                     Sudarshan Meeting with Moorcroft
            According to Records of Tehri Riyasat, Sudarshan Shah met Moorcroft and his son (as in record- Moorkirpat sahib and Chhota sahib Moorkirpat).  Moorcroft was superintendent of Stable in Tiruht. In 1812, Moorcroft visited west Tibet via Garhwal in dress of a sage. From 1812, Moorcroft was eager to push Gurkha east of Kali River. Along with Hearsay, Harsh Dev Joshi and Sudarshan Shah, Moorcroft sent strategic information to John Adam and Governor General for displacing Gurkha from Central Himalaya. The timing would be 1811-12 for meeting of Sudarshan Shah with Moorcroft and his son.
   In 1818, Moorcroft reached to Tehri and met Sudarshan Shah. On that time he did not have his son with him.
                      Sudarshan Shah meeting Ochterloni
      It seems that Sudarshan Shah met the Lord Lake in Punjab. In record it is written that Sudarshan Shah met ‘Ssaikal Sahab’ of Karnal and Hansi wale Sikandar sahab’ in Karnal. Hansi Sikandar is recognized as Colonel Skiner.
 It seems that in rainy season of 1814, Sudarshan Shah met Ochterloni. On 21st August, Ochterloni sent a letter to John Adam that the Company should capture Dehradun, Karyadoon, Sirmour and should hand over the territories to their respective past Kings for getting buffer trade territory for Company reaching to Tibet.
