Page 24 of 44: "After their murder he (Hodgson) got their heads cut off and presented them to the Badshah saying that "this is your Nazr-gift, which had closed, and to renew it, you had taken part in the rebellion". The Badshah looked on his sons heads, and with surprising composure said "Thanks to Allah, the descendents of Timur always come in front of their fathers in this way." After that, the bodies were hung out in front of the Police Station and the heads were hung on the Khuni Darwaza (Bloody gate). Lord Roberts, who later became the Commander-in-Chief in India and who later died in Europe, was present during the Mutiny. Commenting on the actions of Major Hodgson he wrote "By this act Hodgson ruined his reputation and killed the princes to no purpose."
