Desire of the Sikh army to avenge their humiliation of the first war.
Discontentment of the Sikh Sardars with the British control over Punjab.
Treatment of Rani Jindan by the British (Her transportation to Shaikpur first
and then to Benaras, and drastic reduction of her pension).
Revolt of Mulraj (Governor of Multan) and the murder of two English
officers (Vans Agnew and Lt Anderson) sent to Multan to take over its
Revolt of Sher Singh (he was sent to suppress the revolt of Muiraj but he
himself joined the revolt against the British) leading to the outbreak of a
general rebellion by the Sikh army and the Sardars.
Course The main events of the war were:
Battle of Rarnnagar between Sher Singh and Lord Gough (British
commander-in-chief) in 1848 and battle of Chillianwala (1849) between the
two ended without any result.
Capture of Multan by Lord Gough and surrender of Mulraj who was
transported for life.
Final defeat of the Sikhs by Gough in the Battle of Gujarat (a town near the
Chenab) in 1849, and the surrender of Sher Singh and other Sikh chiefs and
the army in 1849.
