KEHAR SIṄGH SANDHĀṄVĀLĪĀ (d.1864), son. of Atar Siṅgh Sandhāṅvālīā, a collateral of Mahārājā Raṇjīt Siṅgh, was imprisoned, along with his uncle Lahiṇā Siṅgh Sandhāṅvālīā, by Mahārājā Sher Siṅgh in January 1842 for conspiring against the State. As long as he remained in Lahore, he endeavoured, at the instigation of Ajīt Siṅgh and Atar Siṅgh Sandhāṅvālīā, then in British territory, to foment trouble and subvert the authority of Mahārājā Sher Siṅgh. At the time of the murders in Lahore of Mahārājā Sher Siṅgh and his son Partāp Siṅgh on 15 September 1843, he was with his father at Thānesar. When in May 1844, Atar Siṅgh, with a small force, crossed the Sutlej to join Kaṅvar Pashaurā Siṅgh, Kehar Siṅgh accompanied his father. He escaped unharmed in the contest that occurred. He continued to live at Thānesar in British territory where he died in 1864.
