BHUPAL SINGH, a son of the Gurkha general, Amar Singh Thapa, came to Lahore and took up service under Maharaja Ranjit Singh (1780-1839). He became an officer in a battalion in the Sikh army under General Ventura. In 1838, Bhupal Singh returned to Nepal and was appointed to command a check post on the Indo Nepalese border. Two years later he was selected to lead an embassy to Lahore. He left Kathmandu on 6 June 1840, but the mission returned without transacting much business owing to the death in Lahore of Kanvar Nau Nihal Singh.
