Lal Bahadur Shastri, the former Prime Minister of India. A man who rose from poverty and reached political eminence on the foundation of moral principles. When I think about truth and honesty in Congress, his name is the first which strikes my mind. When he was a boy he was drawn towards the national struggle for freedom. He was a born patriot. Love for the country was in his blood. During the short period(Unfortunately) he showed that he possessed extraordinary power to face every problem bravely. He put down all the undesirable elements with a strong hand. He proved himself a man of iron will when the country was suffering from corruption and nepotism.
Shastri ji gave us a cleaner and healthier administration. He suspended many corrupt officials and dismissed many of them. In September 1965 he faced unexpected war with Pakistan but he faced the enemy with iron determination. The army was given a free hand. It crossed International Border. The enemy was given a crushing defeat and then he signed the Tashkent pact but Shastriji died in Tashkent soon after signing the historic pact. The nation mourned his death. India lost a great and worthy son after he was Killed in Tashkent. Yea you saw that right, Lal Bahadur Sashtri was killed.
The Prime Minister of India went to Tashkent for a pact and never came back. The Soviet newspaper Tass put the cold message: “The Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR and the Council of Ministers of the USSR is sad to notice that 11 Jan, 1966 in 1 hour and 32 minutes in Tashkent died a distinguished statesman, Prime Minister of India Lal Bahadur Shastri.“
Lal Bahadur Shastri was murdered in Tashkent. It was alleged that he died of a heart attack but the circumstances seemed extremely suspicious and there are so many pieces of evidence to conclude that he was murdered. Recently Shastri’s family has also asked files related to his demise be declassified, just like Subhash Chandra Bose’s. The Raj Narain Committee was set up to inquire about his death but the Inquiry apparently could not come up with any conclusions, however, there are no records in the Parliament’s library of this inquiry. Regardless of the conclusion, it does raise questions as to why the report is missing, suppressed, or destroyed.
Also Lalitha Shastri, the wife of Lal Bahadur Shastri said the body was blue and there were cut marks. A body turns blue if it is embalmed. If there was no post-mortem conducted, then why would these indications be there? And if it was, where are the reports? and if there was no postmortem then why the cuts were present on his body. The most important person in the country dies in another Country and no postmortem was conducted?
His personal doctor, RN Chugh, had said that he was in perfect health and never had any heart issues in the past. A heart attack seemed highly unlikely and since there were claims that there was no post-mortem conducted, then the puncture marks could be a result of poisoning. But what’s weird is a matter of coincidental fate that the dead PM’s personal physician, Dr R.N.Chugh, along with his wife and two sons, meeting their end, in a road accident, shortly afterward.
You won’t believe but the other was his servant Ram Nath who visited Shastri’s home first and according to the family members he said, “Bahut din ka bojh tha, amma. Aaj sab bata denge (I have been carrying this burden too long. I will shed it today).” He too was hit by a car. His legs were crushed and had to be amputated. He lost his memory. Dr. Chugh and Ram Nath were the key witnesses to this case and both were scheduled to be in front of the parliamentary body in 1977.
There are many other factors which can prove Shastri Ji was murdered but lets come to something important.
What such thing did Shastri Ji had, that one could get greedy of?
Indeed, the position of Prime Minister of India which may have interested many at that time, and Shastri Ji’s opposition to some of Congress’s policies created the best environment for those who wanted that position. For the congress, Shastri Ji had become a person who knew their truth and wasn’t afraid of revealing it. Moreover, Shastri Ji also condemned the ideology of Congress related to SC Bose (Netaji). Shastri Ji had talked to her wife about a ‘special person’ he is going to meet; Probably, Netaji who had disguised himself in the cover of his own death. It is quite likely that his phone calls were being monitored by the IB (Intelligence Bureau). If indeed this “incredible news” were to be about Subhash Bose being alive, it would have shaken the Congress Party to the very core of its foundation. The Congress party and their allies have always been the biggest supporters of “Bose died in 1945 “ theory, even though the British Intelligence services had expressed their doubts.
