Markandey Katju, former Supreme Court Judge took to Twitter on 14 September and called Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose a 'Japanese agent' and Rabindranath Tagore a 'British stooge'.
In a series of three tweets, he mentioned that he will be giving a speech in some university or institution and launch a scathing attack on both of them.

Katju is known for making several controversial statements in the past. Earlier in March, he said that Gandhi was objectively a British agent who did great harm to India.
