Mangal pandey was a sepoy in the 34th Bengal Native Infantry (BNI) regiment of the english east india company. He is known for his involvement in the initialising stages of the indian rebellion of 1857.he was hanged to death by the british on 8 april 1857.u know why he fought with the british because a new type of bullet cartridge used in the Enfield P-53 rifle which was to be introduced in the Bengal Army that year.
The cartridge was thought to be greased with animal fat, primarily from pigs and cows, which could not be consumed by Muslims and Hindus respectively (the former being abhorrent to Muslims and the latter a holy animal of the Hindus). The cartridges had to be bitten at one end before use. The Indian troops were of the opinion that this was an intentional act of the British, with the aim of defiling their religions.thus the revolt of 1857 began i hope this answers ur question
