Remembering India's hero, Chandra Shekhar Azad, on his 87th death anniversary

New Delhi: February 27, 2018, marks the 87th death anniversary of the Indian revolutionary Chandra Shekhar Azad.

Azad was killed on this day in 1931 in Alfred Park, Allahabad after an associate betrayed him. For quite some time, he held the well-armed police that circled him at bay, single-handedly with a small pistol and a few cartridges.

However, left with just one bullet, he shot himself in the head and lived up to his resolve that he would never be arrested and dragged to the gallows to be hanged.
