Which of the following commission was formed by the British after the Jallianwala Bagh Massacre?
Correct Answer : b ) Hunter CommissionExplanation :
On 9 April 1919, Indians raged by the arrest of two nationalist leaders, Saifuddin Kichlu and Dr. Satyapal, protested on 10 April 1919 to show solidarity with their leaders.
The protests soon turned violent, killing some protesters. The government enforced martial law to prevent any such protests in the future. On the day of Baisakhi on 13 April 1919, a large crowd of people unaware of martial law gathered in Jallianwala Bagh in Amritsar.
Brigadier General Dyer surrounded the assembly and blocked the only gate to go out and opened fire on the unarmed mob. More than 1000 unarmed men, women and children were killed. The Hunter Commission was later set up by the government to investigate the massacre.
Hence, (b) is the correct answer.
