If I were in your place, I would not dare to take the risk as all of Devaki’s children will be capable of killing you”.  After sowing the seeds of suspicion in Kamsa’s mind, Narada vanishes from there. Without wasting a second and without a second thought Kamsa rushed to the prison and killed the baby. He killed every one of the six babies born to Devaki and Vasudeva.  The seventh Child was none other than Adishesha, another aspect of Narayana.  However this child was not destined to meet the fate of the previous 6 infants.
