Najafgarh was named after Mirza Najaf Khan[3][4] (1723–1782) the commander-in-chief of the Mughal Army under the Emperor Shah Alam II.[5][6] He marched several kilometers from the capital of Shahjahanabad to establish a military outpost, which would guard Delhi against attacks by BritishRohillas and Sikhs. He built a strong fort,[7] in the suburbs beyond the capital city, and settled a small number of the Mughal here. That fort was later named Najafgarh.[8] After the death of Najaf Khan, Najafgarh later became a fortified stronghold of the Rohilla Afghan chieftain Zabita Khan (b. 1785).[9]
