Jackson's notes on Dadur read: 'Da[d]ur is a Belochee town, situate in
the valley, near the entrance to the Bolan Pass; it contains about fifteen
hundred houses and four thousand inhabitants. The plains are well cultivated,
but foliage is very scanty, the place being proverbial for its excessive
heat. The very characteristic tomb of an opulent native, who was murdered
in the defiles of the Bolan Pass, is an attractive object on approaching
the town. It was this town which was sacked by Nusser Khan, whilst the
British forces were in their entrenched camp, at about a mile distance.
