KĀLE KHĀN, one of the Paṭhān officers who had joined service under Gurū Gobind Siṅgh at Pāoṇṭā Sāhib after their dismissal from the Mughal army. He is said to have remained steadfast in his devotion to the Gurū and his troops fought on his side in the battle of Bhaṅgāṇī (1688), whereas most of his other companions had deserted him and crossed over to the hill rājās. Unlike some other participants in the battle of Bhaṅgāṇī, Kāle Khān is not mentioned in Gurū Gobind Siṅgh's Bachitra Nāṭak.
