As far as I know, Brig. Gen. Reginald Dyer who opened fire at Jalianwala Bagh died of an illness and it was Michael O'Dwyer who had been governor of Punjab in 1919 during the Jalianwala Bagah massacre who was shot dead - many years later by a person called Udham Singh who did it as an act of avengement.

He died naturally of illness.

After the Amritsar massacre, Dyer's health failed and in 1921 he was stricken with paralysis. He never recovered. He died at Long Ashton, near Bristol, on July 23, 1927 of Atherosclerosis and cerebral hemorrhage. In the final moments of his life, he is reported to have murmured: "but I dont want to get better. Some say I did right, while others say I did wrong. I only want to die... and know of my maker whether I did right or wrong."

Udham Singh, the pub called THE COLLONIES in which he bought a pistol from Mr Patal still exist in its original form in Victoria London.
And the Hall where he shot O"dyer is also there and is part of sight seeing for Indian tourists to London.
Nearest station to both places is Saint James Park and Victoria on The London Underground Railways.
