The 1st Punjab Cavalry, led by the English Major Hughes, had Afghan and Sikh soldiers. Fearing the activities of the revolutionaries, they attacked the village.

In this war, the brave revolutionaries fired bullets with guns. Ram Singh’s cavalry attacked the British army as soon as they came near and killed many soldiers. After losing from here, the English army again came in more numbers the next day, but due to the bravery of this brave warrior of Mother India, the Sikh Pathan army had to run away again. Due to two consecutive defeats, now the British sent bigger artillery and more soldiers. Many guns were martyred due to gunfire.
