Owing to some complaints received against him, he was recalled to Lahore, tried for fraud, and fined 1,25,000 rupees. He regained the Darbar's favour in 1835 and was given an assignment which took him to Peshawar. In 1844, he earned the displeasure of Raja Hira Singh, the prime minister, and fled Lahore to take refuge with Bhai Bir Singh of Naurangabad. He was captured by a force led by Miari Labh Singh and executed in May 1844.
