ALLAHDAD KHAN (d. 184.9) was the last ruler of Khattekhel family of Tonk, situated in Bannu district, on the northwest frontier. When Maharaja RANJIT SINGH conquered this region in 1821, Allahdad Khan became a tributary of the SIKH government. As the tribute had fallen in arrears, an expedition was sent against Tonk in 1836. Allahdad Khan fled, but he continued his intrigues against the SIKHS. In 1843, Fateh Khan Tiwana, who was sent to curb his revolt, proposed that Allahdad Khan be appointed governor of Tonk to secure peace in the territory. The proposal was still under consideration of the LAHORE Darbar when Allahdad Khan died.
