Forty years after the fatal accident, the death of Homi Bhabha, the father of India’s nuclear programme, still remains an enigma. “It is to me an enigma and a mystery,” BJP leader L K Advani said in the Lok Sabha on Wednesday referring to the death of Bhabha in an air accident. The plane carrying Bhabha had crashed into Mount Blanc in Europe on January 24, 1966. He said the then Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri died in Tashkent on January 11, 1966 after a pact with Pakistan to end the 1965 war and within two weeks Bhabha died in a plane accident. “It makes me wonder was it just an accident.”
