Ahmad Khan was the son of Muhammad Khan, a Bangash Afghan who rose to prominence as a fearless mercenary. He would later found Kaimganj, named after his son, Kaim Khan, and Muhammadabad, which he named after himself. In order to appease the Mughal emperor Farruksiyar, who felt slighted, Muhammad Khan founded Farrukhabad.

Due to the scheming of Safdar Jang, Ahmad Khan's brother, Kaim Khan, was killed in a battle against the governor of Rohilkhand, Hafiz Rahmat Khan, in 1749 and Farrukhabad was formally annexed to Oudh. After the subsequent plundering of Farrukhabad by Safdar Jang, Ahmad Khan bangash returned to recover his ancestral territory. With the help of Rohilla Afghans, Ahmad Khan defeated Nawal Rai, the deputy of Safdar Jang, in a battle to retake Farrukhabad in 1750 only to lose it again when Safdar Jang enlisted the help of Marathas. In 1751, Afgan Sardar Ahmed Khan Bangash attacked the fort of Allahabad and on being unable to win it, he killed, robbed and tortured the residents settled near Khuldabad fort and made about 400 women of reputed families were made his slaves.Ahmad fled to the north and was only able to return after promising half of his possessions to the Marathas in 1752.
