KĀHN SIṄGH AṬĀRĪVĀLĀ (d. 1873), soldier and jāgīrdar, was the second son of Shām Siṅgh Aṭārīvālā, the celebrated general of Mahārājā Raṇjīt Siṅgh. He inherited only a small part of the jāgīr of his father, subject to the maintenance of 97 horse, 25 foot and l0 zambūrās. His contingent was assigned in 1848 to serving Rājā Sher Siṅgh Aṭārīvālā at Multān in 1848, but it left the Rājā when the latter moved northwards to join his father, Chatar Siṅgh, against the British. Twenty-five of his horsemen remained with the Rājā while the rest marched back with Shamsher Siṅgh Sandhāṅvālīā. Kāhn Siṅgh's dīwān, Naraiṇ Siṅgh supplied provisions and carriage to the British army at Gaṇḍā Siṅghvālā and Kasūr. For his loyalty to the British Kāhn Siṅgh was allowed to keep his jāgīrs after the annexation of the Punjab. He died in 1873.
