During the Kurukṣetra (Kurukshetra) war, a massive army that specialised in combat using war elephants, and hailing from Eastern India, namely from the kingdoms of Aṅga (Anga), Baṅga (Banga), Puṇdra (Pundra) and Magadha, assembled at the Kaurava camp. Aṅgaputra (Angaputra) has been mentioned here as one of the warriors of this battalion. What he was really called is not known. Perhaps, since he was a hero of the kingdom of Aṅga, he has been identified in terms of his country. In Karṇaparva (Karnaparva) of Mahābhārata (Mahabharata), he perished at the hands of Nakula.
