Azim Khan owed Ranjit Singh an annual tribute of 8 lakh (800,000) rupees. He refused to pay up and Ranjit Singh invaded, but Azim Khan was able to offer Nazrana to him. However he was decisively defeated at the Battle of Nowshera.
At the end of 6 years of rule, he took 2 crore (20 million) of rupee worth of property, and appointed his younger brother Jabbar Khan as the governor. Jabbar Khan was defeated by the Ranjit Singh's army in 1819.
