                  Infighting among Thakurais of West South Himachal Pradesh
 By capturing Garhwal, Gorkha had rule up to east of Yamuna River. Beyond Yamuna east, in west Sirmaur Kingdom was there.
 In 1793, Ktoch King or Kangda King Sansarchand attacked on Kahllod /Bilaspur and captured   Gadhi (Forts ) of North Sutlej River from King Mahachand. Bilaspur King requested help from King Dharmaprakash of Sirmaur Thakurai or Kingdom. Mahachand agreed to pay one lakh rupees as gifts to Dharmaprakash. Dharmaprakash had small Thakurais under his Kingdom. They along with army of Dharamprakash and Mahachand reached to  Chartadu of Kangda Kingdom. Kangda King Sanasarchand came with his army to stop the force of Mohanchand and company. Sansarchand killed Dharmapraksh in battle of Chartadu.
     Dharmaprakash did not have any child. Therefore, his brother Karmpraksh ascended the throne of Sirmaur. However, many Sirmaur officers were unhappy by Karmpraksh getting the crown.  Those dissatisfied officers conspired for Kunvar Ratna Singh getting Sirmaur Kingdom. Ratnasingh was also brother of Dharamprakash.  The force of conspirators surrounded Karmprakash in Kangar Fort 32 miles away from Nahan. There was person who resembled with Karmaprakash. He was killed in the battle. The conspirators rumored that Karmaprakash is killed in the battle. There was chaos in whole of Sirmaur. Karmaprakash ran to Kalsi (Garhwal) with his fmailes. Ratna Singh was crowned as Ratnaprakash.
 Karmaprakash requested help from Gorkha Commander Ranjor Thapa the son of Amar Singh Thapa. Gorkha army attacked on Sirmaur for helping Karmaprakash. Gorkha captured Sirmaur and Gorkha expelled Ratanprakash and he took asylum, in Morni Fort. Instead of handing Sirmaur Kingdom to Karma Prakash, Gorkha included Sirmaur under Gorkha regime. Gorkha established their government there.  Karma Prakash was left in lurch. He stayed in Subathu of Ramgarh Thakurai for awhile and then fled to Buria where he lived till his death in 1826.
