On the 112th anniversary of the freedom fighter's birthday, people across India are paying tribute to his contributions to society. He was the gem to the nation and his birthday is being celebrated across the country. He was the greatest revolutionist and had a great share in India's struggle for freedom.

He was 21 when he fatally shot a British officer named John Saunders in a case of mistaken identity who he assumed was James Scott, the officer behind the assassination of revolutionary Lala Lajpat Rai.  

He fled Lahore after that, with associates Shivaram Rajguru and Sukhdev Thapar.  Singh, along with Rajguru and Sukhdev, was sentenced to death for conspiring to kill Saunders. He died on 23 March 1931, aged 23.
