Revelation of Japanese "Operation U-Go" by Bose to spy?
In the section "Second INA", the claim is stated that "The British were given advance knowledge about the impending Japanese offensive on its North-eastern frontier by Bhagat Ram Talwar (codenamed "Silver"), a communist double-agent in Kabul and a confidant of Subhas Chandra Bose, after Bose unsuspectingly revealed it to him." This claim is false, and therefore I have deleted it.
This claim is found in only one source: Dr. Sat D. Sharma, India Marching: Reflections from a Nationalist Perspective (Bloomington, Indiana: iUniverse, 2012), pages 120-121. (Note: "iUniverse" is a vanity press.) This claim appears nowhere else.
However, this claim cannot be true.
According to other sources -- see, for example: Bose Mihir, Raj, Secrets, Revolution: A life of Subhas Chandra Bose (Norich, England: Grice Chapman Publishing, 2004), Chapter 17: The man called Silver and the Bose conspiracy -- Bhagat Ram Talwar was a spy for the Soviet Union, Germany, Japan, and (eventually) Britain. In 1941, Talwar arranged Bose's escape from British custody in India and his relocation to Kabul, Afghanistan. Bose then fled across the Soviet Union to Nazi Germany. According to Wikipedia's own article on Bose, thereafter he was in Europe until 1943, at which time he traveled via German submarine to the Far East.
Thus, the only time during which Bose could have betrayed anything to Talwar was during 1941 in Kabul. However, Japan's Operation U-Go was not even conceived until 1943. Therefore, Bose could not have betrayed Operation U-Go to Talwar. Hence I have deleted the claim that Bose betrayed the operation to Talwar. Cwkmail (talk) 12:31, 30 June 2013 (UTC)
