    1. Very little has been written about the Kanjial or Kanjal. Bellow is from Rose, author of Punjab castes

      https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=-aw3hRAX_DgC&pg=PR14&lpg=PR14&dq=janjua%20jats%20of%20gujrat&source=bl&ots=mXjDT5dW20&sig=xNvUpCtqUBdONSEd1XAoZWru0XA&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjor-ui7rbQAhWMLsAKHfO9AUgQ6AEIUTAG#v=onepage&q=janjua%20jats%20of%20gujrat&f=false

      But the Attock Gazetteer makes the Kanjal out to be Bhatti. The information I have from Wikely, author of Punjab Musalmans is Kanjial or Kanjal are Jat/Rajput found in Gujrat, Jhelum, Chakwal, Rawalpindi and Attock, as well as Mirpur and Kotli. But I have no detailed information on the distribution of Rajput tribes Attock
