KAHN SINGH, son of Baba Binod Singh, a Trehan Khatri, was with Guru Gobind Singh at Nanded during his last days. He, along with his father, was among the five Sikhs chosen to accompany Banda Singh Bahadur to the Punjab in 1708. He took part in Banda Singh`s campaigns against the Mughal rulers. After the capture of Sirhind by the Sikhs in May 1710, Kahn Singh was made deputy to his father who was given charge of the border district of Karnal. He fought battles against the Mughal commander Firoz Khan Mcvati at Arnin, Taraori, Thancsar and Shahabad to check the latter`s advance towards the Punjab. Later, he had differences with Banda Singh during the siege at Gurdas Narigal and left his camp. He was captured and taken to Delhi along with other Sikh prisoners for execution.
