But his evil company with Demon Banasura made him to follow his footsteps turning him into misdoings and have earned a title to his name as Narakasura.
He misused his powers brought all the kingdoms on earth under his domineering control. His Asura attitude turned his eyes to Heaven where even Lord Indra was overpowered and had to flee from the heaven.
All the Demigods, Devas and Sages led by Lord Indra took shelter under Lord Vishnu and asked him to relieve all from the clutches of the evil Demon Narakasura.
