" It is not often that one comes across an international mystery thriller at the highest level of world leaders, a sort of super-who-dunnit in this case featuring, President Soekarno of Indonesia Prime Minister Nehru of India and Chou-en Lai of Communist China in a dastardly act of mass murder.The incident is the act of sabotage that caused the crash of the chartered Air-India International Super-Constellation, the Kashmir Princes,carrying a party of Communist Chinese journalists to the first non- aligned Summit Conference at Bandung, Indonesia, in April 1955. "The case was solved because of he meticulous investigation carried out by an inquiry commission appointed by the Government of Indonesia, and the co- operation freely offered by Air India officials, British officials in Hong Kong and by ships of the Royal Navy and the Navy of Indonesia."
