Biographical

After the rebellious Prince Shah Jahan invaded Orissa, he offered Fath Jang a large jagir in return for Bengal, but Fath Jang remained loyal the emperor. Shah Jahan invaded, and during the battle of Rajmahal, both sides incurred heavy losses. After Fath Jang's forces began to desert him, he was left in a weak position, and was soon killed by the prince's forces. His property and holdings were claimed by the prince.
