Black-hole Tragedy

Siraj-ud-daula captured Calcutta and English factory at Kasim Bazar.

146 persons were captured and put in a very small room at night.

123 of them died due to suffocation and 23 survived.

There was a lot of controversy about the reality of Black-hole tragedy.

When the news of the Black hole tragedy reached Madras, Admiral Watson and Clive were sent to Bengal to take revenge. They captured Calcutta.

Nawab allowed the English to fortify Calcutta.

Clive, who determined to take revenge against Siraj-ud-daula for the Black-hole tragedy, induced Rai Durlab, the treasurer of the Nawab, Mir Jafar, the commander-in-chief of the Nawab forces, and Jagat Seth, the richest banker of Bengal, to revolt against the Nawab.

The conspiry was settled through Amin Chand.
