Trapped in the Chakra Vyooh, young Abhimanyu fought like a lion. He killed Duryodhan's son Lakshman. But then, against all rules of war, he was attacked simultaneously by a number of Kaurav warriors.

The last blow was struck by Dushaasan's son. But before dying, Abhimanyu managed to kill him too.

He holds his own until his sword breaks and the remaining chariot wheel shatters into pieces. Abhimanyu gets killed shortly thereafter when Dushasana's son crushes his skull with ...more
