Reportedly, Gumnami Baba, who had an uncanny resemblance with Netaji entered Uttar Pradesh via Nepal in the guise of an ascetic (sadhu) and started staying in Ram Bhavan, Faizabad, from 1983. He reportedly breathed his last on September 16, 1985 in Faizabad and was cremated on Sept 18, 1985.
Those who have met Netaji before 1945 have reportedly said that after meeting Gumnami Baba they are are certain that he was Netaji. Their faces resembled a lot.
