Gopinath Saha (1906-1924) was a Bengali activist for Indian independence (from British rule) and member of the Hindustan Republican Association. On 12 January 1924, he attempted to assassinate Charles Tegart, a leader in the fight against revolutionary movements and the then head of the Detective Department of Calcutta Police. Saha's attempt failed as he erroneously killed Ernest Day, a white civilian who had gone there on official business. Saha was arrested, tried and, in March 1924, hanged.
He was born in the town of Srirampur ,whose erstwhile name was Serampore,in the hooghly district of undivided Bengal.
