From Bhaagvat Puraan, 10/p3
There was a king named Sahastraaksh in Paandu Desh. Once he was enjoying with his queens on the bank of Narmadaa River. Durvaasaa Rishi was passing from that side, but he did not greet him, so he got angry and gave him Shaap - "Go, and become Raakshas."
When he asked for Muni's forgiveness, Durvaasaa Jee said - "You will get Mukti from Raakshas Gati when you will touch Shree Krishn." The same Raajaa Sahastraaksh was born as Trinaavart and got Mukti from his Daitya Yoni with the touch of Shree Krishn.
