Simhika also happens to be the sister of Kirmira. Saardduula is killed by Arjuna. To take revenge, Simhika decides to abduct Draupadi and present her to brother Kirmira. To achieve this goal, Simhika takes the form of Lalita (a beautiful woman) and approaches Draupadi. She wants to show Draupadi, a Durga temple in the forest. This is the context of the Ravivarma picture.

Later Draupadi suspects foul play and refuses to go. Simhika resumes her original form and forcefully takes away Draupadi. Hearing Draupadi's cries, Sahadeva comes and cuts off the nose and breasts of Simhika.

This is followed by the encounter between Kirmira and Bhima and the killing of Kirmira
