The Police Chief was mightily annoyed as he thought that Mandavya was posing to be a saint. They searched and discovered the booty. They pounced upon the Rishi taking him to be the leader of the gang. The matter was reported to the king who without applying his mind ordered that Mandavya be put on a Shool (a sharp - pointed planted iron shaft) which would immediately pierce a man through.

Mandavya was still in a meditation trance and though put on the Shool it did not pierce him through. He was kept hanging for days while he was continuing in his meditation.

The neighboring Rishis heard of this and rushed to the king. The king was amazed that any man could survive a Shool. He begged the pardon of the saint and immediately set him at liberty.
