             Hearsay could win only when there was sure defense for Kali valley. Hearsay came to know that there were 700 soldiers with Nepal resident Hastidal in Doti (now Nepal). Chief assistant of Nepal Resident Hastidal was Vikram Shah - a family member of ex-Doti King. Vikram Shah became Jagir owner of Nepal government. Vikram Shah also got Jagor of a couple of villages in Tarai. When Tarai came under British, Vikram Shah became Jagirdar of British in Tarai. Hearsay guessed that Hastidal with 500 soldiers could come to Kumaun and leaving 200 soldiers with Vikram Shah. Hearsay declared through British that if Vikram Shah oppose British his Jagir in Tarai would be dismissed. Hearsay declared to Tharu people of Tarai that they should not pay tax to Vikram Shah.
  Hearsay pulled attention of British that British did not have soldiers in Bareli district. Hearsay got permission for appointing irregular force. Hearsay appointed a Rohila sardar Amankhan as leader of 200 irregular Rohila soldiers. Before, 1803, Gurkha captured Jagir of a small King (Under Nabab). That king appointed Amankhan for recapturing his Jagir from Gurkha. Hearsay thought that Amankhan was best choice for attacking on Doti. Hearsay paid Rs 200 to Amankhan as advance and instructed Amankhan for attacking on Doti. The idea was to engage Hastidal in Doti.
   However, in past British appointed 500 Rohila irregular soldiers under Prithvipati Shah the ex King of Doti. Hearsaya advised British commander that PrithviPati Shah should attack on Doti with Aman Khan. However, British commander did not send Prithvipati Shah for Doti campaign.
