KANHAIYA SINGH, BHAI (1881-1921), son of Bhai Sundar Singh and Mai Afar Kaur of Pharala village in Jalandhar district, was one of the victims of Mahant Narain Das of Nankana Sahib. One of their relations, Bhai Bodh Singh, had settled in Chakk No. 91 Dhannuana in Lyallpur district (now in Pakistan). A death occurred in his family and Bhai Kanhaiya Singh went there to condole with him. While there, he found that ajathd from that village was getting ready to go for the liberation of Gurdwara Janam Asthan, Nankana Sahib. Kanhaiya Singh along with his cousin, Bechint Singh, who also happened to be there for condolences, joined the jathd and attained martyrdom on 20 February 1921. See NANKANA SAHIB MASSACRE
