Dowson's Classical Dictionary
of Hindu Mythology] A monster
Rakshasa, brother of Vaka. He opposed the entrance of the Pandavas into
the Kamyaka forest, and threatened that he would eat Bhima. A furious
combat ensued, in which Bhima and he hurled large trees at each other,
but the demon was at length strangled and had all his bones broken by Bhima.
