Write a short note on the Rohilla War.

The Rohillas were Afghans who were frequently attacked by the Marathas. The Rohillas sought help from Nawab of Oudh Shuja-Ud-Daulah, who in return demanded Rs 40 lakhs for support. When the Marathas appeared at Rohilkhand, they saw Nawab’s forces behind Rohillas army. So, they began to flee and when Nawab demanded Rs 40 lakhs Rohillas Chief refused it. And, then Nawab gathered support from English and even promised them Rs 40 lakhs. The Nawab with English fought the Rohillas and annexed their territories to Oudh.
