Hearing this, Drona was grief sticken and confirmed the news from Yudhistra who is the person who always speaks truth. Krsna asked Yudhistra to play a trick. He told to tell Yudhistra in such a way that the truth will remain. Yudhistra told that Ashwattama, the elephant got killed. But he told the word elephant in a low tone as Drona could not hear.
