Audi Will Help Restore Car Which Netaji Used To Fool The British And Escape House Arrest

Published on 6 September, 2016 at 7:22 pm By

German auto giant Audi will be infusing a fresh lease of life into the car in which Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose made good his escape from house arrest on the night of January 16, 1941.

The car, a German Wanderer, sits inside a glass enclosure at the ancestral home of Netaji in Kolkata and is maintained by the Netaji Research Bureau (NRB).

In 1941, the greatest son of India was driven by his nephew Sisir Bose in the car from their home in Elgin Road to Gomoh (now in Jharkhand) – a distance of around 300 km.

Netaji’s escape is considered one of the biggest such feats in the history of the British Empire. Not one of the British intelligence officials were able to realize that Netaji had hoodwinked them.

From Gomoh, Netaji headed to Afghanistan and then all the way to Nazi Germany via Moscow.

NRB chairperson Krishna Bose said that all the components of the car will be repaired and restored to what it was in its original form.

The Wanderer W24, a 1937-make sedan, bears the registration number BLA 7169.
