Killing of Opponents by Mohan Chandra
According to Pande, a few elites from Kumaon brought Kunvar Jodh Singh Katehar (son in law of late King Deep Chand) of Amarpur with his son Shubhkarn Singh. However, advised by Mohan Chandra, Nand Ram did not help Kunvar Jodh Singh Katehar and Jodh Singh returned back to Amarpur.
B.D. Pande also writes that another group from Kumaon inspired Shekh and they attacked on Kumaon through Vanani Devi. Army of Mohan Chandra defeated those Shekh soldiers in a hill Gadhi above Vakh.
Mohan Chandra killed or put the supporters and relatives of Shiv Datt Joshi. Lakshmipati Joshi the assistant of Harsh Dev Joshi was coming to pay tribute to court of new King Mohan Chand. Laksmi Pati Joshi was hanged on a cedar tree near Almora. Many Joshi families fled from Kumaon to other parts of plains. Harsh Dev Joshi fled to Bareli from Kumaon prison. Jaya Nand Joshi with other Joshis also ran to Bareli.
Joshis getting Active in Bareli
Joshi families were gathered in Bareli. They did not have any work for earning. They came to know that army of Garhwal King Lalit Shah was defeated by Sirmaur (Himachal) army in Sirmaur.
Joshi made a strategy to involve Garhwal King into internal politics of Kumaon.
Harsh Dev Joshi wrote letter to Garhwal King Lalit Shah,” We are capable to win Champawat (Kumaon Kingdom) and Sirmaur Kingdom for you. Since, you did not involve the ministers and citizens of Sirmaur for your attack, you could not win Sirmaur.
We all Joshi are now in Bareli. After winning Kumaon, we shall win Nahan (Sirmaur) for you. Your three sons would be King of Garhwal, Kumaon and Nahan (Sirmaur) respectively.
Lalit Shah forgot the history of past about Joshi inviting his grandfather Pradip Shah to attack on Kumaon and a bitter insult for Pradip Shah.
Lalit Shah wrote back to Harsh Dev Joshi to visit Shrinagar immediately.
