Option(C) is correct

Malik Kafur (died 1316), was a slave who became a head general in the army of Alauddin Khilji, ruler of the Delhi sultanate from 1296 to 1316 AD.

He was originally seized by Alauddin’s army after the army conquered the city of Khambhat. He was castrated and made a eunuch.

Malik Kafur was also called “Thousand Dinar Kafur” or Hazar Dinari, the amount paid by sultan for his possession.
