The incident I am talking about is this:

Finally, Krishna and Nagnajiti departed towards Dwarka, accompanied by their army to protect them. On this way, they were attacked by the princes who had lost in Nagnajit's bull challenge. Krishna's army yielded by his Yadava clan warriors and his friend Arjuna defeated the princes and chased them away.

Source- Wikipedia

Also, from Quora:

When Lord Krishna married Nagnajiti, many unsuccessful suitors of royal lineage attacked Krishna. Arjuna defeated all of them single handedly without killing them, on Krishna’s orders.

My question is- In which section of the Puranas is this incident found?

  • We didn't quote the sections of Purana. Quora answerer did. So, you should ask the answerer there. Did you try that? Wikipedia didn't mention any claim. Ask question properly. This is not a forum where question title is everything. edit the question more clearly and properly. – Sarvabhouma Mar 12 '18 at 8:53

  • @sarva.. Read the wiki link.. the first BQ in this Q is as per Bhagavata Purana.. and OP wants to know where exactly in that Purana is this story found.. – Rickross Mar 12 '18 at 18:13
  • @Rickross See the reason I gave while I edited the question. What is given in the question is important for us. We should edit based on what is quoted in the question body or title.and not in the total wikipedia article. Why not add Vishnu Purana, Harivamsha etc. If you consider whole wiki while editing, you will probably add answer in the edit. – Sarvabhouma Mar 12 '18 at 18:16

    @Rickross Wikipedia may know it's from the Bhagavatam, but the OP is not evincing knowledge that it's from the Bhagavatam. So we shouldn't edit the question with Bhagavatam. – Keshav Srinivasan Mar 12 '18 at 18:45

The story of Krishna's marriage with Nagnajiti is present in the fifty-eighth chapter of the tenth canto of the Bhagavata Purana:

O King, Nagnajit, the very pious King of Kośala, had a lovely daughter named Satyā, or Nāgnajitī. (Bhagavata Purana 10.58.32)

When the intolerant kings who had been rival suitors heard what had happened, they tried to stop Lord Kṛṣṇa on the road as He took His bride home. But just as the bulls had broken the kings’ strength before, the Yadu warriors broke it now. Arjuna, wielder of the Gāṇḍīva bow, was always eager to please his friend Kṛṣṇa, and thus he drove back those opponents, who were shooting torrents of arrows at the Lord. He did this just as a lion drives away insignificant animals. (Bhagavata Purana 10.58.53-54)
