BBCThe scene of the Air India crash near the summit of Mont Blanc: 117 die in Air India Scene of the crashHomi Bhabha
Up to 117 people have been killed after an Air India Boeing 707 crashed near the summit of Mont Blanc in the Alps.The plane was on a regular Bombay to New York flight when the accident happened at around 0800 local time.All 106 passengers and 11 crew were killed on the aircraft as it prepared to land at Geneva airport in Switzerland.

One of the victims included chairman of the Indian Atomic Energy Commission

Dr Homi Jehangir Bhabha, who was on his way to Vienna.
The remaining passengers were Indian nationals, 46 of whom were sailors. Six were British.
The cause of the crash is not yet known and it is expected to take several days before all of the bodies are recovered.The plane was a few minutes behind schedule as it was preparing to make its descent.But the captain of the Air India Boeing 707, who was one of the airline's most experienced pilots, had radioed the control tower a few minutes earlier to report that his instruments were working fine and the aircraft was flying at 19,000ft (5,791 metres) - at least 3,000ft (514 metres) higher than the Mont Blanc summit.Shortly after, the plane crashed into the mountain.
by B.Raman:-The National Security Agency (NSA) of the US Defence Department was set up on November 1,1952, to unify all clandestine activities for the collection of foreign communications intelligence (COMINT) through the interception of foreign wireless and telephone networks.Its charter was expanded in 1971 to cover clandestine collection of foreign electronic (ELINT) and telemetric (TELINT) intelligence. It thus became the USA's SIGINT set-up covering COMINT, ELINT and TELINT.The next year, it was entrusted with the exclusive responsibility for SIGCOUNTERINT--that is, protection of the US Govt's SIGINT assets from foreign penetration and development and protection of the cryptologic systems used by the US Govt. For this purpose, a Central Security Service (CSS) was created as part of the NSA.In the 1990s, the Clinton Administration further expanded the NSA's charter to include CYBERINT and CYBERCOUNTERINT too--that is clandestine collection of intelligence from foreign computer networks and protection of US Govt. networks from foreign penetration.(The writer is Additional Secretary (retd), Cabinet Secretariat, Govt. of India, and, presently, Director, Institute for Topical Studies, Chennai.

Here is some history regarding relations between India and the NWO.
There are two articles -
the first is about the bombing of an Air India flight from Canada with the apparent complicity of Canadian Intelligence[Air India Flight 182 was an Air India flight operating on the Montreal–London–Delhi route. On 23 June 1985-click and read wiki:-.]

Air India Flight 182

The aircraft involved landing at London Heathrow Airport on 10 June 1985, 13 days before the explosion
The second article is an interview of Robert Trumbull Crowley (1924 - 2000), who was second in command of the CIA's Directorate of Operations, which was in charge of covert operations. Crowley talks about the assassinations of Homi Bhabha, a brilliant Parsi physicist who was the first head of India's Department of Atomic Energy, and of Lal Bahadur Shastri, who was India's Prime Minister from 1964 to 1966. Both these hits were a part of a failed attempt to stop India from developing nuclear capability. India conducted its first nuclear test in 1974.

The "gadzillion" allegations in the blog appear to take them to the farthest boundaries of the universe of conspiracy theories.Having said that there are some very interesting points mentioned about historical events.

First,the death of Dr.Homi Bhabha in an air crash,still a mystery ("He died when Air India Flight 101 crashed near Mont Blanc in January 1966. Conspiracy theories point to a sabotage by the CIA intended at impeding India's nuclear program, but his death still remains a mystery.")came at a time when he publicly said that India could produce a nuclear device in a short time.The crash reportedly took place in the Swiss Alps near Mt.Blanc and no debris was ever found.

Now this crash bears similarities to another infamous incident,that of the bombing of the Air India "Kashmir Princess",which was to have taken the Chinese premier,Chou-En-Lai to the Bandung Conference in Indonesia.Chou ,through his agents in Taiwan got wind of the plot ,which was perpetrated by Koumintang agents who placed the bomb aboard the aircraft at Hong Kong airport,the British displaying a "Nelsonian" eye.The bomb was actually transported to Hong Kong by CIA agents who reportedly picked it up from the US embassy in Delhi! Unfortunately for the plotters,Chou changed plans at the last moment and due to a delay in schedule,there were survivors of the crash.
("Steve Tsang of Oxford University wrote in the September 1994 edition of China Quarterly, "Evidence now suggests that Zhou knew of the plot beforehand and secretly changed his travel plans, though he did not stop a decoy delegation of lesser cadres from taking his place.")
Had there been no survivors,this "accident" would've met the same fate as that of the aircraft carrying Dr.Homi Bhabha.Some interesting facts from Wik:

(The day after the crash, China's Foreign Ministry issued a statement that described the bombing as "a murder by the special service organizations of the United States and Chiang Kai-shek" while Hong Kong Governor Sir Alexander Grantham maintained that the plane was not tampered with in Hong Kong. However, on 26 May, an Indonesian board of inquiry later announced that a time bomb with an American-made MK-7 detonator was responsible for the crash and it was highly probable that the bomb was installed in Hong Kong.

