SANT SIṄGH (d.1705), an Aroṛā Sikh of Paṭṭī in present-day Amritsar district of the Punjab, was one of the warriors in the retinue of Gurū Gobind Siṅgh. He took part in the battles of Anandpur and Nirmohgaṛh as also in that of Chamkaur. At Chamkaur, Gurū Gobind Siṅgh, along with his forty Sikhs including his two elder sons, had been besieged by an imperial host far superior in numbers. According to Saināpati, Srī Gur Sobhā and Gurbilās Pātshāhī 10 by Kuir Siṅgh and Gurbilās Dasvīṅ Pātshāhī by Sukhā Siṅgh, Sant Siṅgh was the last to sally out against the besiegers and die fighting before Gurū Gobind Siṅgh himself broke out of the cordon and escaped.