What if Shastri Ji was going to bring home the truth of Subhash Candra Bose with him?
This sole question was of extreme importance for INC and on getting a chance…
But was there someone else involved too? Was it KGB or CIA ?
India got independence in 1947 and at that time, it was extremely poor. The economic condition required assistance of an experienced nation. But who?
Indeed, RUSSIA & USA
Russia and USA readily agreed but, they had certain terms that India had to agree upon. What were those terms?
Obviously, neither CIA nor KGB wanted India to develop Nuclear weapons, but, India was developing it under the leadership of Shastri Ji . YES, we were developing nuclear weapons.
Let’s look at whats available with us that can relate this case to KGB.
Vasili Mitrokhin, a KGB spy who later defected to the United Kingdom, revealed many secret documents and information to the world through his archives called ‘Mitrokhin Archive’. In the archives, there are several chapters dedicated to India and the Gandhi family. Mitrokhin Archives are considered to be the most sensational counter-intelligence documents and what it said about India is something I can’t express in words. Have a look at it yourself.
To summarise what the book said
- Secret talks intercepted between CPI and someplace in Moscow by the Ind*an IB.
- In 1957, Krishna Menon, Minister of Defence was friendly with the S.U., so much that in 1962 the Soviets authorized a Russian Intelligence residency in New Delhi to strengthen the minister’s position. Later, he was involved in giving many defense deals to Russia.
- Gulzarilal Nanda the successor of Nehru and Shastri Ji were never in contact with the Russian Intelligence, but Rus Int supported them because they didn’t want Morarji Desai to succeed Nehru.
- In 1966, after Shastri’s dem*se, Congress chose I.G. as his successor; she was codenamed VANO by RusInt.
- During her appearances in Parliament, she seemed incomp*tent and unable to th*nk on her own.
- Russian Intelligence claimed that the 1967 elections were influenced by them, and they had in control over 40% of the new Parliament.
- In 1969, CPI gave its support to I.G., of course on the orders.
- When Congress split into two :
- Congress A – supporting the Syndicate
- Congress B – supporting I.G.
- The syndicate came open on I.G.’s intentions on selling India to the S.U. being in contact with them through her secretary.
- During the 1970s, RusInt’s largest presence in the world was in India after its place of origin (Soviet). There were no limits put by Indira Gandhi on the number of Soviet officials and diplomats in India.
- By 1973, RusInt had sources in every part of the Indian govt., foreign ministry, defense ministry, intelligence agenc*ies and even the police. A RusInt agent turned down a minister who wanted to provide information for $50,000, as RusInt already had connections in the ministries. To them, it looked like the entire country was for sale as written in the book.
- RusInt thought they were more successful than the AmrInt in exploiting the corrupts under I.G.’s rule.
- Bags of money were taken to the PM house as a routine and never returned. A gift on 20 lakh rupees was personally delivered by the head of RusInt’s Political Intelligence in India.
Why did the Indian Govt not encourage a postmortem even though the Shastri Ji’s family firmly requested it? It seems highly improbable that a man occupying one of the highest seats in the government, dies in a foreign land and that too under mysterious circumstances, does not even warrant an investigation. It seems very clear that someone higher up in the echelons of the ruling party desperately needed to hush it all up.
There are several questions that yet remain unanswered, just like the mystery surrounding the death of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. In fact this may be one of the biggest cover ups in the history of Independent India.
Let’s talk about the CIA now. Did it had a role? It’s actually related to death of Homi Bhabha.
In an interview with Journalist Gregory Douglas, Robert Crowley, Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) agent confirmed that CIA is behind the death of Lal Bahadur Shastri and even Dr Homi Bhabha. As the US seemed threatened by India emerging as a reformed state and also to put an end to Indo-Russian dominance in the nuclear front. . The interview was published in a book called, “Conversations with the Crow” .
