A minister of the king of Benares arranged in secret with a band of robbers that when he had collected the revenue of a border village he would march his men off to the jungle, leaving the robbers free to secure the booty. The plan was carried out, and half the booty was made over to him; but his treachery became known and he was disgraced.

The story was related in reference to a minister of the Kosala king, who was guilty of similar treachery. J.i.354f.
