The British Government aimed to plunder India of her resources. They raised the land revenue and other agrarian taxes, so much so that the peasants starved. On 28 January 1894, peasants at Patharughat (now Patharighat) in Assam assembled to protest against the raised land revenue demands. As its nature was, British forces opened fire at the unarmed peaceful peasants. Indian sources reported that at least 140 patriots were martyred.
