Titled ‘killer and contract killers
of Lal Bahadur Shastri’
Gandhi and Shastri both shared a common birth day- the Oct 2. Both passed away in the same month January. Mahatma Gandhi killed by Godse. But who are contract killers of Netaji Bose, Shyama Prasad Mukherji and Deen Dayal Upadhyay?
Why murder of Dr. Chugh and his whole family?
The Ministry of External Affairs has already said no post-mortem was conducted in USSR. The Central Public Information Officer of the Delhi Police in his reply dated July 29, 2009 said, "no such record related to the death of the former prime minister of India Lal Bahadur Shastri is available in the district... Hence, the requisite information pertaining to New Delhi District may please be treated as Nil."
Author of the book 'CIA's Eye on South Asia', Anuj Dhar had filed an RTI application, carrying eight questions, with the Prime Minister's Office.
The PMO answered only two questions of the RTI application saying it has only one classified document pertaining to the death of Shastri which is exempted from disclosure under the RTI Act. It sent rest of the questions to Ministry of External Affairs and Home Ministry to answer.
The MEA said only document from the erstwhile Soviet Government is "the report of the Joint Medical Investigation conducted by a team comprising Dr R N Chugh, Doctor in-Attendance to the PM and some Russian doctors" and added no post-mortem was conducted in the USSR.
The Home Ministry referred the matter to Delhi Police and National Archives for the response pertaining to any post-mortem conducted on the body of Shastri in India.
Dhar , who has launched a website endthesecrecy.com to lobby for declassification policy along the lines of the US ?also asked if India had any information given by the Soviets. The home ministry is yet to respond to queries
