Bhagat Ram Talwar played an active role in India's freedom struggle, and was most known for his role as the friend and comrade of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose.[1] Talwar helped Bose escape from house arrest in 1941. They made the dangerous journey from Calcutta to Kabul and Netaji eventually made it to Germany. Unknown to Bose, Talwar was a spy for at least four countries, namely, Germany, Japan, USSR and British-ruled India.[2] He was a freedom fighter and a peasant leader in the North West Frontier Province (present-day Pakistan). He was an agent and prominent figure of the Kirti Kisan Party.[3]

Bhagat Ram Talwar's older brother, Hari Kishan, was sentenced and hanged in 1931 by the British for his assassination attempt on the British Governor of Punjab, Sir Geoffrey de Montmorency.[4]
