Delhi Resident Metcalf ordered his assistant Frazer to reach Haridwar in second week of October 1814. Frazer was asked to meet Garhwal King Heir Sudarshan Shah to get information and to share if necessary. Frazer was asked to reach Meerut for future battle campaign of Dehradun after meeting Sudarshan Shah.
Sudarshan Shah was a natural hunter of Lion and in 1803, painter Ajabram painted Sudarshan Shah and his brother Devi Singh hunting Lion.
Frazer was also keen hunter and did not use elephant or other help in hunting the Lion. Sudarshan Shah invited Frazer for lion hunting and perhaps Frazer sat on the seat on Elephant. Frazer fired gun on a lion and injured lion jumped on elephant of Frazer. Frazer life was in danger. Watching the situation, Sudarshan Shah came for rescue and fired on injured lion. Shah saved life of Frazer. When the news reached to Company offices, Company officials praised the courage of Sudarshan Shah.
Frazer reached to Meerut and Sudarshan Shah stayed back in Kankhal.
When the company army reached to Dehradun, Sudarshan Shah, Shiv Ram and Kashiram also reached to Dehradun and met the Company officials.
According to Treasure record of Tehri Riyasat, Sudarshan Shah reached to Dehradun from Jwalapur Haridwar with Major Baldock and Lieutenant Menirith.
