The fully equipped mughal army which consisted over 2000 infantry and cavalry with canons & elephants etc. and was led by Karthalab Khan, Rai Baagan, Jasvantarao Kokate and Jadhavrao. The Maratha army was led by Shri Shiv Chhatrapati himself The Great Shivaji had utilized his knowledge of the Sahyadri to the maximum and trapped the Mughal army in the dense forest of the pass using his famous warfare: The Guerrilla warfare. He and a handful of men attacked the army from higher side of the pass and one of his prominent men Netaji Palkar and few more men attacked from the Konkan side. February, being beginning of summers, the drinking water was scarce too. Kartalab Khan decided to surrender and sent his lawyer, Lady Raybaghan to The Great Shivaji. Soon the Army left with its leaders and the Marathas had won once again proving their rightful ownership on the terrain.
