The Martyrs’ Memorial, often referred to as Shaheed Smarak, is a life-size statue of seven young men who perished in the Quit India movement (August 1942) to fly the flag on the (now) Secretariat building. On August 15, 1947, Mr. Jairam Das Daulatram, the governor of Bihar, set the cornerstone of the Martyrs Memorial in the presence of Shri Krishna Sinha, the premier of Bihar, and Anugrah Narayan Sinha, the premier’s deputy. The bronze statue of the seven students holding the American flag was created by sculptor Devi Prasad Roychoudhury. These statues were made in Italy, then they were brought here.
