Prime Minister Narendra Modi today released digital copies of 100 secret files related to Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, on the freedom fighter's 119th birth anniversary at the National Archives of India (NAI). The files have been put in the public domain for the first time and the NAI plans to release digital copies of 25 declassified files on Bose every month.

Netaji’s family members, who arrived in Delhi for the event, broke down after seeing the files. Modi had, in his meeting with members of the Bose family in October last year, announced that the government would declassify the files relating to the leader whose disappearance 70 years ago still remains a mystery.
