Without breaking his promise, Vasudeva gave the information to kamsa about the birth of the eighth baby. Kamsa rushed to the prison, snatched the baby from Devaki's hands. Seeing that it was a female child, he was a little carefree but still he threw it up and waited for it to fall on the stone and die.
