A Chief Minister is assassinated while visiting a small town. While two of his assassins are shot dead, the main assassin- Raja, gets away. A hunted animal, he seeks refuge in a house whose sole occupant at that time is a young crippled girl-Saroj.

Inspector Dandekar, who is already upset on his inability to protect the Chief Minister is desperate to nab the assassin and pursues him to the house. Raja uses the girl as a hostage to negotiate his escape and foils the Inspector’s attempt to apprehend him.

A huge crowd comprising the girl’s parents, close relatives, press correspondents, social workers and the local populace pressurize the Inspector to drop all his ambitious attempts to nab Raja. The helpless Inspector makes yet another attempt to outwit Raja with the help of a local nurse whom he instructs to administer a wrong injection to the crippled girl-thereby delaying Raja’s escape plans.
Meanwhile, in their moments of togetherness, Raja and  Saroj come close to each other. They develop a strange bond of companionship stemming from a deeper understanding born of each other’s ideals and compulsions. Saroj’s empathy for Raja grows deeper as he confides in her: he’s just a pawn in a massive power game.

His plan goes underway Using girl as a shield he races off to safe distance but he is followed by the police.

Does Raja manage to escape? Or is Inspector Dandekar successful? Is the man behind the assassination identified?

Well, you’ll just have to see Andha Yudh to get the answers.
