The king soon learnt that he had sent his wives to a demon and came to battle with him.
On seeing him, the demon rushed up a red silk cotton. While ascending, he pulled out his teeth, one by one, and stuck them on the tree trunk. The king, climbing up after him, could not get pass the long, sharp teeth embedded in the trunk and finally gave up the chase. He posted guards at the foot of the tree and left.
Kaliya Dano never came down from the tree, but ever since the encounter between him and the King of Judagarh, red silk cotton trees have had thorny trunks.
