Chief of Eḷāra’s generals. He was slain by Sūrannimila (Mhv.xxv.54, 62 f). Bhalluka was his nephew (Mhv.xxv.76). He offered a red cloth (rattapata) at the Ākāsacetiya on Samantakuṭa (Sumanagiri). He was born in hell, but the sight of the fires there recalled to him his offering and he was immediately born in heaven (MA.ii.955; AA.i.375).
