However, Jafar failed to satisfy the constant demand of money from the British. In 1758, Robert Clive discovered that Jafar through an agent, Khoja Wajid, had made a treaty with the Dutch at Chinsurah. Dutch ships of war were also seen in Hooghly. Circumstances led to the Battle of Chinsurah and the Battle of Biddera. British Governor Henry Vansittart of Bengal proposed that Jafar was unable to cope up with the difficulties and Mir Qasim, Jafar's son-in-law, should act as Deputy Subahdar.
