Massacre at Jaito (Events)


Massacre at Jaito (1924)

As protest against the interruption of Akhand Path (non-stop recitation of teh scriptures) at Jaito during the Nabha Agitation, batches of 500 Singhs proceeded daily towards Jaito. On February 21, the police opened fire on the group, killing twenty Singhs on the spot and wounding more than one hundred. Nabha Agitation exercised such an impact on the public that even Jawahar Lal Nehru accompanied by Sh. Santnam and Didwani courted imprisonment.
