The Pandavas were facing many hardships during their exile.
A Brahmin visited Dhritarashtra and told him about the their hard life.
Dhritarashtra felt sorry but Karna said, "It would be great if we
could see the condition of the Pandavas." Duryodhana agreed and
accompanied by Shakuni, they went to where the Pandavas were staying.
They put up their tents near the Pandavas' hut and made fun of them. One
day Duryodhana and his companions went to a lake for bathing. At that
time, Chitrasen, the king of the gandharvas (heavenly beings) also came to
the lake. There was a fight between Duryodhana's party and the gandharvas. Scared, Karna fled. Chitrasen used his Sammohanastra to make Duryodhana
motionless and captured him.
