Com Dhirendra Singh was born on 2nd July 1970 in a middle class family. He took his birth in Demagaon, Masaudi thana, Patna district, Bihar. His father was a teacher. He was an intelligent child and the brightest of all his brothers and sisters. When he had joined college there was no student organisation in his college. But he had heard the name of SFI and came into contact with some former leaders of the organisation. He took the initiative to form the organisation in 1988. He became the convenor of the PS College unit Masaudi and took up the responsibility of strengthening the organisation. On one hand he took up the issues of the students and organised powerful student struggles on them. On the other hand he also took up the issues of dalits and other backward sections of the society and organised struggles against the feudal forces in the society. As a result not only SFI but also the democratic movement too started to grow rapidly in that feudal dominated region. Com Dhirendra Singh became the most loved student and mass leader of the area. Afraid of his growing popularity the feudal elements engaged goondas to kill him. On the fateful day of 31st August, 1989, at 4 PM in the evening, while Com Dhirender was passing through the bazaar in Masaudi, the criminals shot him dead.
