Shiv ram Hari Rajguru' was an Indian revolutionary from Maharashtra He is best known as an accomplice of Bhagat Singh and Sukhdev in the killing of a British police officer J.P. Saunders at Lahore in 1928 in order to take revenge for the death of veteran leader Lala Lajpat Rai due to excessive police beating. All three were convicted of the crime and hanged on March 23, 1931.
Rajguru had fearless spirit and indomitable courage. The only object of his adoration and worship was his motherland for whose liberation he considered no sacrifice too great. Rajguru was a good shot and was regarded as the gunman of the party. He took part in various activities of the revolutionary movement, at the time of his martyrdom; Rajguru was hardly twenty- three years of age.
