He even escaped the police who wanted to capture him. After that, he and Batukeshwar Dutt threw bombs and leaflets in the Central Legislative Assembly.
And then they surrendered, while he was in jail he gained the support of people. He also initiated a hunger strike which was 116 days-the the biggest hunger strike to date.
He demanded equal rights for prisoners the same as European prisoners. He was later hanged for his participation in the assassination of the police officers.
