drstva ca musalam nrpa
O King Pariksit, when the inhabitants of Dvaraka heard of the infallible curse of the brahmanas and saw the club, they were astonished and distraught with fear.
tac curnayitva musalam
yadu-rajah sa ahukah
After having the club ground to bits, King Ahuka [Ugrasena] of the Yadus personally threw the pieces, along with the remaining lump of iron, into the water of the ocean.
King Ugrasena thought, “Samba and the others should not feel any shame or fear,” and thus without even consulting Sri Krsna he ordered the club ground to bits and thrown into the water, along with a small iron lump that remained, which he considered insignificant.
