There is insufficient evidence to prove that Nehru was involved in the loot of the Indian National Army (INA) treasure chest.
Media reports that a two-page secret note authored by R.D. Sathe on November 1, 1951, stated that two aides of Netaji, Rama Murti, and Messrs Ayer were already disposed of the treasure. The remaining INA treasure was secretly brought to India from Japan that was then sealed and consigned to the vaults of the National Museum in Delhi. The following year, Ayer was appointed as adviser for an integrated publicity program for Nehru's Five Year Plan. This appointment of Ayer as an advisor had lead to the speculation that Nehru was included in the treasure loot and had ignored all the warning letters that were written to him. Also, there are no official reports or statements on this matter.