The Hong Kong authorities offered HK$100,000 for information leading to the arrest of those responsible. They questioned 71 people connected with the servicing of the Air India flight. When police began to focus on Chow Tse-ming, a janitor for Hong Kong Aircraft Engineering Co., he stowed away to Taiwan on a CIA-owned Civil Air Transport aircraft.

The Hong Kong police concluded that the Kuomintang had recruited Chow to plant the bomb to kill Zhou Enlai. Apparently, he had bragged to friends about his role in the bombing, and had also spent large amounts of money before he left Hong Kong. The Hong Kong Police tried to extradite Chow, but Taiwan refused and denied that Chow was a KMT agent.)
CIA Involvement:
(In 1966, a U.S. Senate committee investigating CIA operations heard testimony that gave murky details of a CIA plot to assassinate an "East Asian leader" attending a 1955 Asian conference. That leader's identity would remain unknown until 1977, when William Corson, a retired U.S. Marine Corps intelligence officer who served in Asia, published Armies of Ignorance identifying that leader as Zhou Enlai.

On 24 October 1967, a CIA agent John Discoe Smith defected to the Soviet Union. There, Smith accounted many of his operations in his memoirs, entitled I Was an Agent of the CIA, including his delivery of a mysterious bag to a KMT agent. He says that in 1955, Jack Curran, a CIA officer attached to the U.S. Embassy in New Delhi, asked him to deliver a bag to a Wang Feng at the Maidens Hotel in the Indian capital. Smith claimed that the bag contained the bomb used to sabotage Kashmir Princess.)

India diplomatic bag found in French Alps after 46 years

This undated handout picture shows a diplomatic bag reading "Diplomatic mail" and "Ministry of external affairs" belonging to the Indian Government after it was found at the Bossons Glacier, near the Mont Blanc in the French Alps, on August 21, 2012. The bag contained mail from India's foreign ministry

A bag carrying diplomatic mail from India has been found on Mont Blanc in the French Alps, close to where an Air India plane crashed 46 years ago.
The jute bag was recovered by a mountain rescue worker and his neighbour after some tourists spotted it on a glacier last week.
The Indian embassy in Paris told the AFP news agency that it would begin efforts to retrieve the bag.
The Air India plane flying from Mumbai to New York crashed in January 1966.
All 117 people on board died.
The bag recovered from the glacier has markings saying "Diplomatic mail" and "Ministry of External Affairs", as the foreign ministry is called in India.
"Some tourists came and told us they had seen something shining on the Bossons glacier," rescue worker Arnaud Christmann told AFP.
'A dump' "We found pieces of the cabin, a shoe, cables - it's a real dump up there!"
Mr Christmann said the diplomatic bag was "sitting as if someone had just placed it there".
"We were hoping for diamonds or at least a few gold ingots. Instead we got some soaking wet mail and Indian newspapers," he said.
"It's not the sort of thing you find very often in the mountains - the mail's going to arrive 46 years late."
The bag has been handed over to the police in the town of Chamonix at the base of the mountain.
The Indian embassy in Paris said on Wednesday that it had not been informed of the discovery but officials would be looking into it to recover the bag.


Dr. Sarabhai died on December 30, 1971 at Kovalam, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala. In a befitting honour to this great Scientist, Thumba Equatorial Rocket Launching Station (TERLS) and associated space establishments at Thiruvananthapuram were renamed as the Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre which has grown into a major space research centre of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). In 1974, International Astronomical Union at Sydney decided that a Moon Crater BESSEL in the Sea of Serenity will be known as the Sarabhai Crater. (PIB Features)
During his last days, he was under a great amount of stress due to excessive travelling and a huge work-load which adversely affected his health. He did not wake up to celebrate the New Year. He died in his sleep at Halcyon Castle and was apparently a victim of a silent heart attack.

The Leela Kovalam Beach Resort

Death came to Vikram Sarabhai in a quiet room of his favourite resort on Kovalam beach after he had witnessed firing of a Russian rocket and inaugurated Thumba railway station to retire for the night.

