Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Kūtavinicchayaka: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 peta and reported his story to the Buddha.Pv.iii.9; PvA.209f.
