Charles Napier was sent to Sind in 1842 to suppress the Muslim rulers of the area who had become hostile following the end of the 1st Afghan War. The Sindhi coalition of Talpurs and Kalhoras was thoroughly defeated at the Battle of Meeanee and this led to the annexation of Sindh by the Bombay Presidency which renamed it the Sind Division. It was separated from the Presidency becoming Sind Province in 1936.
