According to several scholars he was descendant of the sansi a nomadic gypsy tribe of rajput origin who are linked to jatt people. Under British Rule the sansis were placed under criminal tibes act 1871 and linked to cattle thievery.

Yes he was a gypsy, he loved to steal ladoos from the palace kitchens and dance tango in the darbar.

This thread has nothing to do with archaeology, which Indology is a branch of. I'm moving this to ethnicities section...

In future if you want to accuse certain famous Indians of being gypsies could you make a detailed list rather than make a thread for each of them please? It's less messy and easier on the eyes.

Plus, I don't see any link to gypsies, only to Jatts, which you allege to be the ancestors of gypsies, it would be nice if you could put sources for such horrid accusations.
