In the beginning a clip was shown describing the incident which was then narrated and described by the students. More than 1500 people were injured and 1000 were killed including old, young, women and children. The students highlighted , how Dyer had no mercy on people and kept on killing all of them.Bullets pushed through their flesh and Dyer didn’t care about 100 years down the lane. Dyer lives no more but the blood bath of Baisakhi has not found a cure. The well in which hundreds of people jumped to death can still be seen at Jallianwala Bagh in Amritsar.
