Muhammad Ghori was killed by assassins on his way back to Ghazni, following the conclusion of his campaigns in India. He was killed on March 15, 1205. The identity of his assassins remains unknown. Some sources attribute the assassination to Khokar Jats while others believe the Nizari Ismaili Assassins were behind it.
Indian folklore states that Prithviraj Chauhan was the one who killed Muhammad Ghori but it is not collaborated with other contemperorary sources of the time and also the fact that Prithviraj Chauhan died years before Muhammad Ghori makes it highly unlikely.
