New Delhi, Aug 5 (IANS) Rare documents relating to Rabindranath Tagore, Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose and other great historical and literary giants are intact in the Kolkata-based National Library, the government clarified Tuesday. R. Ramachandran, director-in-charge of the National Library, said: “No such documents relating to Rabindranath Tagore, Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, Sarat Chandra Chatterjee and Sarojini Naidu are missing or stolen from the library.”
He was reacting to a media report that rare books, manuscripts and letters associated with these historical figures have been stolen from the library.
“The rare books division of the library maintains catalogues of its holdings, which is the necessary record of the collection. No departure has been found between the records and actual collection,” he said in a release issued here by the culture ministry.
Ramachandran also denied there were “financial irregularities in procuring books or serials”.
