After defeating Lotfali Khan's forces near Perspolis, Agha Mohammad Khan entered Shiraz in July, 1792. During one month of stay in the city, he took the rest of the Zand family captive and exhumed the body of Karim Khan Zand to be sent to Tehran.
Next spring, he returned to Shiraz again to assert his hold over the old capital. This time he took women and children of the nobles including Haji Ebrahim as hostages. He then ordered destruction of the citadel and the outer city walls of Shiraz before leaving for Tehran on Aug, 23, 1793.
Lotfali Khan was finally betrayed in Bam and handed over to Agha Mohammad Khan who ordered him to be tortured to death.