Known as ‘The Crow’ within the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA),
Robert T. Crowley (‘Bob’ Crowley) joined the CIA at its inception and
spent his entire career in the Directorate of Plans, also know as the
‘Department of Dirty Tricks,’ Crowley was one of the tallest man ever
to work at the CIA. Born in 1924 and raised in Chicago , Crowley grew
to six and a half feet when he entered the U.S. Military Academy at
West Point in N.Y. as a cadet in 1943 in the class of 1946. He never
graduated, having enlisted in the Army, serving in the Pacific during
World War II. He retired from the Army Reserve in 1986 as a lieutenant
Bob (Robert) Crowley first contacted journalist Gregory Douglas in
1993 and they began a series of long and often very informative
telephone conversations that lasted for four years. In 1996, Crowley
told Douglas that he believed him to be the person that should
ultimately tell Crowley ‘s story but only after Crowley ‘s death.
Douglas, for his part, became so entranced with some of the material
that Crowley began to share with him that he secretly began to record
their conversations, later transcribing them word for word, planning
to incorporate some, or all, of the material in later publications.
In 1998, when Crowley was slated to go into the hospital for
exploratory surgery, he had his son, Greg, ship two large foot lockers
of documents to Douglas with the caveat that they were not to be
opened until after Crowley ‘s death. These documents, totaled an
astonishing 15,000 pages of CIA classified files involving many covert
operations, both foreign and domestic, during the Cold War.
While CIA drug running, money-launderings and brutal assassinations
are very often strongly rumored and suspected, it has so far not been
possible to actually pin them down but it is more than possible that
the publication of the transcribed and detailed Crowley-Douglas
conversations will do a great deal towards accomplishing this.
These many transcribed conversations are relatively short because
Crowley was a man who tired easily but they make excellent reading.
There is an interesting admixture of shocking revelations on the part
of the retired CIA official and often rampant anti-social (and very
entertaining) activities on the part of Douglas but readers of this
new and on-going series are gently reminded to always look for the
truth in the jest!
END OF BACKGROUND
Conversations with ‘the Crow’ – Part 14
JOURNALIST GREGORY DOUGLAS (GD): I am a man of sorrows and
acquainted with rage, Robert. How about the Company setting off a
small A-bomb in some hitherto harmless country and blaming it on mice.
FORMER CIA OFFICER ROBERT T CROWLEY (RTC): Now that’s something we
never did. In fact, we prevented at least one nuclear disaster.
JOURNALIST GREGORY DOUGLAS: What? A humanitarian act? Why, I am
astounded, Robert. Do tell me about this.
FORMER CIA OFFICER ROBERT T CROWLEY: Now, now, Gregory, sometimes
we can discuss serious business. There were times when we prevented
terrible catastrophes and tried to secure more peace. We had trouble,
you know, with India back in the 60s when they got uppity and started
work on an atomic bomb. Loud mouthed cow-lovers bragging about how
clever they were and how they, too, were going to be a great power in
the world. The thing is, they were getting into bed with the Russians.
Of course, Pakistan was in bed with the ****** so India had to find
another bed partner. And we did not want them to have any kind of
nuclear weaponry because God knows what they would have done with it.
Probably strut their stuff like a Washington nigger with a brass
watch. Probably nuke the *****. They’re all a bunch of neo-coons
anyway. Oh yes, and their head expert was fully capable of building a
bomb and we knew just what he was up to. He was warned several times
but what an arrogant prick that one was. Told our people to **** off
and then made it clear that no one would stop him and India from
getting nuclear parity with the big boys. Loud mouths bring it all
down on themselves. Do you know about any of this?
JOURNALIST GREGORY DOUGLAS: Not my area of interest or expertise.
Who is this joker, anyway?
FORMER CIA OFFICER ROBERT T CROWLEY: Was, Gregory, let’s use the
past tense if you please. Name was Homi Bhabha. That one was
dangerous, believe me. He had an unfortunate accident. He was flying
to Vienna to stir up more trouble when his BOEING 707 had a bomb go
off in the cargo hold and they all came down on a high mountain way up
in the Alps . No real evidence and the world was much safer.
JOURNALIST GREGORY DOUGLAS: Was Bhabha alone on the plane?
