On 23 March 1931, Bhagat Singh was executed along with Sukhdev and Rajguru after they shot dead a British military officer John Saunders. The trio mistook Saunders to be JA Scott, a police officer who was believed to have struck Lala Lajpat Rai a fatal blow in October 1928.

Eighty-six years later, 23 March is continued to be observed as Martyrs’ Day to mark the death anniversary of the three freedom fighters and revolutionaries. Social media is flooded with messages of patriotism and 'Shaheed Diwas', 'Bhagat Singh' and 'Rajguru' emerged as top trends on Twitter.
