Wazir Khan (Sirhind)
Wazir Khan is noted for his conflicts with the Sikhs, and became infamous for ordering the execution of Guru Gobind Singh's young sons (Sahibzada Fateh Singh and Sahibzada Zorawar Singh) in 1705. He was beheaded by the Sikh army led by Banda Singh Bahadur outside the Sirhind city in the Battle of Chappar Chiri in May 1710. Recently, Punjab government created Fateh Burj to commemorate the victory of Baba Banda Singh Bahadur at Chhappar Chiri, close to Ajitgarh also called Mohali.
