Chandra Shekhar Azad, also spelt as Chandrasekhar, was born on July 23, 1906, in a small Madhya Pradesh village of Bhavra in the Jhabua district. He was only 15 when he was terribly moved by the Britishers, killing thousands of innocent Indians at Jhalianwala Bag in Punjab. It was at the time when he decided to join India’s independence movement. He was jailed several times for his protest against the British raj.

He died on this day in 1931 during an encounter with the British. The police surrounded him at the Alfred Park after one of his old companions turned a traitor and informed Azad’s presence there. He was wounded in the process of defending himself and Sukhdev Raj. His actions made it possible for Sukhdev Raj to escape, but he could not. He shot himself after being surrounded by the police. On his 90th death anniversary, netizens took to Twitter, remembering one of the bravest freedom fighter, Chandra Shekhar Azad.
