    The irregular army of Hearsay was scattered here and there in March 1815.  Hearsay could have only less than 300 soldiers for protecting strategic Ghats /ports of Kali River adjoining to Nepal/Doti.  
            On 31st March 1815, his spies from Champawat informed Hearsay that 500 Gurkha soldiers crossed Kali River and entered into Kumaon that is 14 miles north of Kali River. Local spy informed that Gurkha were building fence in that place and the place was Garhi of Fartyal group. In fact Fartyal group was opponent group of Harshdev Joshi. That means that Gurkha spread rumors for deceiving hearsay. Hearsay sent that spy to Katolgarh.  Hearsay also marched in that night with 270 soldiers to the place sited by the spy. He had opinion that his soldiers would defeat Nepalese soldiers easily. Hearsay demanded 400 soldiers from Katolgarh.
           In evening the information became true. Hastidal entered into Kumaon by crossing Kali River   below that place sited by spy with his 1500 soldiers. Hearsay instructed his soldiers to stop marching of Hastidal. On 2nd April 1815, there was fierce fight between army of Hastidal and hearsay irregular soldiers at Khilpati five miles away from Champawat.
   The gun powder of Hearsay soldiers finished within short period. Hastidal army killed most of soldiers of Hearsay. Two brothers in laws –Nabajade of Cambai were there in battle.  Gurkha army killed one brother in law of Hearsay. Second brother in law of Hearsay slipped into valley and died there. Gulam haider Khan a campainion of Nababjade ran away from battle. Gurkha soldiers injured Hearsay badly. Gurkha soldiers started cutting head of injured and dead British irregular soldiers. Gurkha soldiers met Hearsay and brought them before hastidal. Once, in past hearsay saved life of Hastidal from a bear. Hastidal did not kill Hearsay but arrested him and brought Hearsay to Almora.
