Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Sūkarapeta:1.Sūkarapeta. A peta who lived on Gijjhakūta.His body was human,but his head was that of a pig; out of his mouth grew a tail,and from the tail oozed maggots.Moggallāna saw him and reported the matter to the Buddha.The Buddha said that he,too,had seen the peta.In a previous birth he had been a preacher of the Law,but,wishing to obtain possession of a monastery which he visited,he brought about dissension between the two monks who had lived there on the friendliest terms.After death he suffered in Avīci for a whole Buddhantara,and was reborn in the peta world.DhA.iii.410ff.

2.Sūkarapeta. A monk in the time of Kassapa Buddha,reborn as a peta on Gijjhakūta,where he was seen by Nārada.He had been restrained in his bodily actions,but had an evil tongue.He had the face of a pig.Pv.i.3; PvA.9f.
