Write in brief about.
Raising the Maratha standard at Attock.
- Najibkhan, a Rohilla chief, did not like the Maratha supremacy in the North.
- At Najibkhan’s behest, Ahmadshah Abdali invaded India for the fifth time. He captured Delhi and returned to Afghanistan with a huge booty.
- It is then that, Raghunathrao and Malharrao Holkar marched to the North again and re-captured Delhi. They captured the Punjab and drove out Abdali’s officers right up to Attock (in present-day Pakistan).
- From Attock, they continued their campaign up to Peshawar but failed to make proper arrangements to look after the newly conquered territory.
