When questioned to show the defect, the Nambudiri tapped at a certain part with an iron rod. And lo! there emerged a frog, and water gushed out from a cavity inside. Though he silenced the public, he did not still the troubled mind of Thampuran. Just then the Swamiyar advised him to get the Parthasarathi image, he saw once in Kurichi, a small village, lying in the country of Thekkunkoor Raja, who unfortunately was his sworn enemy.

He was on the horns of dilemma. If it were to be taken by force, sure it would lead to war, and who knows how it ends. If stolen, it would be unbecoming on the part of a ruler to resort to such nefarions act. Consecration would desacrete the whole shrine and bring indelible shame to the Thampuran. Then they hit upon a plan. Accrdingly, the minister went to the village and bought the image. 

Later in the dead of night, with the help of soldiers, it was transferred to the boat lay in wait. Before setting out they opened fire into the air and beat drums indicating their taking home of the idol by force, and opponents if any might come forward to stop. The soldiers of Thekkumkoor did not expect this strategy; and further they were unprepared for that eventuality.