FORMER CIA OFFICER ROBERT T CROWLEY: No it was a commercial Air
JOURNALIST GREGORY DOUGLAS: How many people went down with him?
FORMER CIA OFFICER ROBERT T CROWLEY: Ah, who knows and frankly, who
JOURNALIST GREGORY DOUGLAS: I suppose if I had a relative on the
flight I would care.
FORMER CIA OFFICER ROBERT T CROWLEY: Did you?
JOURNALIST GREGORY DOUGLAS: No.
FORMER CIA OFFICER ROBERT T CROWLEY: Then don’t worry about it. We
could have blown it up over Vienna but we decided the high mountains
were much better for the bits and pieces to come down on. I think a
possible death or two among mountain goats is much preferable than
bringing down a huge plane right over a big city.
JOURNALIST GREGORY DOUGLAS: I think that there were more than
FORMER CIA OFFICER ROBERT T CROWLEY: Well, aren’t we being a
JOURNALIST GREGORY DOUGLAS: Now, now, it’s not an observation that
is unexpected. Why not send him a box of poisoned candy? Shoot him in
the street? Blow up his car? I mean, why ace a whole plane full of
FORMER CIA OFFICER ROBERT T CROWLEY: Well, I call it as it see it.
At the time, it was our best shot. And we nailed Shastri as well.
Another cow-loving rag head. Gregory, you say you don’t know about
these people. Believe me, they were close to getting a bomb and so
what if they nuked their deadly **** enemies? So what? Too many people
in both countries. Breed like rabbits and full of snake-worshipping
twits. I don’t for the life of me see what the Brits wanted in India .
And then threaten us? They were in the sack with the Russians, I told
you. Maybe they could nuke the Panama Canal or Los Angeles . We don’t
know that for sure but it is not impossible.
JOURNALIST GREGORY DOUGLAS: Who was Shastri?
FORMER CIA OFFICER ROBERT T CROWLEY: A political type who started
the program in the first place. Bhabha was a genius and he could get
things done so we aced both of them. And we let certain people there
know that there was more where that came from. We should have hit the
****** too, while we were at it but they were a tougher target. Did I
tell you about the idea to wipe out Asia ‘s rice crops? We developed a
disease that would have wiped rice off the map there and it’s their
staple diet. The ******* rice growers here got wind of it and raised
such a stink we canned the whole thing. The theory was that the
disease could spread around and hurt their pocketbooks. If the Mao
people invade Alaska , we can tell the rice people it’s all their fault.
JOURNALIST GREGORY DOUGLAS: I suppose we might make friends with
FORMER CIA OFFICER ROBERT T CROWLEY: With the likes of them? Not at
all, Gregory. The only thing the Communists understand is brute force.
India was quieter after Bhabha croaked. We could never get to Mao but
at one time, the Russians and we were discussing the how and when of
the project. Oh yes, sometimes we do business with the other side.
Probably more than you realize.
JOURNALIST GREGORY DOUGLAS: Now that I know about. High level
amorality. They want secrets from us and you give them some of them in
return for some of their secrets, doctored of course. That way, both
agencies get credit for being clever.
FORMER CIA OFFICER ROBERT T CROWLEY: Well, you’ve been in that game
so why be so holy over a bunch of dead ragheads?
JOURNALIST GREGORY DOUGLAS: Were all the passengers Indian atomic
FORMER CIA OFFICER ROBERT T CROWLEY: Who cares, Gregory? We got the
main man and that was all that mattered. You ought not criticize when
you don’t have the whole story.
JOURNALIST GREGORY DOUGLAS: Well, there were too many mountain
goats running around, anyway. Then might have gotten their hands on
some weapons from Atwood and invaded Switzerland .
FORMER CIA OFFICER ROBERT T CROWLEY: You jest but there is truth in
what you say. We had such a weight on us, protecting the American
people, often from themselves I admit. Many of these stories can never
be written, Gregory. And if you try, you had better get your wife to
start your car in the morning.

