Solution

The correct option is C Alauddin Khilji
Khilji expanded his dynasty to South India with the help of Malik Kafur. During Khilji's time, Malik Kafur invaded Devagiri, Warangal, Dwarasamudra and Madurai and became responsible for their destruction. Khilji did not integrate the conquered states into his kingdom, but simply plundered them.
