SB 10.57.6
strinam vikrosamananam
 krandantinam anatha-vat
hatva pasun saunika-van
 manim adaya jagmivan

Translation:
As the women of Satrajit’s palace screamed and helplessly wept, Satadhanva took the jewel and left, like a butcher after he has killed some animals.


SB 10.57.7
satyabhama ca pitaram
 hatam viksya sucarpita
vyalapat tata tateti
 ha hatasmiti muhyati

Translation:
When Satyabhama saw her dead father, she was plunged into grief. Lamenting “My father, my father! Oh, I am killed!” she fell unconscious.

Purport:
According to Srila Jiva Gosvami, Satyabhama’s anguished feelings and words at the death of her father were prompted by Lord Krsna’s pastime potency (lila-sakti), to prepare for the Lord’s violent reaction against Satadhanva.
