  British strategists instructed Hearsay for capturing ‘Timla Ghat’ on the north of Pilibhit , heading to Kali River valley and destroying Jhula (rope bridges ) on the river. By destroying rope bridges on Kali River would make difficulties for Hasti Dal army crossing Kali River and entering into Kumaon.  However, in early February 1815, a few prisoners of Bareli Jail attacked on jail guards.  Prisoners took away weapons and freed other prisoners too. By night, after capturing weapons, the prisoners were busy in fighting with guards sent by British command. Later on prisoners escaped by leaping jail walls.  That was the reason that Hearsay had to delay his campaign.  The army company of Shahjhanpur that was supposed to company with Hearsay was kept for while for administrating in the locality. Therefore, army company of Shahjahanpur could not report to Hearsay as per schedule. British commander instructed Hearsay for appoing new 300 irregular Rohila soldiers.
 The resposnibilty of Hearsay was to defend the Ghats of Kali River spreading 43 Kos. Hearsay had to defend Ghat of Kali River. However, Hearsay was in hurry to win over Gurkha that he could get Jagir in Dehradun. When on 13th February 1815, Hearsay reached to Bilhari of Pilibhit his 150 soldiers out of 1500 soldiers could not march. Those soldiers were kept at some strategic places as under –
 10 Soldiers in Pilibhit for defending Kamsariyat
50 Soldiers in Shahjhanpur for protecting Jail
16 Soldiers in Fatehgarh  for protection of battle articles
5 Soldiers in Bareli for appointing new soldiers
5 Soldiers in Bareli  for protecting soldiers and dresses etc
50 Soldiers in  Balihari for protection of Depot
12 ill Soldiers in Balihari  
 Before, Hearsay reached Balihari, Gurkha soldiers ran away from Balihari. Hearsay established his camp in Balihari. Hearsay instructed his Gun powder making workers for producing gun powder, On 13th Gardner also captured Chilkiya Ghat. Gurkha soldiers put poison in wells before leaving Bilhari. By taking poisonous water 78 soldiers of Hearsay fell ill.
