Sardar Jai Singh Of Kanhiya suddenly realized his mistake and made up his mind to fight the enemy. He retired from the battlefield and collected his troops and munitions. Jassa Singh Ramgarhia and Sansar Chand Katoch got busy in recovering their territories which Jai Singh had seized. Mahan Singh alone remained in the field. A battle was fought between Sardar Jai Singh Of Kanhiya and Sardar Mahan Singh Of Sukerchakia at Naushahra. Many men lost their lives on both sides. Jai Singh was repulsed. He fled away to Nurpur accompanied by Tara Singh and Jaimal Singh. Sardar Mahan Singh Of Sukerchakia pursued them. They entered the fort and started fighting. Mahan Singh soon realized that he had come a long way off from his base. He raised the siege and turned homeward. Sansar Chand received him in his camp at Dinanagar, and sought his help in recovering Kangra fort.

Jai Singh’s territory was divided among four partners. Jassa Singh Ramgarhia recovered his lost territory. Sansar Chand seized Hajipur, Mukerian and the whole couatry lying at the foot of the hills. Amar Singh Bagga fully established himself at Sujanpur, 7 kms north-west of Pathankot, at the foot of the hills in the corner of the Bari Doab, below Nurpur. Sardar Mahan Singh Of Sukerchakia seized Kanhiya territory worth three lakhs a year.
