested in the lies or half truths which Commission's give birth to?
Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose continues to be in news 60 years after his disputed death. A BBC poll named Netaji the third most popular leader in
Nehru did institute the Shah Nawaz Khan Committee in 1956 after the Indian newspapers broke the news (based on agancy reports) on
Shah Nawaz Committee was formed only after the Nehru Government was threatened that a non-official body headed by Justice Radha Binode Pal would be formed. "Several intelligence agencies set out to find the truth. PES Finney, a Deputy Director at the Intelligence Bureau (IB), led one such team from India. It was discovered, at the very outset, that the Japanese had tried to cover up something. The records of Bose's last movements had been systematically destroyed. But "secret" telegrams concerning the crash "had been deliberately left", the British averred, and "constituted part of the deception plan".
An IB report dated October 5, 1945 stated that a day before his "death", when "Bose arrived in Saigon, (Japanese) General (Saburo) Isoda was also there, and this fact may be significant if there was any plan on the part of the Hikari Kikan (Japanese military unit liaising with Netaji's Government) to allow Bose to escape, and to publish a false story regarding his death. This would have been the ideal place for Isoda to put into operation any such plan."
A November 6, 1945 report stated: "It is beyond doubt that he (Bose) had plans to go underground" and "the Japanese had undertaken to give Bose the necessary protection".
And on November 12, 1945 came a big surprise. (See image). Finney sent a report demolishing the claim by the Japanese and Habibur Rahman that Netaji was heading to Tokyo at the time of the alleged plane crash."
A powerless committee under the Ministry of External Affairs headed by Nehru was formed. Shah Nawaz Khan, one time INA man, was now a Congress MP and Parliamentary Secretary to the Railway Minister. A member of this committee, Netaji's non-politician brother Suresh Bose, later walked out saying he was being pressurised to sign on the dotted lines. Suresh Bose came up with his own report saying that there was no crash and Netaji escaped to the Soviet Russia.
G D Khosla headed the most notorious commission
Indira Gandhi's government set up Justice G D Khosla Commission (1970-1974) upheld the findings of the Shah Nawaz Committee report, defeating the very purpose of its institution. Khosla was a friend of Nehrus to start with and he wrote the biography of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. G D Khosla was formerly Chief Justice of the Punjab High Court. He headed a enquiry without a terms of reference at the request of Government of India in a corruption case involving a Custodian of Evacuee Property, senior member of the Indian Civil Service and since the Custodian in question proceeded on leave, he was given complete charge of the department. He had come to hold an enquiry and now he was asked to run the entire show. In his perplexity, he met Mahatma Gandhi in October 1948 in Birla''s house on
Prime Minister Morarji Desai had rejected the findings of the Shah Nawaz and G D Khosla Commissions. In 1977, in a debate was initiated by MP Professor Samar Guha in the Lok Sabha, Desai conceded that due to serious contradictions in evidence and contemporary official documents the Government thought the findings of these panels were not decisive. This has been the stand of the Government since then. That is, the Government of India doesn't think that Netaji died in 1945.
The third Justice Manoj Kumar Mukehrjee Commission of Inquiry into Netaji's disappearance was formed in April 1999 following an order of the Calcutta High Court over a Public Interest Litigation. In its order dated April 30, 1998, the court told the Union Government to "launch a vigorous inquiry ... as a special case for the purpose of giving an end to the controversy" surrounding Netaji's disappearance. The Court observed that "lapses have occurred from time to time" and "no serious effort in this behalf (Netaji's disappearance) has been made" by the Government.
The Government did not contest the court's order and consequently notified on
The Government did not want any inquiry in
The report of Justice Mukherjee Commission of Inquiry, probing the disappearance of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose in August 1945 has been submitted to the Government and it is supposed to be tabled in Parliament along with the action taken report.
Sharma further added, "The Embassy of India in
But where is report, has it been tabled or did it became a casualty of the office of profit controversy. Netaji disappeared in 1945 and we do not know here did he vanish after three Commissions about what happened to him. Can anyone who is sane still believe that the Commission will conclusively establish the truth?
Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated on
“The dead bodies (Godse and Apte) were cremated inside the gaol, the ground where the pyres had been erected was ploughed up and the earth and ashes taken to the Ghaggar river and secretly submerged at a secluded spot,” wrote Justice Khosla, one of the trial judges and the Sentencing Judge. Justice Jivanlal Kapur Commission was formed to investigate the Conspiracy to murder Mahatma Gandhi was set up in 1965. Why did it take so long to constitute a Commission? Did this Commission find out as to why was ashes of Godse and Apte submerged secretly?. Does the Commission refer to the certificates of the Doctors which certified him dead?

Did the Justice Y V Chandrachud Commission of Inquiry connected with his death Deen Dayal Upadhyaya reveal the circumstances of his death in 1968? Upadhyaya’s life was cut short by the unknown hands on
Lalit Narayan Mishra, the Railway Minister in the Indira Gandhi Government was assassinated on
Sanjay Gandhi's death led to the formation of Justice M L Jain Commission which was appointed to probe the plane crash that killed Sanjay. In violation of mandatory law that inquiry was stopped without any plausible reason and the cause of the plane crash remains a mystery. It is mandatory for the government to institute a commission of inquiry into all airplane crashes. Did this Commission reach any conclusion?
The Arjun Singh Government of Madhya Pradesh set up a commission of inquiry called the Bhopal Poisonous Gas Leakage Inquiry Commission, presided over by N.K. Singh, a sitting judge of the Madhya Pradesh High Court on
A week later, the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research submitted a detailed report squarely implicating the Union Carbide Company for faulty design of the plant as well as its reckless disregard of operational safety. This happened only after Warren Anderson, chairman of Union Carbide was arrested in Bhopal on December 6, 1984 and released on bail on December 7 and allow flee the country. He remains an absconder accused of manslaughter. Now Union Carbide had merged with Dow Chemicals and Indian Government in which Arjun Singh still has a potent voice is doing nothing to bring
Justice C K Thakkar Commission appointed to inquire into the death of Indira Gandhi ruled that an inquiry commission into the conspiracy angle should be appointed because “the needle of suspicion pointed” at R K Dhawan who had been Indira Gandhi's personal secretary. Thakkar is former Chief Justice of Mumbai High Court. Rajiv Gandhi made Dhawan a Minister in his Cabinet. Justice Thakkar was made the chairman of the Law Commission. Did this Commission's findings mean anything?.
Thakkar Commission categorically pointed out that there was foreign hand behind the assassination of Indira Gandhi. Although it was a matter of national concern, Rajiv Gandhi did not think it fit to find out as to who were the foreign hands behind it. Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated in Sri Perambudur while campaigning in 1991 elections. The Jain Commission inquiring into the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi has also pointed at some foreign hands behind it. Should foreign conspiracies like these remain unearthed?
Do you still believe in Commissions and the utility of Commissions?
Will CPI -ML enligthen as to why no Commission was set up to probe the killings of Upper Caste people?
Why does Justice Amir Das who headed the Commission for nine long years to probe the political links of the outlawed Ranvir Sena, a private army of landlords could not conclude his investigation in so many years?
Justice Amir Das, the retired judge of the Patna High Court dismissed the charge that the commission was taking too long to complete its task. The commission was notified in December 1997, shortly after the Laxmanpur Bathe massacre.
It took three years to the commission to ensure basic infrastructure and during these three years, he continued without any office, lawyers, courtroom, employees etc to complete the probe. The commission started functioning in 2001.
CPI (ML) has appealed to
Even if this Commission is granted requisite time and facilities for finishing its job, how can anyone be so gullible to believe that the recommendations of this Commission will also not meet the same fate?
The way Justice Thakkar Commission that inquired into the assassination of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was treated it seemed the judges will refrain from chairing such commissions of inquiry. Justice J S Verma Commission relating to the security aspects about the Rajiv Gandhi assassination seemed an exception but soon the judges gave in to the temptation of post-retirement benefits. The High Court judges and apex court judges both the serving ones and the retired ones seem to have fallen prey to the bait of heading a Commission of Inquiry. Whenever it suits the politicians, they set up Parliamentary Committees and ignore the judges and when they employ them if it suits them they dissolve the Commissions or deny the required extensions to them still judges allow themselves to be humiliated and exploited.
