SULABI KHAN. a nephew of Sulahi Khan, bore Guru Arjan a personal grudge thinking that his uncle had died as a result of Guru Arjan`s curse. Abetted by Chandu Shah, who had his own axe to grind, to take revenge on the Guru, Sulabi Khan set out with a troop of soldiers, and headed for Amritsar. But, according to Gurbilas Chhevin Patshahi, he was accosted on the way by another group of soldiers, who had been in the employ of his uncle but had not been paid for their services for a long time. They now demanded the payment of their arrears.

Sulabi Khan tried to put them off pleading ignorance of the dues. The irate soldiers attacked him and killed him on the spot. Sulabi Khan`s own contingent did not interfere and went back to Lahore.
