Kehar Singh Sandhanvalia
A Collateral of Maharaja Ranjit Singh (D. 1864)
Son of Atar Singh Sandhanvalia. He was imprisoned, along with his uncle Lahina Singh Sandhanvalia, by Maharaja Sher Singh in January 1842 for conspiring against the State. As long as he remained in Lahore, he endeavoured, at the instigation of Ajit Singh and Atar Singh Sandhanvalia, then in British territory, to foment trouble and subvert the authority of Maharaja Sher Singh. At the time of the murders in Lahore of Maharaja Sher Singh and his son Partap Singh on 15 September 1843, he was with his father at Thanesar. When in May 1844, Atar Singh with a small force, crossed the Sutlej to join Kanvar Pashaura Singh, Kehar Singh accompanied his father. He escaped unharmed in the contest that occurred. He continued to live at Thanesar in British territory where he died in 1864.
