Kūṭavinicchayaka-peta

One of Bimbisāra’s judges, who was a cheat, a slanderer, and a taker of bribes, once observed the fast for half a day through a friend’s persuasion. He died that night and was born as a Vemānika-peta. He enjoyed divine pleasures, but was condemned to eat the flesh off his own back in expiation of his evil deeds.

Nārada saw this hungry ghost (peta) and reported his story to the Buddha. Pv.iii.9; PvA.209 f.
