KICHAKA. [Source: Dowson's Classical Dictionary of Hindu Mythology] Brother-in-law of the king of Virata, who was commander of the forces and general director of the affairs of the kingdom. He made love to Draupadi, and was slain by Bhima, who rolled his bones and flesh in a ball, so that no one could tell how he was killed.
