FATEH SIṄGH (d. 1875), son of Nidhān Siṅgh Hāṭhū, was a soldier in the Sikh army and was attached to his father's contingent wherein he remained until 1827 when he was placed in the Ghoṛchaṛhā Kalāṅ regiment. In 1834, he accompanied Mahārājā Raṇjīt Siṅgh to Peshāwar and, in 1840, he was sent, under Arjan Siṅgh Raṅghaṛ Naṅglīā, to Maṇḍī and Kullū where a rebellion had broken out. After the death of Rājā Hīrā Siṅgh in December 1844, Fateh Siṅgh was ordered to Rājaurī and Puṇchh to put down an insurrection there. During the first Anglo-Sikh war (1845-46), Fateh Siṅgh remained in Lahore with General Gulāb Siṅgh Pahūviṇḍīā assigned to protecting the minor Mahārājā Duleep Siṅgh. Soon after the war, he was appointed commandant of the Sūraj Mukhī corps. In 1847, he accompanied Lieut. Herbert Edwardes to Bannū, and served throughout the Multān campaign of 1848. After the annexation of the Punjab, he joined the police.

        Fateh Siṅgh died in 1875.
