(popular name Sango Shah), the eldest son of Bhai Sadhu and BIbi Viro (the daughter of Guru Hargobind) and one of Guru Gobind Singh`s cousins. Sangram Shah, along with his four brothers, Jit Mall, Gulab Rai, Mahari Chand and Ganga Ram, fought in the battle of Bhangani (1688). Guru Gobind Singh in his autobiographical composition Bachitra Natak, especially applauds the heroism of Sangram Shah confronting the Pathan mercenaries who had earlier deserted the Guru`s camp and joined the enemy ranks. Fighting valiantly, he came face to face with their commander, Najabat Khan. They hurled their spears at each other, both falling simultaneously in the mutual combat.
