Ravan failed to admit the fact and refused to part with the baby. But the his royal duties forced him to give up his most precious treasure, Sita. Ravan and his minister decided to hide the news of the baby’s birth from everyone, including Mandodhari (She was still unconcious). The news that the baby was still-born was relay to the entire country. So it was decided that the baby was to be placed in a well decorated box and be thrown into the sea.
