nt in Tarai of Kumaon by Muslim Rulers
Doti Kalyan Chandra was busy in killing or punishing his suspected enemies in hills. The commanders of Avadh Nabab Mansurali Khan captured Sarbana and Bilhari Parganas of Kumaon Tarai. Avadh regional commanders were planning to capture balance portion of Kumaon Tarai.
From Rohilkhand (Bareli region), Ali Muhmmad Khan Rohila was ready to capture Tarai Mal of Kumaon.
Doti Kalyan Chandra appointed a courageous, hard worker nationalist Shiv Datt Joshi as regional commander for Tarai. Shiv Datt Joshi took necessary steps and recaptured Sarbana and Bilhari regions from Avadh commanders. Joshi built a fort in Tarai region for stopping encroachment. Shiv Datt Joshi appointed Hariram Joshi as his deputy for looking after Tarai region.

Himmat Gusain was from Chand king family. Doti King took out his eyes. Himmat Gusain came to Tarai Bhabhar.
Himmat Gusain collected army in Kashipur region to oust Doti Kalyan Chandra. Doti Kalyan Chandra came to know the conspiracy by Himmat Gusain. Doti Kalyan Chandra came to Tarai with army. His army pushed the army of Himmat Gusain. Himmat Gusain had to flee and took shelter in Anvla under Ali Muhammad Khan Rohila.
Around 1742, Hakim Ram Datt Adhikari informed the King that Himmat Gusain was taking shelter under Ali Muhammad Khan Rohila. Doti Kalyan Chandra was conscious that Himmat Gusain could attack on Kumaon with Rohila army.
Doti Kalyan Chandra sent Hedi spy killers led by Duli Chand from Bhavar to camp of Ali Muhammad Khan Rohila. Duli Chand killed Himmat Gusain. Ali Muhammad Khan had already gathered necessary information about all weak points and strong points of Kumaon kingdom from Himmat Gusain.
