BHAG SINGH, also referred to in government records as Baj Singh, was an associate of Bhai Maharaj Singh, leader of the anti British revolt in the Punjab in 1848-49. Originally a disciple of Bhai Bir Singh of Naurangabad, he survived the attack on his dera on 7 May 1844 and went on a pilgrimage to Nanded. On his return to the Punjab, he joined Bhai Maharaj Singh at Amritsar shortly before the latter went underground in June 1847 to escape arrest by the British in connection with the Prema conspiracy case. Bhag Singh escaped towards Kangra and rejoined Bhai Maharaj Singh before the beginning of the second AngloSikh war in 1848. After the battle of Chelianvala he made a trip to Peshawar, rejoining his leader at Dev Batala, in the Jammu area.
