                Inspired by ballyhoo in Sitoldhar, Gurkha soldiers of Almora Fort came out and attacked on British advance army and   tried to displace Howitzers in Deepchand temple. The wall of temple was low of height; Gurkha soldiers started jumping the wall and entered into temple yard.  British army soldiers fired guns and attacked other Gurkha soldiers by Gun bayonets. One Gurkha soldier was killed inside and other fled from temple. British army started firing Mortar in midnight.
        The fog was dense on that night and visibility was zero.  By firing of guns and mortars many Gurkha soldiers died but British soldiers were also killed by British army as it was not possible for British soldiers to recognize in foggy night. In early morning of 25th April, Lieutenant Taple came out of Temple for finding the sheltering place of Gurkha. He was killed by gun fire by a Gurkha soldier. Around 210 British army personnel were killed on that night.
           Nicholas was restless and worried commander.  It was non ending night for him. When there was sun rise in hill region, he got information that all the British camps are safe and Gurkha went back to shelters. Nicholas was aware that his soldiers are hungry for 24 hours. He arranged bread (Dabal Roti) , butter and tea and  he himself went to camps to see that his soldiers get food. He also distributed roasted gram and gud to soldiers .His subordinate Lieutenant Hey made understood that Nicholas (lat Sab) was peased by bravery of each soldier. From that day, Nicholas became darling of Bengal Army.
