The correspondence between the two is dated April 6, 1999 and is a part of the declassified file number 915/11/C/2/2000-PO1.
Talking about the latest disclosure, Netaji researcher and author Anuj Dhar said that this now buries the “war criminal” controversy for good adding that “a lot of time and energy have been wasted on the issue.”

Though Netaji’s grandnephew Chandra Bose was happy about this disclosure and said that this would now help to take the probe forward, he refused to believe that this was the final set of files.
“These could be the last set that the PMO had handed over to the National Archives, but we are still at the initial stages of solving the Netaji disappearance mystery.”
