Who was Jankoji ?
Jankoji Shinde I, the son of Jayappa Shinde, was a valiant fighter. In the third battle of Panipat, the Marathas under Jankoji Shinde attacked Najib Khan, the Rohilla ally of Ahmad Shah Abdali, forcing him to fight a defensive battle. But the battle took a turn and though it seemed that the Marathas would be victorious over the Afghans, the Maratha army was eventually defeated. Jankoji Shinde was taken prisoner and executed at the instance of Najib Khan.
