He joined his father during the latter`s re volt against the British in 1848-49 and was, after the annexation of the Punjab, confined within the limits of his village, along with his father and brother, Raja Sher Singh. With his father and brother, he was removed to Allahabad in January 1850, and thence to Calcutta. In January 1854, he was released from confinement.
