Duhsala’s son Suratha was ruling the kingdom. After listening to the news of Arjuna coming towards the kingdom, he fells pale and dies of fear. Suratha had a young son who challenged Arjuna. Duhsala got very scared and begs Arjuna to live her grandson alive. Arjuna feels very sad to know that Duhsala’s son died because of him and appoints Duhsala’s grandson as king of Sindh.
