THE INFAMOUS ASSASSINS AND THEIR FAMOUS DEEDS
Nathuram Vinayak Godse (19 May 1910 – 15 November 1949)
He was a Hindu nationalist from Pune, India, who assassinated Mahatma Ghandi on 30 January 1948 in New Delhi. Godse believed Gandhi favoured the political demands of India’s Muslims during the partition of India. He plotted the assassination with Narayan Apte and six others. After a trial that lasted over a year, Godse was sentenced to death on 8 November 1949
Beant Singh (6 January 1959 – 31 October 1984),
He was born in Jaitu, adistrict of Punjab (India), was a bodyguard of Indira Gandhi who took part in her assassination in 1984. He was shot dead by the Prime Minister’s other bodyguards after he killed her.
Sher Singh Rana
Occasionally referring to himself as Pankaj Singh, is an Indian author, politician and convicted murderer responsible for the 2001 assassination of Indian parliamentarian Phoolan Devi. He managed to escape from Tihar Jail in 2004, but was arrested by the Special Cell of the Delhi Police at Delhi Police at Dharamtalla in Kolkata in 2006.
Lee Harvey Oswald
Perhaps the most debated and controversial of all assassinations is Oswald’s November 22, 1963 murder of American president John F. Kennedy. An avowed Marxist, Oswald was a former marine who emigrated to the Soviet Union in October of 1959. He later returned to the United States in 1962, finding life in the Soviet Union to be less than the idyllic existence he expected. After drifting through numerous jobs (and one failed assassination attempt upon General Edwin Walker), Oswald ended up in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area where he killed Kennedy.
John Wilkes Booths
Assassinated American president Abraham Lincoln on April 14, 1865 at Ford’s Theatre in Washington, D.C. Booth was an actor and Confederate sympathizer who conspired with several others to kill Lincoln, Vice President Andrew Johnson, and Secretary of State William Seward. It was hoped that the death of Lincoln and his first two successors would cripple the Union government and allow the Confederate government, which had surrendered four days earlier, to continue the war.
