SAHIB CHAND (d.1700), a Sikh warrior in attendance upon Guru Gobind Singh (1666-1708). He took part in the battle of Bhangani. The Guru in his autobiographical composition. Bachitra Natak, makes a special mention of his valour during this battle. Sahib Chand took part in the various encounters with the imperial forces as well as with the hill chiefs until he fell in the battle of Nirmohgarh in 1700. A contemporary poet, Sainapati, makes a mention of his having been killed in this battle in his famous work, Sri Gur Sobha.
