Dharam Singh assisted Bhai Maharaj Singh by mobilizing help for him in the Doaba region during the latter half of 1849. He especially introduced two artillerymen of Kapurthala to Bhai Maharaj Singh, in Hoshiarpur area. He was arrested along with Maharaj Singh on the night of 28-29 December 1849, but managed to escape. However, he was rearrested at Wazirabad in Gujranwala district and was held in custody in Lahore jail.
