G.C.Dwivedi writes Broadly Jai Singh’s problem was two fold; first, he had to steer his way through the impregnable and thorny jungles to Thun to invest it effectively, secondly, at the same time he had to cope with surprise attacks of the Jats. The task was indeed a difficult one, but remaining unperturbed, the Raja put up great exertions from the very beginning. He began to clear the jungles and make trenches, sabats and posts to station his selected troops. [2], [3], [4], [5], [6] But the Jats taking shelter in the jungles and nearby garhis often engaged and harassed the assailants. Thus, Muhkam Singh attacked the Raja’s forces near Bahaj (Bahore, 9 miles west of Govardhan) and after a little fight, drove them back. Again on 11 December 1716 was reported another fierce contest at Thun, in which the Raja overpowered the Jats. [7], [8], [9], [10] But the over all progress was very slow, which irritated the Emperor. On 13 March 1717, he wrote, disapprovingly that though seven months had elapsed since the Raja’s appointment, Thun had not been “invested (even) from one side, not to speak of its conquest... the Jats come out under its (jungle’s) shelter and attack the royal army. [11], [12], [13]

अखबारात 13 जिल्हज हि. पृष्ठ-11 के अनुसार - सिनसिनवार वतन में प्रवेश करने से पहले मुग़ल सेना की टुकड़ी को बहज गाम के पास सौंख के तोमरवंशी जाट राजा हाथी सिंह खुटेल ने घेर लिया. इस समय हाथी सिंह के साथ अडिंग के जाट ठाकुर (राजा) फौंदासिंह के बड़े कुंवर भुवन सिंह, हाथी सिंह के पुत्र श्याम सिंह, तोफा सिंह ओर अपने पांच सहस्त्र सैनिकों के साथ शामिल हुआ. भीषण लड़ाई हुई जिसमे मुगलों के बहुत से सैनिक खेत रहे. खुटेल वीरों के आगे शाही सेना पीछे लड़ गई. फारसी लेखको ने इस लड़ाई को 13 जिल्हज के दिन होना लिखा है जो नवम्बर माह में हुई थी. इस युद्ध में चूड़ामणि के पुत्र मोहकम सिंह भी शामिल हुआ था जो उस समय सौंख के दुर्ग में आया हुआ था[14].

दिसम्बर में मोकहम सिंह सिनसिनवार और मुगलों की शाही सेना के मध्य थून के जंगलो में संघर्ष हुआ. शिवदास सिंह कृति के अनुसार जाटों के डुंग सरदारों ने मुगलों और जय सिंह के इस अभियान को असफल बना दिया.
