That was the time when Sikhs were forced under State persecution to leave their hearths and homes and find shelter in distant deserts and woods. Once when Baghar Singh came home to visit his family, a government informer spied on him and had him arrested. He was, under the orders of the Mughal governor, Zakariya Khan, tortured, his body was stretched on a revolving wheel before he was beheaded at Lahore in 1740.
