HC Deb 27 January 1947 vol 432 cc104-5W
Sir R. Glyn

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India what were the arrangements, and by whom were they authorised, for the release from arrest in Berlin of four Indians, Brijlal Mukerjee, Anjit Singh, Dr. Kudas Faruqui and Habibur Rahman; on what charges were they kept in prison; when were they brought to trial; and by what means and at whose expense are they returning to India.

Mr. A. Henderson

The four men named were among a number of Indian civilians found in Germany by the British military authorities and apprehended on account of collaboration with the enemy during the war. They were subsequently released at the request of the Government of India; no formal charges have been raised against them. Their repatriation to India is being made at their own request in accordance with arrangements made by the High Commission for India, in consultation with the India Office and with the Indian Military Mission in Berlin, under the authority, and at the expense, of the Government of India.
