The Mukherjee Commission report, which probed the disappearance of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose was tabled in the Lok Sabha on Wednesday.
Minister of State for Home S Regupathy tabled the report of one-man commission Manoj Mukherjee, a retired judge of the Supreme Court, who was asked in 1999 to carry out the probe by the Calcutta High Court.
The United Progressive Alliance government has, however, rejected the report.
The report says that Bose did not die in a plane crash in Japan in 1945 as has been believed for over six decades and that the ashes in Renkoji temple near Tokyo did not belong to the founder of the Indian National Army.
The report also wants a thorough probe into the so-called Russian connection in the controversy, which says that Bose had survived the Second World War and had, in fact, been detained in a Siberian camp thereafter.
This was the third panel constituted to probe the disappearance of Bose.
