WE SAY IT WAS CONFISCATED. IN THE LONDON MUSEUM IT WAS WRITTEN AS IF GIFTED BY KHARAK SINGH.

The diamond has belonged to various Hindu, Rajput, Mughal, Iranian, Afghan, Sikh and British rulers who fought bitterly over it and seized it as a spoil of war time and time again..
It was confiscated from Kharak Singh in 1850 by the British East India Company and became part of the British Crown Jewels when Queen Victoria was proclaimed Empress of India in 1877
