NATTHĀ SIṄGH, BHĀĪ (d. 1924), son of Bhāī Dhannā Siṅgh Randhāvā of Mogā, was one of the martyrs who fell in the firing at Jaito. He had studied up to the sixth class and was engaged in farming. As the Gurdwārā Reform movement got underway in the early 1920's, he took the Khālsā pāhul and became an Akālī activist. For a time he was secretary of the Akālī Jathā of Mogā tahsīl. When the first shahīdī jathā, column of volunteers for martyrdom, was passing through Mogā on its way to Jaito, Nathā Siṅgh accompanied it. As the jathā was fired upon on its approach to Jaito on 21 February 1924, he received a bullet wound in his leg, and was admitted to the station hospital at Fīrozpur cantonment in a critical condition.

         He died on 30 March 1924.
