JAWĀHAR SIṄGH, a native of Sarhālī in Amritsar district of the Punjab, joined Bhāī Mahārāj Siṅgh (d. 1856) at Dev Baṭālā soon after the second Anglo-Sikh war. He was left behind at their camp at Chumbī in the interior of Jammū region, when Mahārāj Siṅgh with the main body of his troops shifted to Sūjovāl, in Gurdāspur district. He soon re-joined them at Zahūrā, in Hoshiārpur district. He was among the twenty trusted men detailed to rescue Mahārājā Duleep Siṅgh from British custody. He rejoined Bhāī Mahārāj Siṅgh at Shām Chaurāsī at the beginning of December 1849 and was among those arrested with him on the night of 28-29 December 1849.
