    D)  Asad Khan, Kam Bakhash and Jahandar Shah

    Correct Answer: B

    Solution :

    [b] Mirza Abu Zafar Sirajuddin Muhammad Bahadur Shah Zafar was the last Mughal emperor. As the Indian rebellion of 1857 spread, Sepoy regiments seized Delhi. Because of his neutral views on religions, some Indian kings and regiments accepted Zafar as the Emperor of India. On 16 May, sepoys and palace servants killed 52 Europeans who were prisoner of the palace and who were discovered hiding in the city. The executions took place under a peepul tree in front of the palace, despite Zafar's protests.
