These statements are also quite clear and definite. Though the incident is alleged to have taken place in August, 1945, no enquiry was made by the Japanese Government during the last eleven years nor has any initiative or suggestion come from that quarter up to the end of September, 1955. It is really puzzling to persons, who have little knowledge of international affairs, but are possessed with the usual amount of common sense to realise that an enquiry as to whether Netaji is dead or not, should be the duty of the Japanese Government and not of the Indian Government, but, in the course of the next few months, the common sense view was eventually accepted in preference to the other and our Government on its own initiative formed a Committee for making an enquiry, which, it had only recently said, was not at all necessary. It imposed this Committee on the Government of Japan by deputing it to hold its sittings in their territory and for examining their nationals there. As stated once before, a pressing necessity must have arisen for a sudden change in a long-standing plan and conviction.
