Pramod Ranjan Choudhury (1904 – 28 September 1926) was a Bengali activist for the Indian independence movement who was hanged for the assassination of police officer Bhupen Chatterjee.
Pramod Ranjan was born at Kelishahar, Chittagong District in British India. His father's name was Ishan Chandra Choudhury.
Choudhury joined the Anushilan Samiti group at Chattogram. In 1921 he took part in the non-cooperation movement. He was arrested at Dakshineswar for his connections with the Dakshineswar Conspiracy Case and sent to prison. On 28 May 1926 Choudhury and other fellow revolutionary inmates killed Bhupen Chatterjee with an iron rod. Chatterjee was a deputy superintendent of the Police Intelligence Branch who spied on inmates and tried to destroy the mental strength of political prisoners.
The trial of the killers began on 15 June 1926 and a sentence of capital punishment was handed down on 21 June. Choudhury and Anantahari Mitra were hanged on 28 September 1926 in the Alipore Central Jail in Kolkata.
