The city of Ludhiana which has been forming its headquarters in the present Police Lines since 1867, was named after the Lodhi dynasty, that ruled at Delhi from 1451 to 1526 A.D. The two Lodhi Chiefs, Yusaf Khan and Nihang Khan, deputed by Sikandar Lodhi (A.D. 1489-1517) to restore order in the region, fixed their headquarters on the present location of Ludhiana city, which was at that time no more than a village called Mir Hota. Legend sounds that Yusaf Khan crossed the river Satluj to check the Khokhars, who were then plundering the Jalandhar Doab, and settled at Sultanpur. Nihang Khan remained at Mir Hota as the Emperor's lieutenant and named the place LODHIAN WALA which is now Ludhiana.The Police Lines, Ludhiana was established in 1867 now has become very old.
