The enigmatic story of the nun Mettiyā's expulsion from the sisterhood, seemingly for the false accusation of rape against the monk Dabba Mallaputta, has piqued the interest of modern scholars of Indian Buddhist monastic law ever since it was discussed by I.B. Horner in 1930. To date, however, no one has put forth a convincing explanation of the legal grounds for Mettiyā's expulsion. This holds true not only for modern scholars, but also it seems for the fifth century CE author(s) of the Samantapāsādikā, a commentary on the Pāli Vinaya.
