H. W. Bellew writes that of the Shinwari tribe, amongst whom the Tirahi now have their chief settlement, very little is known in regard to their origin and antecedents. He mentions Gandu for Gunda, Indian herds-man tribe. [4]


Behustun Inscription Line (46) reads : King Darius says: The rebels assembled a second time and went out against Vivâna to give him battle. At a place called Gandutava they fought a battle. Ahuramazda brought me help; by the grace of Ahuramazda my army utterly overthrew that rebel host. On the seventh day of the month Viyaxana (21 February 521) the battle was fought by them.
