Shivaram Hari Rajguru (August 24, 1908 – March 23, 1931) was a great Indian freedom fighter and revolutionary from Maharashtra, India, known mainly for his contribution in the Indian Freedom struggle. He came in a limelight by his involvement in the murder of a British police officer as a means of protest against the death of Lala Lajpatrai caused due to British Police Atrocity.
He was a member of the Hindustan Socialist Republican Army(HSRA), who wanted India to be freed from British rule by any means necessary. He believed that ferocity against oppression was far more effective against British rule than the gentle ways of Mahatma Gandhi.
