After Subhas’s brother Sarat’s return from Europe, intelligence agencies followed his development when he held meetings with Forward Bloc and Socialist Republican Party leaders. During one of these meetings with key party functionaries like Leela Roy, Satya Bakshi and the likes, Sarat announced the information that he had attained in Europe regarding Subhas Chandra Bose’s participation in the Chinese Liberation Movement. He believed Netaji was alive and continued to be in China.

During a time when Sarat Bose was trying to bring Leftist parties together, including Forward Bloc and Socialist Republican Party, in search for a common formula to work unitedly against the Congress, a note dated January 26, 1949, an intelligence agency quoted Sarat Bose affirming Subhas Chandra Bose’s contribution in the Communist Party’s victory in China.