Strange that there was no scientific inquiry on this celebrated scientist's death.

Amrita Shah, in her book Vikram Sarabhai - a life' mentions about murmurs of international foul play'. Kamla Chaudhary, a close associate of Vikrambhai at IIM-A is quoted saying, "Vikram had told me that he was being watched by both Americans and Russians."

"The whole process would have been quite unpleasant," says his son Kartikeya, when asked about carrying out an inquest. "It was my grandmother, Sarladevi's decision not to have a postmortem," he adds.

Mallika, then 17, was shooting for her first film at Mumbai. "When Amma told me, I first thought it was a plane crash because papa's medical reports were fine," says Mallika who later lit his pyre something that came quite naturally to the Sarabhais

The Boeing 707, named "Kanchenjunga", operated on a flight from Mumbai (Bombay) to London via Delhi, Beirut and Geneva. The flight to and takeoff from Beirut where routine, except for a failure of the no. 2 VOR. At 07:00 GMT the pilot reported reaching FL190 to Geneva ACC. He was told to maintain that flight level "unless able to descend VMC one thousand on top". The pilot confirmed this and added that they were passing abeam Mont Blanc. The controller noted that the flight wasn't abeam Mont Blanc yet and radioed "you have 5 miles to the Mont Blanc", to which the pilot answered with "Roger." Flight 101 then started to descend from FL190 until it struck the Mont Blanc at an elevation of 15585 feet.

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The commission concluded that the most likely hypothesis was the following: a) The pilot-in-command, who knew on leaving Beirut that one of the VORs was unserviceable, miscalculated his position in relation to Mont Blanc and reported his own estimate of this position to the controller; the radar controller noted the error, determined the position of the aircraft correctly and passed a communication to the aircraft which, he believed, would enable it to correct its position.; b) For want of a sufficiently precise phraseology, the correction was mis-understood by the pilot who, under the mistaken impression that he had passed the ridge leading to the summit and was still at a flight level which afforded sufficient safety clearance over the top of Mont Blanc, continued his descent."

Air India 101 conspiracy theory update: debris pictures September 16, 2011

Posted by David Cenciotti in Aviation, aviation safety, civilian aviation, Military Aviation.
On Apr. 21, 2009 I’ve published an article about the Air India 101 that crashed into the Mount Blanc in 1966. Quite surprisingly, that post remains one of the most commented of this blog.
Since then, Daniel Roche, the French aviation enthusiast who has been researching this topic since many years and has conducted several expeditions on the crash site [collecting 5 tonne (?!?!) of plane parts], has sent me emails with pictures that, according to him, would prove his theory of a collision with an Italian fighter jet.
I’ve already written in my previous article what I think about the crash. Plane crash investigations require experts in various fields. They must be performed in accordance with specific procedures and protocols, that cover also how evidences must be collected and preserved. So, regardless what Daniel believes, I still think the official report of the French BEA says it all about the reasons of the crash of the Air India 101 flight.
Furthermore, I don’t like conspiracy theories very much.
However, the last pictures Daniel has sent to me are quite interesting because they show some aircraft parts he has found on the glacier. Text on the debris is English, suggesting an American fighter. I don’t know where he actually found them and I haven’t checked yet if another US or Italian plane has crashed in the same area but I’m curious to hear from any of this weblog’s readers who is able to identify the type of aircraft that parts and tank (?) belong to.


1. Righardt - September 16, 2011
I think I found your USAF angle. See attached article:
Look at the last line: In 1950 an Air India Lockheed Super Constellation on a charter flight had crashed at almost the same location with the loss of 48 crew and passengers.”
Could this be the Super Constellation parts?

SWITZERLAND 3 Nov 2010 Recent find highlights mystery of Air India crash 60 years ago

On 3 Nov 1950, the Malabar Princess, an Air India plane on the Bombay-London route with 48 passengers, began its descent to Geneva airport for a stop-over. The four-motor propeller plane crashed instead into the face of the Rochers de la Tournette on Mont Blanc, almost the exact site on Europe's highest mountain as another Air India crash some 16 years later. There were no Malabar Princess survivors, but almost 60 years later, some of its mail finally can be delivered.
In both accidents, the planes shattered into millions of pieces that littered the French and the Italian faces of Mont Blanc. A blue mail bag on the Malabar Princess survived and was found with its contents some 1.5 miles below the crash site by a Scottish university group in July. It had been carried down the mountain by a flowing glacier in the 60 years since the crash. The Scotsman reported in July that conservationists from the university are working to restore the correspondence, which includes family letters and birthday cards, before sending them on to the original authors or their relatives.
While the majority of the mail consists of invoices and business letters for the cotton trade, other letters provide a poignant reminder of that moment in history. One refers to the unveiling of a statue of Mahatma Gandhi, while another, written in the early weeks of the Korean War, states: "It would appear at present there is nothing to worry about in the Korean situation."
The search for survivors on the mountain's icy slopes was a major international story, and the lost correspondence was the crux of a 2001 French movie, Amelie.
The Malabar Princess crash and the crash of Air India's Kanchenjunga on 24 Jan 1966, which carried 117 passengers, have never been explained. There were no human survivors from the second crash, but several monkeys from a cargo of laboratory animals were seen walking about in the snow.
For the last 20 years, relics of the two accidents -- bits of metal, wires, etc -- have issued from the terminal tongue of the Bossons glacier.

