Rajguru (1908-1931) was a brave revolutionary leader from aharashtra. He was involved in several underground activities aimed at overthrowing the British. Angered at the death of Lala Lajpat Rai due to lathi charge of police during an anti-Simon procession, Rajguru (along with his associates—Bhagat Singh and Chandra Shekhar Azad) assassinated inspector Saunders on December 17, 1928 in Lahore. (Saunders was responsible for the lathi charge.) Rajguru was arrested in September, 1929 and was tried as one of the main accused in the Lahore Conspiracy Case. He was sentenced to death and died on the gallows in the Lahore Central Jail on March 23, 1931.
