The Maharajah Holkar was a prominent ruler in India during the time of the Indian Rebellion of 1857, also known as the Sepoy Mutiny. While there is no concrete evidence to suggest that he was complicit with the mutineers, there are several accounts that suggest he sympathized with their cause and provided them with support.

Holkar's sympathies with the mutineers may have stemmed from his own conflicts with the British. In the years leading up to the rebellion, he had been embroiled in disputes with the British over issues such as taxation and territorial control. He had also been critical of British policies that he believed were detrimental to the Indian people.

During the rebellion, there were reports that Holkar had provided shelter to mutineers and allowed them to use his territories as a base of operations. He also reportedly refused to allow British troops to pass through his territories, which hindered their efforts to quell the rebellion.

Despite these reports, there is no definitive evidence to suggest that Holkar was actively involved in the rebellion or that he directly supported the mutineers. Some historians argue that his actions were motivated more by a desire to assert his own power and autonomy, rather than by any ideological commitment to the mutineers' cause.

Overall, the extent of Holkar's complicity with the mutineers remains a matter of debate among historians. While there are indications that he sympathized with their cause, it is not clear whether he played an active role in supporting the rebellion or whether his actions were motivated by other factors.
