Gumnami Baba

The last round of cross-verification of items belonging to Gumnami Baba commonly known as Bhagwanji, was retrieved from  treasury of Faizabad of Uttar Pradesh, ending on Friday with the discovery of four unidentified teeth.

A letter from the US Embassy was also found among 40 items of Gumna​m​i Baba found on the final day.

There is a wild assumption that Gumnami Baba is Subhash Chandra Bose.​

Shakti Singh, owner of Ram Bhawan in Faizabad, where Bhagwanji spent his final days, said the teeth were taken from Ram Bhawan but whether they belong to Bhagwanji needs to be ascertained.

The letter dated January 10, 1959 recovered on Friday was sent by the US Foreign Service through the American Embassy, New Delhi. The letter was sent in the context of United States Trade Mission.

Besides, many letters related to the Khosla Commission were also recovered. An original copy of the summons issued to Suresh Bose (Netaji’s brother) by the commission dating back to August 4, 1972, was also retrieved the same day.​

Sources say that now a technical committee, headed by a retired judge of High Court​ would start its work after the festival of Holi ​to ascertain the reality of Gumnami Baba.
