New Delhi: The central government on Wednesday formed a new panel to review the ‘Official Secrets Act’ in connection to the declassification of files on Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, held for decades by consecutives government.

As per the reports, the new committee will be headed by the Cabinet Secretary. RAW, IB, PMO and Home ministry will be part of the panel.

The decision is believed to be the result of immense pressure felt by the Modi government amidst the snooping row and PM’s meeting with Netaji’s grandnephew Surya Bose in Germany. Modi had assured Surya Bose of necessary action on the matter.

It is to be noted that a report was circulated in the media that Nehru allegedly snooped on Netaji’s family.
