Important Historical Case :

BHUSAWAL BOMB TRIAL -- While investigation in the revolutionary activity of Hindustan Socialist Republican Army was going in Punjab, Chandrashekhar ''Azad'', Sadashiv Raghunath Malkapurkar (Age 21) Bhagwandas Tulsidas Mahaur and others went underground. On instructions of Chandrashekhar ''Azad'', Malkapurkar and Mahaur started for Akola with two live bombs, two pistols, cartridges and explosives for meeting Shivram Hari Rajguru. At Bhusawal railway station they were stopped by Inspector of Excise. Bhagwan Mahaur concealed one pistol. When the police tried to apprehend, Mahaur tried to escape by shooting from automatic pistol, but in vain. Malkapurkar was caught when fell while crossing railway line with the heavy trunk. On 11 th September, 1929 both were arrested.

Malkapurkar and Mahaur were charge-sheeted for sedition. The Government made it a prestige issue. Jaigopal and Fanindra Ghosh were given pardon to depose against Malkapurkar and Mahaur. Malkapurkar and Mahaur were in a lock-up at Jalgaon. They were given facility of home food.

Brother of Sadashiv Malkapurkar supplied loaaded pistol to him from the tiffin box. Bhagwan Mahaur shot at Jaigopal and Fanindra Ghosh in the Court. But Jaigopal and Fanindra had a narrow escape. Devakinaandan and 10 persons from Jalgaon were charge-sheeted. But the information as to who supplied pistol in tiffin box remained a secret till March, 1986, when it was disclosed in a public meeting by Shankarrao Malkapurkar. Malkapurkar and Mahaur were sentenced to rigorous imprisonment for 15 years. The case was reviewed in 1937 by Congress Cabinet and both the revolutionaries were released in 1938.
