Asked about Modi's response, he said the Prime Minister assured that he would look into the matter right away as he too felt that the "truth should come out."

Surya attacked the Nehru government, saying it was "shocking" that a government of independent India had spied upon Netaji’s family.

"The government should get the truth out," he added. Surya cited there should an investigative commission to go into the matter to bring out the truth.

Asked about the earlier Commissions of inquiry, he said, "the first two were totally bogus." He said the Mukherjee Commission had done more but it did not have investigative powers.
