A group of revolutionaries of Jugantar Party conducted a raid in village Pragpur on 30th April 1915. They went by boat and committed dacoity in the shop of Harinath Saha in village Pragpur Police Station Daulatpur. Mouser pistols and a huge quantity of ammunition and safe-breaking implements were sent from Calcutta. Cash and ornaments to the value of Rs. 7000 were acquired. After the dacoity had taken place, the plan for returning to Calcutta misfired. Much of the journey had to be completed by boat. On the riverbank, they were attacked by the villagers and the police and an open fight took place. Sushil Sen was hit by a shot. He died in the boat on the way back and his body sank in the river. Umpteen people were arrested in this Pragpur Dacoity Case, including Ashu Lahiri, Gopen Roy, Kshitish Sanyal and Phani Roy. Three of them were sentenced to expatriation for seventeen years each, while the fourth was sentenced to deportation for eight years. All the four were send off to the Andamans.
