What W. Lockhart said about M.J Ghulam Dastagir “Ghulam in 1885, “a man of 26 or 27, welcomed the officers, having hurried back from a shooting excursion in the mountains. Short, plain, and strongly built, he was said to be a very sensual man, but one devoted to field sports. He appeared with a hawk on his wrist and a greyhound at his heels, and presented Colonel Lockhart with the head of a fine markhur which he had just shot”.
