Khooni Darwaza (Gate of Death)

     In 1857, during the revolt against the British masters, Captain Hudson of the East India Company arrested the three princes of the Mughal royal family - Mirza Mughal, Khij Sultan and Mirza Abubakar - from the Humayun tomb in the Nizamuddin area of Delhi on Sept 22. He later reached this spot where the princes were kept. Large crowds thronged the place. Fearing that the agitated people might rescue the princes, the captain got the princes stripped bare above the waist and shot them one by one.(Khooni means murderer or murderous or blood-soaked)
