Chandra Bose along with other relatives visit the Netaji Files at Calcutta Police Museum after it’s open on Friday Express photo by Subham Dutta180915 This 1965 intercept was part of a weekly secret survey of the Netaji Research Bureau by the West Bengal government’s state intelligence officers At the heart of this covert operation was the regular interception of letters at the Elgin Road Post Office In particular two addresses had been been identified for surveillance — the residence of Netaji and his family at 1 Woodburn Park and their ancestral home which later became Netaji Bhawan at 38/2 Elgin Road The surveillance was authorised by “section 26(1) of the Indian Post Office Act 1898” and the post-master was told to “direct the interception of all… postal articles which may be discovered in the course of transmission” to the Deputy Commissioner of Police Special Branch CID Calcutta Also in the files are details of a covert operation that continued for years which included tracking of letters exchanged between members of the Bose family and various individuals Anyone close to the family would also be put through a thorough background check — including scrutiny of their political leanings education and relation to the Bose family — the files revealed The files also comprise various newspaper reports — mostly in English and Bengali — on the political activities of the family Over the years the surveillance also tracked the growth of communism and left-wing politics in the state through the lens of the Bose family’s involvement For instance a report on May 10 1949 notes that Soumyendra Nath Tagore described as “closely associating with Sri Sarat Chandra Bose” had arrived in Calcutta “He is regularly holding closed-door meetings at his residence with these leaders and is forming an agitation against the present government He is trying to make an alliance with all the leftist parties on this issue and is of late supporting the CPI line of action in resorting to sabotage and other violent activities for overthrowing the present regime” the report stated Such notes were filed daily at the time under a section pertaining to “Socialism and Communism” and “subversive activities” Members of Netaji’s family reacted sharply to the declassified documents and demanded a probe into the reasons behind the snooping His grand-nephew Chandra Bose said “Why did they spy on my father Amiya Nath Bose They deployed 14 men from the intelligence branch to spy on him Why should the Indian government spy on the families of an Indian revolutionary I demand that Narendra Modi institute a probe” he said adding that further clarity could be achieved by the declassification of files lying with the Union government Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said it was “unfortunate” that the truth around Netaji continued to remain obscure “We made a beginning The people should know the truth Let the central government also declassify files” she said For all
