Sarbazy Zhasyby batyr were at the pass to Shoyynkol, and Olzhabay batyr with their warriors were at the pass to Lake Toraigyr. Dzhungars attacked the Zhasybay detachment, and Olzhabay hit them from the rear. Zhasybai batyr perishes in a battle. Olzhabay courageously fights with the enemy.
Seeing his formidable face, Tortuyl Baimurat Batyr said: “There is no one left who could go against you, rest, give me the opportunity to fight the enemy.” To which Olzhabay responded: “The price of even one finger of Zhasyby has not yet been replenished,” and continued to exterminate the jungar.
