The extended territories of Nepal covered on the frontier of Purnea in the east, on those of the frontiers of Gorakhpur and Saran to the South of Central Nepal and on the frontiers of Bareily in the west.2 It was common to emerge out some disputes on the adjoining borders of the two forces. The dispute arose since 1806 between Nepal and British India and reached on the height by 1814. The border dispute to the context of Gorakhpur and saran took the serious turn after the Butwal and Syuraj (Shiva Raj of present Kapilvastu) scuffle The Nepalese were compelled to capture 22 villages in the Saran district. The Nepalese Government was ready and prepared to hand over the 22 districts as to be settled by the Commission. However, the Company mainly on the supervision and dominance of the Marquess of Hasting was determined to extend the British Government's sovereignty over the lands in India controlled by the East India Company. This mandate was conferred on the renewed Charter of the Company. Thus, the Company's Government was the first to use force to invade and capture Butwal and Syuraj. As the Nepalese troops recaptured these two villages on 29th May, the British planned overtly and covertly to invade Nepal from the west, south and east porous lands.
