About : 

  • The British Government constituted a Military Commission under Brig. General Chamberlain with four other members, of the rank of majors, for trial of the acts of omission and commission by Raja Nahar Singh. The trial began on Saturday, the 19th December, 1857 at 11.00 am at Delhi.
  • In order to break up the political power of the native princely states, it was considered necessary to crush all opposition. Raja Nahar Singh of Bhallabhgarh, alongwith Nawab of Jhajjar, Dadree and Farukhnagar were tried and hanged till death on 9.1.1858 for their complicity in the revolt of 1857.
