Bhai Sukha-Jinda were great warriors of the Sikh nation who were sentenced to death by an Indian court for assassinating former Indian army chief Arun Vaidya. Arun Shridhar Vaidhya was chief of Indian army in June 1984 and under his commands the army had launched attack on Darbar Sahib (Amritsar) and other Sikh Gurdwaras. The events of June 1984 are regarded as third Ghallughara (holocaust) of the Sikh history. Bhai Sukha-Jinda had punished Vaidya as per Sikh tradition. Due had openly admitted their action during trial and happily accepted the death sentence awarded by the court. They had attained martyrdom on 9 October 1989 in Yerwada jail, Pune. Abdullah, the hangman, in an interview in 2011 reveled that Bhai Sukha-Jinda had raised freedom slogans while going to gallows.
