Every year, December 19 is observed as Kakori Martyrs' Day in India to mark the death anniversary of the four famous freedom fighters related to the Kakori Kand. These leaders of the independence revolution of India were hanged for their rebellion by the British Colonisers in the year 1927. Since the execution of Ram Prasad Bismil, Ashfaq Ullah Khan and Roshan Singh took place in Uttar Pradesh, the state government has decided to honour these freedom fighters in a grand way this year.
