In the Puranas, Prasena is mentioned as the son of Nighana and brother of Satrajit. The Sun presented the Syamantaka gem to Satrajit, which he wore on his neck.
Satrajit was terrified as he thought that Krishna
would ask him for the jewel to give it back to his brother Prasena. Although the jewel was an inexhaustible source of good to a virtuous person, if it were worn by a man of bad character it would cause him death. Prasena having taken the gem, and hung it about his neck, mounted his horse and went to the woods to hunt. In the chase Prasena was killed by a lion. The precious gem afterwards came into the possession of Akrura.
