September 18, 2015 6:35 pm
India’s West Bengal government has declassified 64 files on revolutionary leader Subhash Chandra Bose.
The files, which were in the possession of Kolkata police, will be put on public display, but their contents are not yet known.
Mr Bose had approached Germany and Adolf Hitler to form an army to kick the British out of India and was wanted by allied forces.
His death has been the subject of a number of conspiracy theories in India.
It is not known how many more classified files on him the Indian government is in possession of.
Many people in India have refused to accept the official version of events that Mr Bose died in an aeroplane crash in 1945.
No photograph of the body, which was said to have been cremated in Taiwan, was released.
