Who was Udham Singh

Who was Udham Singh
•He born in Sunam in Punjab’s Sangrur district in 1899.
•He was a political activist who got associated with the Ghadar Party while in the US.
•In 1934, Singh made his way to London with the purpose of assassinating O’Dwyer, who in 1919 had been the Lieutenant Governor of Punjab and unsurprisingly, Singh considered O’Dwyer to be responsible for the massacre.
Instead of Dyer, who instructed his men to open fire at the crowd gathered in Jallianwala Bagh, O’Dwyer is considered to be the actual perpetrator, since Dyer could not have executed it without his permission.
•He was sentenced to death and was hanged on July 31, 1940 at Pentonville Prison
