  • Sukhdev was arrested when police found the bomb factory set up by the Hindustan Socialist Republican Association in Lahore and Saharanpur.
  • Starting with charging Bhagat Singh for a bombing in the assembly, later all the three Sukhdev, Bhagat Singh, and Rajguru were charged and sentenced to death in what is called the Lahore Conspiracy Case.
  • All three were hanged a day before the planned execution on 23 March 1931 at 7:30 PM as the British Government was scared of huge protests. Their bodies were later cremated on the banks of the Sutlej River.

We salute the martyrs who laid their lives for India’s freedom.
