      Around 300 Gurkha soldiers were roaming on Hill of Song River before British captured Nalapani Fort. It was guessed that Gurkha commander Ranjor Singh from Nahan , Himachal deputed those soldiers for helping Balbhadra in Dehradun. Maubi decided that the Balbhadra company should not meet those soldiers around hill of Song River. Perhaps Randip Kaji was leading Gurkha soldiers around Hill of Song River.
    Balbhadra reached Dobar from Nalapani. Perhaps the Ranjor Company also met Balbhadra troop here. On 1st December Guru Singh a spy of Ludli  informed that a Gurkha troop is staying on Hill of Baldigad Gadan. On the same day, Ludli reached there with 450 Indian soldiers. In night the British soldiers saw fire on Balgad Gadan Hill. 100  Indian soldiers of British army with three officers raided on Gurkha troop at Balgad Gadan Danda (Hill). Gurkha soldiers were scattered and 60 Gurkha soldiers were killed. 4 British soldiers were injured. British army snatched two rod of flags from Gurkha. Maubi was happy and Hastings sent a congratulating message to Maubi and asked to reward Guru Singh for Rs 100.
