Duryodhan commands Ashwathama, the new commander-in-chief, to kill the Pandavas. Ashwathama, Kripacharya and Krit Verma arrive at the Pandava camp in the middle of the night as Dhristadyum and Draupadi's five sons are sleeping. They kill all the sleeping warriors and set fire to the camp. Believing that they have killed the Pandavas, they return to Duryodhan and discover that he has died. They light Duryodhan's pyre, and go to Sage Vyas's ashram. The Pandavas find Ashwathama with Sage Vyas and take their revenge.
