It was custom in Indi and Garhwal that Kings used to appoint outsider soldiers in their private army. Garhwal King Pradyumna Shah had Nagarkoti soldiers in his private army in Shrinagar. Nagarkoti soldiers belonged to Himachal Pradesh. Nagarkoti Soldiers were brutal, bold and fearful image among local Garhwalis. Those Nagarkoti soldiers used to create fear among locals. Accoring to Shripur Lila, they were in 5000 in numbers but it seems the numbers escribe are exaggerating. They used to have long hair and were cause of groupism among Garhwal administration. Nagarkoti had terror in Shrinagar.
Once, there was disputes between strong minister Rampati Khanduri and nagarkoti soldiers. Prince Parakrama Shah was on the side of Ramapati. Parakrama Shah perceived Nagarkoti army as hurdle. He and Rampati exile Ngarkoti from Shrinagar.
