JAI SINGH KAMLA
JAI SINGH KAMLA (d. 1827) served, like his father Uttam Singh, under the Bharigi chief, Gulab Singh, on whose death in 1800 he joined Ranjit Singh, who had occupied Lahore barely a year earlier. Jai Singh was a good soldier and took part in many of the Maharaja`s campaigns. As a reward, he was granted jdgzrs in Sheikhupura district. In 1817, when he was too old for active service, he was appointed a judge at Amritsar. Jai Singh died in 1827. Of his sons, Marigal Singh had been killed fighting against the Nawab of Mankera in October 1821. His second son,Jaimal Singh, rose to be a commandant in the Charyari Horse.
