OriginEdit

Mangal Pandey was an Indian soldier who played a key part in events immediately preceding the outbreak of the Indian rebellion of 1857. Angered by the actions of the British East India Company, he declared open rebellion against the British. Many think his motivation was that the bullet cartridges were greased with animal fat from pigs and cows. They had to bite the cartridge to load, which the Muslim and Hindu soldiers viewed as offensive according to their religions. A lieutenant Baugh tried to subdue Pandey but was instead slashed by Pandey’s sword. Pandey was caught and inflicted an injuring but not fatal gunshot wound upon himself. He and another soldier were tried for treason and hanged, which many viewed as too harsh a punishment.