Dr Homi Jehangir Bhabha died in the Air India Flight 101 air
disaster near Mont Blanc in 1966. Conspiracy theories point to a
sabotage intended at impeding India ‘s nuclear program, but his death
still remains a mystery. The reason for the conspiracy was primarily
the intense pressure by the US and Britain on India not to follow the
Chinese – who exploded in 1964 – in testing a nuclear weapon. Dr.
Bhabha had the technical expertise but not the political backing to go
ahead with a test. His death was also very similar to the death of
Enrico Mattei – the Italian oil magnate who also started work on Italy
‘s 1st nuclear reactor and was allegedly killed by the CIA – by
sabotaging his private airplane.

Air India Flight 101
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Air India Flight 101 was a scheduled Air India passenger flight
that crashed into Mont Blanc in France on the morning of 24 January
On the 24th of January 1966 at 0702 UTC, Air India Flight Number
101, a Boeing 707-437 called ‘Kanchenjunga’ crashed on its regular
route from Mumbai ( Bombay ) to London via Delhi , Beirut and Geneva .
The plane was carrying 106 passengers and 11 crew members. It crashed
into Glacier des Bossons (Bossons Glacier) on the South West face of
Mont Blanc in France . At 4807 meters altitude, Mont Blanc is the
highest summit in Western Europe . There were no survivors. It was
quickly determined that the pilot had made a navigational error while
descending for landing into Geneva .
FLIGHT 101 â 2nd of two similar accidents: It was the second time
such an air disaster had occurred on that part of the mountain, both
crashes involving aircraft operated by Air India. Earlier on 3rd of
November 1950 Air India Super Constellation called the ‘Malabar
Princess,’ carrying 48 passengers and crew had crashed in almost
exactly the same spot killing all on board.
Sequence of Events
The flight to and takeoff from Beirut were routine, except for a
failure of the no. 2 VOR ( VHF Omni-directional Radio Range ). At
07:00 GMT the pilot reported reaching FL190 to Geneva . He was told to
maintain that flight level ‘unless able to descend VMC (Visual
meteorological conditions) one thousand on top’. The pilot confirmed
this and added that they were passing abeam Mont Blanc . The
controller noted that the flight wasn’t abeam Mont Blanc yet and
radioed ‘you have 5 miles to the Mont Blanc ‘, to which the pilot
answered with ‘Roger.’ Flight 101 then started to descend from FL190
until it struck the Mont Blanc at an elevation of 15585 feet.
The victims consisted of 106 passengers and 11 crew. One of the
victims included chairman of the Indian Atomic Energy Commission Dr
Homi Jehangir Bhabha, who was on his way to Vienna. The remaining
passengers were Indian nationals, 46 of whom were sailors and 6 were
The captain of the Air India Boeing 707, who was one of the
airline’s most experienced pilots, had radioed the control tower a few
minutes earlier to report that his instruments were working fine and
the aircraft was flying at 19,000ft (5,791 metres) – at least 3,000 ft
(914 metres) higher than the Mont Blanc summit.
‘The commission concluded that the most likely hypothesis was the
a) The pilot-in-command, who knew on leaving Beirut that one of the
VORs was unserviceable, miscalculated his position in relation to Mont
Blanc and reported his own estimate of this position to the
controller; the radar controller noted the error, determined the
position of the aircraft correctly and passed a communication to the
aircraft which, he believed, would enable it to correct its position.;
b) For want of a sufficiently precise phraseology, the correction
was mis-understood by the pilot who, under the mistaken impression
that he had passed the ridge leading to the summit and was still at a
flight level which afforded sufficient safety clearance over the top
of Mont Blanc, continued his descent.’
The death of our first nationalist and daring PM Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri was not natural. Two conspiracies can be responsible for his death, One is the CIA and KGB objective to rule the world and the second one is the benefit of few politicians within India.
Shastri Ji was the PM of India who tried to make India sustainable by his own production of food and goods. He also initiated and supported the nuclear capabilities of India to be a powerful nation in itself. His simplicity was his greatest asset, whose courage let India come out great difficulties like war and famine.
