Diplomatic Relation of Mahipati Shah with Mughal / Mogul Empire

There is no record available about relationship between Garhwal King and Mughal, Mogul or Moghul Empire. There is mention of Shyam Shah in Mogul memories but not of Mahipati Shah. Mogul Empire died in 1627 and Shahjahan was crowned. Shahjahan was ambitious in expanding his rule all over India. However, Shahjahan was busy in other solutions and did not have any remarkable interaction with Garhwal King.
