Once he was roaming through the thick forest with his courtiers and bodyguards. He was oblivious of the fact that he was invading the premises of tribes who used to believe in human sacrifice and cannibalism. Once king Chitrasen entered their premises with his people, they were furiously attacked by tribal men in the forest. The king and his army did not get any chance of evading a capture of this surprise attack. They all were wounded and imprisoned without wasting any time. The king and his courtier are only alive at their mercy. The king was petrified and dumbfounded by the tribal men's confabulation. Because they were planning to give the sacrifice of king Chitrasen in front of their deities. They had their strange notion about the sacrifice of a living human.
