News: Here we will cover different Freedom fighters who were in the news recently.

Who was Matangini Hazra?
• Matangini Hazra was a prominent Indian freedom fighter and a symbol of courage and resilience during the Indian independence movement.
• One of the most iconic events associated with Matangini Hazra is the Tamluk Revolt of 1942. During this protest she led a group of around 6,000 peasants and walked towards the Tamluk police station, carrying the Indian national flag and chanting slogans of independence.
• In the ensuing clash with British authorities, she was shot and killed, becoming a martyr for the cause of Indian independence.

Who was Kanaklata Barua?
• One of the youngest martyrs of the Quit India Movement, Kanaklata Barua has an iconic status in Assam. Barua, then 17, led the Mrityu Bahini, a procession of freedom fighters, to unfurl the Tricolour at Gohpur police station on September 20, 1942.
• When police did not let them move forward, an altercation led to firing, killing Barua at the head of the procession. Her sacrifice and determination in the face of oppressive colonial rule have made her a symbol of courage and inspiration in Assam and throughout India.
• Her memory lives on as a reminder of the sacrifices made by young Indians in the fight for freedom. In 2020, the Coast Guard named a Fast Patrol Vessel (FPV) after her, the ICGS Kanaklata Barua.

• He was immediately apprehended and subsequently stood trial.
• During his trial, Madanlal Dhingra boldly declared his motivations for the assassination, expressing his resentment against British colonial rule and the mistreatment of Indians. He saw his action as a means of drawing global attention to the oppressive rule and urging Indians to unitein their struggle for freedom.
