Seetul

(★ – 1859) – (Maharashtra)

Seetul was a native of the Bombay Presidency and the son of Goolab. He served as a soldier in the English East India Company army in Bombay but left their service during the Rising of 1857 to fight against the British in several locations. Additionally, he encouraged his comrades to rise up and overthrow the Company’s rule. Unfortunately, Seetul was caught by the enemy during an encounter in Bombay, after which he was put on trial for desertion and mutiny. As a result, he was sentenced to transportation for life and sent to the Andaman Islands in April 1858. Tragically, he died while in detention there on 7th August 1859.
