Jit Mall, a cousin of Guru Gobind Singh, was the son of Bhai Sadhu, a Khosia Khatri of Malla, in present-day Faridkot district of the Punjab, and Bibi Viro, daughter of Guru Hargobind and elder sister of Guru Tegh Bahadur. As recorded in Guru Gobind Singh's autobiographical poem Bachitar Natak, Jit Mall and his four brothers (Gulab Chand, Sango Shah, Mahri Chand and Ganga Ram) took a heroic part in the battle of Bhangani, near Paonta, now in Himachal Pradesh, fought on 18 September 1688. In reverberating verse matching the fierce pace of the battle, Guru Gobind Singh describes how the mighty Raja Hari Chand who had kept up a deadly discharge of arrows was challenged by Jit Mall and felled with a single thrust of his spear. Jit Mall was among two of the five brothers who were killed in the battle, the other being Sango Shah.
