Sudarshan Shah was still busy in downing the disturbances by unsocial elements in Ravain .In the meantime; he had to face the disputes and crookedness of Shivram Saklani family members.
Shiv Ram Saklani was decedent of Cabinet Minister of Garhwal King. Shivram Saklani died in 1818. British officer Frazer offered Tax Free Jagir of Athur , and Saklana Tehsil to Shivram Saklnai. There were 62 villages under those Tehsil. Frazer offered the Jagir of Bajwala (Dehradun) to Shivram Saklani because of his help to British against Gorkha. (1). His son Hari ram was minor at the time of his death. Therefore, Kashiram the nephew of Shivram became guardian of Hariram Saklani.
Shivram had cordial relation with William Frazer andMajor Baldock. (2)
Sudarshan Saha demanded tribute from Shivram as his Jagir was under Sudarshan Shah Kingdom. Initially, Sudarshan Shah did not have bad feeling for Shivram but when Shivram saklani showed his crookedness for demanding him as King from British, Sudarshan Shah was worried man (2). Tehri King Sudarshan Shah was ready Shivram Saklani as tax free Jagirdar under Kingdom but he was not ready that Shivram Saklani remained as free Jagirdar.