Iran and the undeclared campaign

Iranian security forces at the scene of Mostafa Ahmadi-Roshan's killingThe killing of Mostafa Ahmadi-Roshan is similar to previous attacks on Iranian scientists
The assassination on Wednesday of another Iranian nuclear scientist may now prompt Iran to try to respond in kind.
The murder in Tehran of Mostafa Ahmadi-Roshan is the fourth such attack on Iran's scientists in just two years.
It comes on top of a sophisticated cyber sabotage programme and two mysterious explosions at Iranian military bases, one of which in November killed the general known as 'the godfather' of Iran's ballistic missile programme.
No-one is claiming responsibility for these attacks but Iran blames its longstanding enemy, Israel, and occasionally the US.
Whoever is behind them, Iran is clearly being subjected to an undeclared campaign to slow down its nuclear programme, which the West and Israel suspect is aimed at developing an atomic bomb.
The latest Iranian scientist to die was killed by a magnetic bomb, attached to his car, a Peugeot 405, by two men on a motorbike.
Whoever was targeting him clearly knew his route, his car and his timings.
The small, professionally made device was designed to kill its victim but cause only limited damage to the surroundings.
It bears a striking similarity to the bomb used in November 2010 to kill another nuclear scientist, Majid Shahriari.

Attacks on Iranian scientists

Jan 2012 - Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, a professor at the Technical University of Tehran, died after bomb was placed on his car by a motorcyclist
Nov 2010 - Majid Shahriari, member of nuclear engineering faculty at Shahid Beheshti University, killed in Tehran after bomb attached to his car by motorcyclist in Tehran. Another scientist, Fereydoon Abbasi Davani - future head of the Atomic Energy Organisation of Iran - is hurt in a separate attack
Jan 2010 - Massoud Ali Mohammadi, a physics professor, died when a motorcycle rigged with explosives exploded near his car
A motorbike bomb killed a physics professor earlier that year and another device narrowly missed killing the man tipped to be the next head of Iran's Atomic Energy Organisation.
'Decapitation strategy'
Mostafa Ahmadi-Roshan, who was killed on Wednesday, was both a university lecturer and a senior supervisor at the Natanz uranium enrichment facility.
In such a secretive country as Iran it is hard to determine how much difference, if any, his death will make to the accelerating nuclear programme which experts in the West believe may now have overcome many of the earlier obstacles to building a bomb.
"It's conceivable it could have an impact on retarding the programme", says Mark Fitzpatrick, an expert on nuclear proliferation at the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) in London.
"There are a few key technical areas that Iran has not yet mastered... so a decapitation strategy is an effective measure for retarding this process. But it may be that Iran is beyond this point".
So who is behind this undeclared campaign?
No-one is putting their hand up, but Israel has made no secret of its delight at any setbacks to Iran's nuclear programme, which it fears may soon become a threat to its existence.
In the past its officials have either denied any part in the attacks or refused to comment. But Israel's overseas intelligence agency Mossad is believed to have one of the best networks of informants and operatives in the Middle East.
In 2011 an Iranian confessed to being recruited by Mossad to assassinate a scientist earlier in the year, although coerced confessions are commonplace in Iran.
Iranian president Mahmoud AhmadinejadPresident Ahmadinejad insists that Iran's nuclear programme is for peaceful purposes
The Stuxnet computer virus, stealthily introduced into Iran's nuclear programme in 2009 and which wreaked temporary damage on its centrifuges, is believed to be the work of US, Israeli and possibly British cyber experts.
So far, Iran has not responded to these attacks, other than loudly condemning them and vowing to continue its nuclear programme.
But this latest killing could prove to be the proverbial straw on the camel's back, prompting Iran's powerful intelligence agency Etilaat and Revolutionary Guards Quds force to carry out some attacks of their own overseas.
If they wanted to retaliate against the US they certainly have enough operatives in Iraq and Afghanistan to make life difficult for the Americans there.
Striking out at Israel's nuclear scientists would be harder - they are said to be well guarded and Israeli intelligence has been bracing for some kind of Iranian reaction.
Sir Richard Dalton, Britain's Ambassador to Iran from 2002 to 2006 and now an associate fellow at the UK think tank, Chatham House, believes the undeclared campaign against Iran's nuclear scientists is entering a dangerous phase.
"The next step is for Iran to answer like for like" says Dalton.
"If a state is behind this then this is international state terrorism and it's inviting a response. It looks like a further twist that will lead to a tit-for-tat".

