    Over eight decades after his hanging,
    Lahore police searched the records of
    the Anarkali police station and found
    the original FIR
    Bhagat Singh’s name was not
    mentioned in the FIR for the murder of
    a British police officer here in 1928, the
    Lahore police have found, in a major
    boost to prove the legendary freedom
    fighter’s innocence in the case 83
    years after his execution.
    Imtiaz Rashid Qureshi, chairman of the
    Bhagat Singh Memorial Foundation,
    had filed a petition seeking an attested
    copy of the First Information Report
    (FIR) registered against Bhagat Singh,
    Sukhdev and Rajguru for allegedly
    killing the then SSP John P Saunders.
    Bhagat Singh was awarded the death
    sentence for killing Saunders and was
    hanged at Shadman Chowk in Lahore
    in 1931, aged just 23.

    If his name is not on the FIR, then why was he hanged.
