|Canto 6: Prescribed Duties for Mankind||Chapter 3: Yamarāja Instructs His Messengers|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 6.3.9
chittvā pāśān prasahya te
nīyamānam — being brought; tava ādeśāt — by your order; asmābhiḥ — by us; yātanā-gṛhān — to the torture chambers, the hellish planets; vyāmocayan — released; pātakinam — the sinful Ajāmila; chittvā — cutting; pāśān — the ropes; prasahya — by force; te — they.
We were bringing the most sinful Ajāmila toward the hellish planets, following your order, when those beautiful persons from Siddhaloka forcibly cut the knots of the ropes with which we were arresting him.
Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī Ṭhākura remarks that the Yamadūtas wanted to bring the Viṣṇudūtas before Yamarāja. If Yamarāja could then have punished the Viṣṇudūtas, the Yamadūtas would have been satisfied.