Iran says CIA behind nuclear scientist's killing

Published January 14, 2012
| Associated Press
Iran said Saturday it has evidence that the United States was behind the assassination of an Iranian nuclear scientist this week in Tehran, state media reported.
Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan was killed in a brazen daylight assassination Wednesday when two assailants on a motorcycle attached a magnetic bomb to his car in the Iranian capital. The killing bore a strong resemblance to earlier killings of scientists working on the Iranian nuclear program, and has prompted calls in Iran for retaliation against those deemed responsible.
The IRNA state news agency said Saturday that Iran's Foreign Ministry has sent a diplomatic letter to the U.S. saying that it has "evidence and reliable information" that the CIA provided "guidance, support and planning" to assassins "directly involved" in Roshan's killing.
The U.S. has denied any role in the assassination.
Iran delivered the letter to the Swiss Embassy in Tehran, which looks after U.S. interests in the country. Iran and the U.S. have had no diplomatic relations since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
IRNA also reported that Iran delivered a letter to Britain accusing London of having an "obvious role" in the killing. It said that a series of assassinations began after British intelligence chief John Sawers hinted in 2010 at intelligence operations against the Islamic Republic.
British media have quoted Sawers as saying that intelligence-led operations were needed to make it more difficult for countries like Iran to develop nuclear weapons.
Britain's Foreign Office has condemned the killing of civilians. Israeli officials, in contrast, have hinted at covert campaigns against Iran without directly admitting involvement.
The killing has sparked outrage in Iran, and state TV broadcast footage Saturday of hundreds of students marching in Tehran to condemn Roshan's death and calling for the continuation of the country's disputed nuclear program.
The U.S. and its allies fear Iran's program aims to develop nuclear weapons. Iran denies the charges, and says its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only.
In the clearest sign yet that Iran is preparing to strike back for Roshan's killing, Gen. Masoud Jazayeri, the spokesman for Iran's Joint Armed Forces Staff, was quoted by the semiofficial ISNA news agency Saturday as saying that Tehran was "reviewing the punishment" of "behind-the-scene elements" involved in the assassination.
"Iran's response will be a tormenting one for supporters of state terrorism," he said, without elaborating. "The enemies of the Iranian nation, especially the United States, Britain and the Zionist regime, or Israel, have to be held responsible for their activities."
Jazayeri also accused the International Atomic Energy Agency of being partially to blame, saying that the U.N. nuclear watchdog made public a list of Iranian nuclear scientists and officials that "has provided the possibility of their identification and targeting by spy networks."

Climber finds treasure trove in packets stamped 'Made in India' off Mont Blanc

ALBERTVILLE (France): A French climber scaling a glacier off Mont Blanc got more than satisfaction for his efforts when he stumbled across a treasure trove of emeralds, rubies and sapphires that had been buried for decades.

The jewels, estimated to be worth up to 246,000 euros ($332,000), lay hidden in a metal box that was on board an Indian plane that crashed in the desolate landscape some 50 years ago.

The climber turned the haul in to local police. "This was an honest young man who very quickly realized that they belonged to someone who died on the glacier," local gendarmerie chief Sylvain Merly told AFP.

"He could have kept them but he preferred to give them to the police," Merly said, adding that the climber stumbled upon the box earlier this month and that some of the sachets containing the precious stones bore the stamp "Made in India".

French authorities are contacting their Indian counterparts to trace the owner or heirs of the jewels.

Under French law, the jewellery could be handed over to the mountaineer if these are not identified, Merly said.

Two Air India planes crashed into Mont Blanc in 1950 and in 1966. Climbers routinely find debris, baggage and human remains.

In September last year, India took possession of a bag of diplomatic mail from the Kangchenjunga, a Boeing 707 flying from Mumbai which crashed on the southwest face of Mont Blanc on January 24, 1966.

The crash killed 117 people including the pioneer of India's nuclear programme Homi Jehangir Bhabha.
