On February 27, 1941, the British had intercepted and decoded an Italian telegram that suggested that Bose might be in Kabul. Also The British Special Operations group had informed their representatives in the middle East that Bose was to travel from Afghanistan to Germany via Iran, Iraq and Turkey.
