BAHĀDUR SIṄGH, who belonged to Nankū, an obscure village in Jalandhar district of the Punjab, was among the close associates of Bhāī Mahārāj Siṅgh, leader of the anti-British revolt of 1848-49. After the failure of the design to rescue Mahārājā Duleep Siṅgh from British hands, Bhāī Mahārāj Siṅgh planned a general uprising and sent out emissaries to prepare the people for it. It was at the persuasion of Bahādur Siṅgh who had been assigned to Jalandhar Doāb that Bhāī Mahārāj Siṅgh shifted his headquarters to the Doābā. He accompanied Bhāī Mahārāj Siṅgh during his tour of the area and was arrested along with him on the night of 28-29 December 1849.
