SB 10.34.31
avidura ivabhyetya
 siras tasya duratmanah
jahara mustinaivanga
 saha-cuda-manim vibhuh

The mighty Lord overtook Sankhacuda from a great distance as if from nearby, my dear King, and then with His fist the Lord removed the wicked demon’s head, together with his crest jewel.

SB 10.34.32
sankhacudam nihatyaivam
 manim adaya bhasvaram
agrajayadadat pritya
 pasyantinam ca yositam

Having thus killed the demon Sankhacuda and taken away his shining jewel, Lord Krsna gave it to His elder brother with great satisfaction as the gopis watched.

Various gopis perhaps thought that Govinda would give one of them the valuable jewel. To prevent rivalry among them, Sri Krsna happily gave the jewel to His older brother, Balarama.

Thus end the purports of the humble servants of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada to the Tenth Canto, Thirty-fourth Chapter, of the Srimad-Bhagavatam, entitled “Nanda Maharaja Saved and Sankhacuda Slain.”
