Udham Singh was a political activist who killed Michael O'Dwyer, the colonial official responsible for the brutal Jallianwala Bagh massacre.

Udham Singh was born on 26 December 1899 in Sunam, Sangrur district of Punjab, India. He belonged to Kamboj family of Jammu. Singh's mother died when he was an infant and his father, who was a farmer and also worked as the railway crossing watchman in the village of Upalli, died after some years. After his parents died, Udham Singh and his brother, Mukta Singh, were taken in by the Central Khalsa Orphanage Putlighar in Amritsar.

On 13 April 1919, over twenty thousand unarmed People assembled in Jallianwala Bagh, Amritsar, to celebrate the important Hindu and Sikh festival of Baisakhi. At the same time, they peacefully protested against the arrest of local leaders of the Indian National Congress including Satyapal and Saifuddin Kitchlew by the British.

Singh along his friends were present there as they were serving water in the programme.
