Risālah dar radd-i bāb  (The Treatise in Refutation of the [Apostate] Suspicious Bāb" .

رسالة في رد  الباب المرتاب . See Ibrahimi, Fihrist No. 647 p. 511 in the section on Muhammad son of Karim Khan. Arabic tract in 3,200 verses apparently written at the request of Nāṣir al-Dīn Shāh and completed in 1283/1867. Three sections with a concluding section :Sect. 1  In refutation of the enemies of matters divine (adi`ā-yi uluhiyya), Imami issues and [claims of] Bābiyya. Sect. 2 On further causes of the infidelity of the Bāb. Sect. 3 is on some of the factions (madhāhib) and books (kutub) of the Bābis (bābiyya).  Conslusion.

The sources seem confused about the authorship of this anti-Babi treatise and its Persian translation. Karim Kahn Kirmani and his son and successor Muhammad Khan Kirmani are both connected with this (or two different) work(s) and its translation. To be clarified...
