After the death of the great hero Karṇa, Dutyodhana, deeply aggrieved, went to spend some time at the plains under Himālaya (Himalaya), along with some other kings. Ariṣṭasena(Arishtasena) was one among the kings, who spent the night there in company of Duryodhana, along with Śalya (Salya), Citrasena (Chitrasena) and Śakuni (Sakuni). So it can be understood that Ariṣṭasena was one of the warriors of the Kaurava army.
