HEMĀ, BHĀĪ, a devout Sikh of Gurū Tegh Bahādur, along with his brother (Nagāhīā) and father (Lakkhī Shāh) and another person by the name of Nāik, son of Kāhnā, brought the headless body of Gurū Tegh Bahādur, after he was executed at Delhi's Chāndnī Chowk under imperial orders, to his home at Rāisīnā (Delhi). Since cremation in the open would not have been possible, they brought the body into the house, which they put aflame. This happened on Māghar sudī 6, 1732 Bk/AD 1675.
