History

B S Dahiya[8] writes: They are mentioned in Brahat Samhita as Jatasura (जटासुरा), along with the Potals, Chhinas, Bhallas, etc. Mahabharata reports that Krishna was abducted by Jatasura and Sabha Parva mentions Jatasura Madra-Kas, as bringing presents for Pandavas. They are now called Asra (आसरा), the prefix Jat, coming from Mahabharata times is dropped, just as Jatranas are called now Ranas only.[9]

Bhim Singh Dahiya[10] provides us list of Jat clans who were supporters of the Tunwar when they gained political ascendancy. The Jatasra clan supported the ascendant clan Tunwar and became part of a political confederacy.[11]
