They are found spread over Western and Eastern Punjab and U.P. According to the Dagars of Delhi area their ancestors had come from Gujrat and their forefather was one Yadu Bhan, nephew of Nabha-ji and brother of Jadija. For this reason Dagars are related to the Gondals.
As they lived in this hilly region, they are called Dagar or Danger. The Dagar have 20 villages in Delhi, and about 24 villages near Hindon in Jaipur State, some villages in Rohtak and about 25 villages in Bharatpur State. They are also found in Bikaner, Multan, Muzaffarnagar and Western Punjab.
In Brij area Jadecha and Yadubhan were two brothers in Yaduvansh. Jadecha established his kingdom in Kathiawar and joined Rajputs. Yadubhan moved to Himalayas and established his kingdom near Himalayas. The hills in the area of Yadubhan were known as 'Dang'. The hill series were known as 'Yadu ki Dang'. On the basis of their habitation in Dang, the Jat kshatriyas of this region are known as Daga, Dagur and Digrana.
Bhim Singh Dahiya mentions about this clan that Pliny first mentions this Jat clan in Central Asia as 'Tagoras' who went westwards with Yue-che hordes in second century BC. Maencheu Helfen identifies them with the Asis and the Tokhars.  S.P. Tolstov identifies the Turkish tribe Duker, with the Tokhars. Digor is also mentioned as one of the four tribes of the Ossets (Vasati of Indian works). They called their on the Uruk river and its tributaries as Digor, or Digur, which name appears in the Geography of Moses, of Khorene as As-Digor. These Digors were the ancestors of the Dagar Jats. P C Bagachi believes the Dogar and Tukhars were one and the same.  The ruling family of Orchha - Tikamgarh was called Digora.  
H. W. Bellew in An Inquiry Into the Ethnography of Afghanistan writes that Chanqiz Khan family, when the empire of the Mughal Tatar in Persia commenced to decline, by one Abdurrazzac, Bashtini ; who at the head of a numerous band of adventurers of all sorts raised the standard of rebellion, and capturing several cities of Khorasan, assumed royalty at Sabzwar, where his dynasty reigned under a succession of twelve princes for only thirty-five years. The national title of the Sarbedal was Dagar. The last Sarbedal prince, Amir Khwaja Abi Muyad, attached himself to Tamer-lane, when he entered Khorasan in 1380 A.D., and was treated by that conqueror with favour.

- Satish Dagar - Dy.S.P. CBI who probed the Baba Ram Rahim rape case and sent him to Jail. डेरा प्रमुख गुरमीत राम रहीम मामले को अंजाम तक पहुंचाने वाला असली हीरो ....सीबीआई के जाबांज़ डीएसपी सतीश डागर न होते तो यह केस अपने मुकाम पर नहीं पहुंच पाता. सतीश डागर ने ही साध्वियों को सामने आने के लिए मानसिक रूप से तैयार किया था. सतीश डागर नहीं होते ये लोग खौफ का सामना नहीं कर पाते. सतीश डागर पर भी बहुत दबाव पड़ा, मगर वे नहीं झुके. बड़े-बड़े आईपीएस ऐसी हिम्मत नहीं जुटा पाते हैं मगर डीएसपी सतीश डागर ने कमाल का साहस दिखाया है. पहले पंचकूला से सीबीआई की कोर्ट अंबाला में थी. जब ये लोग वहां सुनवाई के लिए जाते थे तब वहां भी बाबा के समर्थकों की भीड़ आतंक पैदा कर देती थी. हालत यह हो गई कि जिस दिन सुनवाई होती थी और बाबा की पेशी होती थी उस दिन अंबाला पुलिस लाइन के भीतर एसपी के ऑफिस में अस्थायी कोर्ट बनाया जाता था. छावनी के बाहर समर्थकों का हुजूम होता था. ऐसी हालत में उन दो साध्वियों ने गवाही दी और डटी रहीं, आसान बात नहीं उस बाबा के खिलाफ जिससे मिलने कांग्रेस, भाजपा के बड़े-बड़े नेता सलामी देने जाते हैं.
