Akampana rushes to Lanka to break the news of the death of Khara and Dushana

There are variations to this in other versions where Soorpanagai seems to break this news to Ravana. In Valmiki Ramayana, it is said that his spy Akampana informs this and suggests Ravana to abduct Seetha. Because parting with Seetha will cause intolerable grief to Rama leading to his death
Then on going hurriedly from Janasthaana and on speedily entering Lanka Akampana spoke these words to Ravana. [3-31-1]
"Oh, king, many demons positioned in Janasthaana are killed, Khara is also killed in war, and somehow I have come here. [3-31-2]
