Correct Answer - Option 2 : Chauhan

  • Veer Surendra Sai (23 January 1809 – 28 February 1884) is a name Odisha utters with pride and respect.
  • Around 21 km away from Sambalpur, this ‘veer’ (warrior) was born in Khinda village.
  • He was a direct descendant of King Madhukar Sai, the fourth king of the Chauhan dynasty, but the British refused this right to him after the demise of Maharaja Sai.

  • In 1857, during the Sepoy Mutiny, sepoys from the Ramgarh battalion broke open the Hazaribagh jail where Sai was kept and freed him and others.
  • He reached Sambalpur and acquired a fighting force of about 1500 men. He fought against the British through guerrilla warfare from 1857 to 1862.
