This event was part of the Indian Mutiny


Rumours of mutiny caused the wives and families of five European NCOs and many civilians to be sent to the protection of Rajah Maun Singh at Sheergunge on 8 June. On 9 June, after professing loyalty, the infantry regiments rebelled and prevented the artillery from firing on them. They allowed the Europeans to leave in four boats down the Gogra. The mutinous 17th Bengal Native Infantry were in the vicinity and harassed the fugitives. Many were killed during a harrowing journey towards Goruckpore.
