Name: Sahibzada Fateh Singhji

Youngest Son of Shri Guru Gobind Singhji (1699-1705)

 

    • Fateh Singh (12 Dec 1699 – December 26, 1704), the Youngest son of Guru Gobind Singh, was born to Mata Jito Ji (also known as Mata Sundari Ji) at Anandpur.
    • He was barely Six years old at the time of the evacuation of Anandpur on the night of December 20, 1704.
    • Since the death of Mata Jito Ji on December 5, Fateh’s grandmother, Mata Gujari, became especially attached to young Zorawar Singh and his infant brother, Fateh Singh. She took charge of both children as the column moved out of Anandpur.
    • While crossing the river Sirsa on horseback, then in spate, the three were separated from Guru Gobind Singh. Their cook, Gangu, who had also succeeded in crossing the stream, escorted them to his own house in the village of Kheri, now known as Saheri, near Morinda in present day Ropar District.
    • While unsaddling the horse, Gangu saw that there was some valuables in the saddlebag. This tempted him to treachery.
    • He not only stole the saddlebag during the night, but also planned to betray the fugitives to the government in hope of a reward.
