Udham Singh was convicted and hanged during the year 1940 for slaughtering Dwyer.

Dr Navtej Singh, the author of ‘Challenge to Imperial Hegemony’ (1998) stated, “He was actually abroad on the fateful day.”

As per Dr Navtej’s study, Udham Singh worked in the North Western Railway from the year 1917 to the year 1922 and pocketed the India General Service award for the Waziristan drive of 1919-20.

“He did return to the holy city a few months after the momentous incident, which undoubtedly influenced him deeply and determined the course of his life,” Dr. Singh added.
