Baba Randheer Singh had spent more than 15 years in prison due to his activities in the Ghadar Mutiny. The Ghadar Mutiny was carried out by the members of the Ghadar Party at a time when many of the British Indian soldiers were engaged in World War I to incite mutiny in the remaining soldiers left at home. Baba Randheer Singh was sentenced to life imprisonment in the first Lahore Conspiracy case and sent to Lahore central jail. Nearly, two years before, in December , John Saunders was killed by Bhagat Singh and Rajguru, though they mistook him for James Scott responsible for ordering the lathi charge that took the life of Lala Lajpat Rai. Just four months later, in April , Bhagat Singh with Batukeshwar Dutt exploded two bombs designed such that it could not kill in the Central Legislative Assembly, in Delhi. Bhagat Singh was later also charged with the killing of Saunders and he was also in the same jail with Baba Randheer Singh.
