"Lal Bahadur Shastri was one of the greatest sons of India and certainly one of the best prime ministers India ever had! It is unfortunate that he passed away at Tashkent on January 11, 1966, under mysterious circumstances. Till today the truth has been hidden from the nation," Netaji's grand-nephew Chandra Kumar Bose said on a Facebook post.

Bose said that Shastri had promised his father Amiya Nath Bose that he would set up a proper inquiry commission on his return from Russia in January, 1966.

"Lal Bahadur Shastri had promised Amiya Nath Bose, Netaji's nephew, in Kolkata on 23 December 1965, that during his visit to Russia, he would try to find out whether Netaji was in Russia," Bose said in his post.
