HIRA SINGH KALAL
HIRA SINGH KALAL, of Pasrur in Sialkot district, went in company with Thakur Singh Sandharivalia travelling to England in 1884 to meet Maharaja Dulccp Singh. On his return to India, he is said to have acted as an intermediary between the Raja of Kashmir, Baba Khem Singh Bedi and Maharaja Dulecp Singh. In November 1885, the Maharaja wrote to him to engage 20 servants for him and bring them to Bombay. In April 1886, Hira Singh received a telegram from Dulecp Singh intimating that the latter had started from England. Hira Singh engaged a batch of servants and took them to Bombay. On receiving the news of the Maharaja`s detention at Aden, he returned to the Punjab, the Maharaja`s bankers at Bombay defraying the travel expenses.
