The killing of a traitor Narendranath Goswami & subsequent martyrdom of #SatyendranathBosu.

Remembering a freedom fighter on his janma divas who sacrificed his life for Aurobindo Ghose.

Bosu was born on this day in 1882 at Midnapore, Bengal.

He was a distant relative of
Aurobindo & hailed from a well to do family.

Not much is known about his childhood, but Bosu's name finds in a police report for having an unlicenced gun in Midnapur Arms Case & subsequently served 2 months RI.
Two days after an assassination attempt was carried on Kingsford
The police arrested 33 members of Anushilan Samithi & this trial is famously known as Alipore Bomb Case.

The British wanted to hang Aurobindo Ghosh for his involvement, but lacked evidence.

#NarendranathGoswami turned approver & started giving details about plans, hideouts
Member information's which posed a threat for Revolutionaries.

Barin Ghosh, Shanti Ghosh and Ullaskar Dutta's names were mentioned in attempting to blow off the governor's train at Chandernagore station in 1908; referring to the bomb outrage in the Mayor's house he mentioned
name of Charu Chandra Roy, being the leader of the revolutionary outfit of Chandernagore and on 24 June mentioned names of Aurobindo Ghosh and Subodh Chandra Mullick linking to revolutionary activities.

Barin Ghosh planned to escape from jail & also kill Traitor Goswami, but
Escape was difficult, Barin hatched a new plan & with the help of B C Roy, their lawyer, he procured 2 Guns inside the jail.

Narendranath Goswami was confined at European Ward in Alipore Central Jail, Satyendranath Bosu & Kanhialal Datta made Goswami believe that they too were
turning as approvers & asked him to meet in prison hospital.

As per Barin's plans both Bosu & Datta faked illness & got admitted at hospital before sending Goswami the message.

When Goswami reached hospital, Bosu & Datta shot him from a distance which injured him but not enough
To kill.
Goswami ran & Kanhialal pursued him and shot him to death.

On 31st August 1908, the traitor Goswami was killed.

On 21st October 1908, the court gave death sentence for Kanhaialal & life imprisonment for Bosu.

The British who couldn't prosecute Aurobindo sought death
Of Satyendranath Bosu too & the sessions court judge moved high court though the jury didn't agree with death sentence.

The High Court ordered death for Bosu too.

On 10th November 1908, Kanhaialal was hanged & on 21st November, Satyendranath Bosu was hanged.
