On 30 July, Ghulam Qadir and Ismail Baig took possession of the Red Fort and Raj Bhavan and locked Shah Alam in a small mosque and started looting the treasury and valuables.

The scandal continued for 68 days thereafter until he was removed from the Raj Bhavan. On 31 July 1788, Ghulam Qadir deposed Shah Alam and installed the title of ‘Nasiruddin Muhammad Jahan Shah’ to Bedar Bakht, son of the former emperor Ahmad Shah.

The slaves were tortured and the eunuchs were killed because they had not disclosed the secret. Those who died did not even go to the burial. In this way, 21 people are said to have died. Malika Jamani and Sahiba Mahal who met Qadir were also shown naked in front of the public due to not disclosing their wealth.
