CHŪHAṚ SIṄGH, owning allegiance to the Shahīd misl, was a close relation of the Bhaṅgī sardār, Rāi Siṅgh, the conqueror of Jagādhrī and Diālgaṛh. He received the Jaṛaulī area as his share of the spoils after the sack of Sirhind in January 1764. He retained ten villages for himself and made over the rest to his deputies. Returning to Amritsar, he held charge of the Shahīd Buṅgā for many years. He acquired considerable territory on either side of the River Rāvī, and was considered one of the most powerful sardārs of his day. He placed his younger son, Mohar Siṅgh, in charge of the village of Jaṛaulī, while Karam Siṅgh the elder, subsequently succeeded to the family estates north of the Sutlej. Karam Siṅgh died in 1808.
