DIĀL SIṄGH, BHĀĪ (1860-1921) was the son of Bhāī Devā Siṅgh and Māī Rām Kaur of Ghasīṭpur village, in Amritsar district. He learnt to read the Gurū Granth Sāhib in the village gurdwārā and enlisted in an infantry battalion at Poonā in his early youth. He served for 20 years and had received a gallantry award before he retired on a monthly pension of Rs 4. Diāl Siṅgh had married but had no offspring. Shortly before the happenings at Nankāṇā Sāhib, he attended a dīvān (Sikh religious congregation) at Chakk No. 75 Lahuke where he took the initiatory vows of the Khālsā at the hands of Bhāī Naraiṇ Siṅgh, and offered himself as a volunteer for the jathā or band of Bhāī Lachhmaṇ Siṅgh of Dhārovālī. He fell a martyr at Nankāṇā Sāhib on 20 February 1921.
