Freedom Fighter Lalmohan Sen was killed trying to save the Hindus of Sandwip from a Muslim mob.

‘According to eyewitnesses, the attackers used petrol to set the houses on fire. In the remote island of Sandwip, which had no motor cars, petrol was imported from the mainland to set the houses on fire. According to Rakesh Batabyal, the use of petrol and kerosene indicates the premeditated and organised nature of the attacks.’
