                 Archibald Seton was Resident in the court of Shah lam II from 1806-1811. Then Moorcroft became resident and Gardner and Frazer were his assistants.  Delhi Residency was communicating with Central Himalayan Hill Sates. The Tehri records state that Sudarshan Shah communicated with Lat Yeral Maira Sa (Governor General Earl of Moyara). According to Tehri Records, Sudarshan Shah also met Adam. Tularam  a clerk under Frazer used to communicate with Hill Kings.
               Minya Prem Singh writes interesting incident about Sudarshan Shah meeting with Assistant Resident Frazer in ‘Guldast Tabarikh’. When east India Company decided to push Gurkha from West of Kali River, Kriparam Saklani and Jwalaram Saklani met Frazer in Delhi. Deceptively, Both had left Gurkha administration and were on the side of Company. Kriparam Saklani and Jwalaram Saklani pretended them as the Heirs of Garhwal King. Saklani assured Frazer that barring them there was no heir of Garhwal King. Sudarshan Shah got that information from his well-wisher. Sudarshan Shah communicated with Rampur Nabab. Rampur Nabab offered suitable elite dress for Sudarshan Shah, elephants and horses. Nabab gave a letter for Frazer and sent Sudarshan Shah to Delhi for meeting Frazer in Delhi. When Sudarshan Shah handed over the introduction letter of Rampur Nabab to Frazer, Kriparam was there. When Kriparam understood that his lies was caught Kriparam bent before Sudarshan Shah and requested for pardon.
   Frazer accepted Sudarshan Shah as real heir of Garhwal King. Frazer advised Sudarshan Shah to meet Sir Edward Colebrook the agent of Governor General. Colebrook also accepted Sudarshan Shah as Heir of Garhwal King. Colebrook informed Sudarshan Shah that British army would attack on Dehradun and on that time Sudarshan Shah should accompany British Army. Colebrook also advised Sudarshan Shah to provoke Garhwali People for revolting against Gurkha (Preamble, Invasion of Nepal).
