This book traces a fascinating journey of a journalist who set out to discover Shaheed Bhagat Singh’s pistol, lost not only in the realms of time but government records also. It is a gripping tale of over eight decades long journey of the weapon, a .32 US Colt pistol, used by Shaheed  Bhagat Singh to gun down British Police officer, JP Saunders outside Lahore Police station on December 17, 1928. After Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev were sentenced to death, the pistol and other case properties were handed over to the Lahore Police to be kept at the Fire Arms Bureau at Police Training School (now Academy), Phillaur in Jalandhar district. That was the last written record about the pistol. The weapon was, however, not seen in Phillaur or elsewhere. In an exemplary journalistic investigation, Jupinderjit Singh brought the pistol of the much revered hero of India out of oblivion. At the same time the writer has delved deeper into Bhagat Singh’s idea of non-violence.


Jupinderjit Singh is an award winning journalist, writer and author based in Chandigarh, Punjab. This is his third book.
