Bhagat Singh was hanged to death on March 23, 1931. Singh was hanged an hour ahead of the official time Bhagat Singh was secretly cremated on the banks of the river Sutlej by jail authorities March 23 is marked as his martyrdom day.

He wrote a 404 page diary between September 1929 till the day before he was hung on March 23 1931.

On June 12, 1929 Bhagat Singh and BK Dutt both were convicted by court under Section 307 of the Indian Penal Code and under the Explosives Act.

Still we are using same Indian Penal Code.

Trial Court, then Sessions Court convicted them.
Then their appeal in the Punjab High Court at Lahore was dismissed by a two-judge bench on 13 January 1930 though the court acknowledged Singh to be ‘a sincere revolutionary’.

Up to 14 June 1929, Bhagat Singh and Dutt both were given facilities of reading and good food.
But after their conviction both were transferred to Mianwali and Lahore jails of Punjab as ordinary criminal convicts and their facilities were withdrawn.

Pay attention – They got treatment of ordinary criminal , Even no other political party including congress thought on this point Ordinary Criminal not a Political Prisoner.
