The arrangement was put without hesitation at 10 p.m. on 18th of April 1930. The police arsenal (in Police Line in Dampara) was caught by a gathering of progressives drove by Ganesh Ghosh, while another gathering of ten men drove by Lokenath Bal took the Auxiliary Forces ordnance (now the old Circuit House). Somewhere in the range of 65 individuals partook in the assault, attempted for the sake of Indian Republican Army, Chittagong Branch. They neglected to find ammo however succeeded in cutting phone and transmit wires and disturbing train developments.

Sen conceived an arrangement to catch the two fundamental ordnances in Chittagong, crush the transmit and phone office, and take as prisoners individuals from the European Club, the greater part of whom were government or military authorities associated with keeping up the British Raj in India. Guns retailers were added to be assaulted, while rail and correspondence lines were to be sliced keeping in mind the end goal to separate Chittagong from Calcutta. Royal banks at Chittagong were to be plundered to assemble cash for promoting uprisings, and different imprisoned progressives would be liberated.

After learning of the circumstance, the Europeans could get the alert out to troops, which the progressives had not anticipated. Post the attacks, the progressives accumulated outside the police arsenal, where Sen took a military salute, raised a national banner, and announced a Provisional Revolutionary Administration. The progressives left Chittagong town before first light and walked towards the Chittagong slope ranges, searching for a sheltered place to hide.

A bunch of the individuals including Ananta Singh, Ganesh Ghosh and the young people Jeebon Ghoshal and Ananda Gupta were somewhere else and nearly caught at Feni railroad station yet figured out how to get away from that particular scenario. Later they remained secluded from everything in a house in Chandannagar.
