Enchanted by her beauty, a sorcerer named Singhia tried to entice her by the back magic he possess. Once, he charmed one of Ratnavati’s maid and sent magic oil for her. Ratnavati who also used to keep a bit knowledge about the black magic came to know sorcerer’s trick and throw the oil away on the huge boulder, as a result, the boulder was started rolling on the ground and crushed the sorcerer. Before dying he cursed the city to never be inhabited again and Bhangarh will destroy to death.”
