Friday - April 13, 2018 11:10 am , Category : WTN SPECIAL

April 13 (WTN) - Ninety nine years ago on 13 April 1919, troops of the British Indian Army under the command of Colonel Reginald Dyer fired bullets on a crowd of Baishakhi pilgrims, who had gathered in Jallianwala Bagh, Amritsar, Punjab. Hundreds of pilgrims were massacred.The victims had no place to escape as the only narrow entrance was blocked by the troops.

In 1940, freedom fighter  Udham Singh, who had witnessed the Jallianwala Bagh massacre in Amritsar, shot and killed Michael O'Dwyer, the British Lieutenant-Governor of Punjab at the time of the massacre, who had approved Dyer's action and was believed to have been the main planner.

WTN pays humble tributes & homage to the innocent martyrs of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre, one of the worst mass massacre in the history of Indian struggle for freedom. We should never forget their sacrifice for the countrymen.

Here is how the country has payed homage-
