From Viṣṇu Purāṇa:

Ashwathama killed foetus of Parikshit. He was not even born and was in his mother's womb when Ashwathama killed him. How can a person like him compile the vedas in the next Dwapara yuga and even be the next Saptaṛṣī of SUrya Savarni Manvantara.

    For that act he got punishment, right? Even other figures did some kind of sins for that they got punishments and retained/attained titles.. – YDS May 28 at 1:08

    If Indra can retain his post after so much of nonsense, so I don't see any problem with Aśvatthāmā being given same treatment. – peace May 28 at 2:05
