A monk, one of the associates of Devadatta, mentioned with Kokālika, Katamoraka Tissa and Samuddadatta.

They helped Devadatta in his attempt to cause a rift in the Sangha (Vin.ii.196; iii.171).

Khandadeviyāputta defended Devadatta when others blamed him (Vin.iii.174) and was held in great esteem by Thullanandā (Vin.iii.66; iv.335).

The Khuddakapātha Commentary (KhpA.126) mentions him in a list of wicked persons, together with those mentioned above, Ciñcamānavikā, and the brother of Dīghavidassa.
