Everything that happens with Krishna is all good. Even Putana, the witch , she came to kill Krishna by giving poison on her breast , because Krishna sucked her breast like a mother although He sucked her life , He promoted Her to the spiritual realm to be His own mother in the spiritual world. And like this Krishna is so kind that even if a demon offers some nice service, then he reciprocates and gives them sarupya, salokya or some appropriate liberation. So actually the Lord is impartial. But some people are approaching Him in a particular mood and that is also one of His rasas. One of the seven temporary rasas is chivalry. So chivalry is manifested when you are fighting with someone and hardly can he fight with His devotees very often. So in the material world sometimes He comes and He fights with the demons and in this way He gets to relate on the chivalrous temporary rasa and satisfy that particular desire. Those demons are actually liberated for being aspiring partner with the Lord. So they actually are the benefactor of the Lord’s mercy. In fact in some cases those demons get liberated.
