SULTĀN SIṄGH (d. 1842), a Sūrī Khatrī of Choṭālā, in Jehlum district, joined Mahārājā Raṇjīt Siṅgh's ghoṛchaṛās at the young age of thirteen. He saw active service in several expeditions beyond the Indus, and participated in the Multān and Kashmīr campaigns. In one such campaign on the northwest frontier, he received thirteen sword-cuts and one bullet wound after making a most gallant stand, almost alone, against a large body of the Afghāns. When the Mahārājā heard of Sultān Siṅgh's crippled state, he had him conveyed to the camp in his own palanquin and presented him with a pair of gold bracelets, besides bestowing upon him jāgīrs in several villages. Sultān Siṅgh died in 1842.
