Lalmohan Sen

Who
was
Lalmohan
Sen?

Lalmohan
Sen
was
born
in
the
Muchhapur
village
of
Chattagram
in
undivided
Bengal,
off
the
coast
of
Chittagong,
in
the
district
of
Noakhali,
in
a
Bengali
Hindu
Kayastha
family
around
1912.
Not
much
known
about
his
early
life
and
education
except
that
he
had
taken
up
medicine
in
his
higher
studies
till
he
was
drawn
to
drawn
into
the
revolutionary
activities
of
the
Indian
Republican
Army,
led
by
Surya
Sen,
best
known
for
leading
the
1930
Chittagong
armoury
raid.

As
per
the
available
information
about
him,
on
18
April
1930,
Sen
was
given
the
overall
charge
of
overthrowing
the
railway
tracks
to
isolate
Chattagram
from
the
rest
of
the
country.
He
successfully
completed
the
mission.

However,
he
was
arrested
later
that
year
and
sent
to
the
Chattagram
Jail
to
face
trial
by
the
Special
Tribunal,
which
sentenced
him
to
transmigration
for
life
with
rigorous
imprisonment.

After
spending
sixteen
years
in
the
Andaman
Cellular
Jail
and
other
jails,
he
was
finally
released
on
parole
from
Dhaka
jail
in
1946.
He
settled
in
his
native
village
in
Noakhali.
Unfortunately,
he
was
stabbed
to
death
by
the
communally
frenzied
goons,
while
he
was
trying
to
stop
a
conflict
during
the
Noakhali
riot.

As
India
celebrates
Azadi
Ka
Amrit
Mahotsav
to
make
75
years
of
Independence,
it
is
time
to
acknowledge
and
honour
such
people
who
contributed
to
the
Indian
freedom
movement,
yet
are
anonymous
to
the
masses
today.
