History

Ch. Bansi Lal
भीम स्टेडियम, भिवानी

In medieval periods,the area was under the mughals which subsequently for a brief period was won over by armies under the Jat king of Bharatpur. Subsequently, during the inetrnal strife prevailing within the ruling family, the area also saw brief period of marauding from Jat sikh misls before finally being accepted under the British Suzerainity. Though it is widely agreed that the area was spared from the usurping eyes of Jat sikh rulers who in turn took it as part of dominions of another Jat ruler(Bharatpur)only . Subsequently, some Parts of the area were also rewarded to petty interests who had collaborated with the Britishers in their wars with the Jat king(s). Special mention may here be made of the Nawab of Loharu who was given the Jamindari subsequent to the war of 1825-26 for the help redered by him to the Britishers against the warring factions of the Jat ruling family.Pursuant to British occupation, and especially after The death of Maharaja Ranjit Singh (Punjab) as also denial by the ruler of Jind to accept the territory as per British offer on grounds of the area not being revenue wise feasibly maintainable ;the whatever nominal remnants of erstwhile designated governing Jat family of Saharan clan, already almost non-existent by way of wars both internal and external , were dispersed forcibly into obscurity by the Britishers.

The city has been a conventional school of boxing, with almost all of the members of the Indian Boxing Squad coming from its SAI hostel itself. Late Capt Hawa Singh, the legendary boxer, helped establish the boxing academy here.
