History And Origin[edit]

They drived their name from the Chunval of the Gujarat. They are distributed mainly in the Chotila, Sayla and Halvad Taluqas of Surendranagar district, Junagadh district and all over the Saurashtra (region) of the Gujarat. They have passed three stages, firstly they were pagi (detective), second they were considered criminal community because they were turned into dacoity and thievery. They speak Gujarati language.[1][2] During the Gujarat Sultanate's time, they were wilder and ravaged the villages of Dholka, Viramgam and Kadi but they were defeated by twenty sixth Mughal Empire Viceroy Saisat Khan.[3]
