Correct Answer - Option 4 : Mandalay Jail, Burma

The correct answer is Mandalay Jail Burma.

  • On 30 April 1908, two Bengali youths, Prafulla Chaki and Khudiram Bose threw a bomb on a carriage at Muzzafarpur, to kill the Chief Presidency Magistrate Douglas Kingsford of Calcutta fame, but erroneously killed two women traveling in it. While Chaki committed suicide when caught, Bose was hanged. 
  • Tilak, in his paper Kesari, defended the revolutionaries and called for immediate Swaraj or self-rule. The Government swiftly charged him with sedition
  • The judge, Dinshaw D. Davar gave him a six years jail sentence to be served in Mandalay, Burma, and a fine of ₹1,000. Hence option 4 is correct.
