He was warned about his death by Devaki's voice from the sky. King Kans had imprisoned his sister and her husband because of a prophecy that predicted his death at the hands of their child.

Krishna later receives formal education under the guru Sandipani, where he learns about the Vedas, Upanishads, and other scriptures. Meanwhile, Kans becomes increasingly tyrannical and feared by his subjects. He appoints demons like Putana, Bakasura and Trinavarta to kill Krishna.
