                   In Night, when British army personnel were transporting Guns and other materials a few Gurkha army men came out of the Parsali (fortes) and hid on eastern corner. In morning around nine Am, those Gurkha soldiers jumped on for capturing the Guns. Gillespie had ordered for firing on Khalanga /Nalapani Garhi. Indian soldiers of East India Company Army ran after Gurkha with their Gun with bayonet. Gillespie ordered Carpenter and Ludlow to follow those soldiers and enter into Garhi. In night the order was that after two hours of getting signal the Company army should fire guns on Khalanga /Nalapani Garhi. Therefore, Gillespie sent the alternating strategy information to his other two other Commanders. Two groups were sent to each of two Commanders to send messages. However, the groups could not reach to exact destination as guides either deceived Company army and took the informers to wrong path or guides were also not aware of right path.
 Sitaram who reached to Garhi along with a few company soldiers did not mention about guides deceiving Company Army.  Williams mentioned that big stones on the path to Garhi, ascending steep slope were major hassles for British soldiers to reach Garhi. Secondly, the women, men and children constructed wall and fiancé around Garhi. The wall and faiences were again a big hassle for British army. The enemy had to use ladders for entering to Garhi (fortes).  Gillespie ordered the armed forces staying at camp to reach to Tharapani.
 The soldiers under Carpenter and Ludlow followed the Gurkha soldiers. However, the British Army soldiers were having load on their back and they could not run as fast as Gurkha Guerillas ran towards Garhi.
