Ashok gives her no peace as he is always in the midst of some trouble or the other. One day she decides to return to her parents. Ashok pleads with her to return. She agrees on one condition that from now on Ashok will not indulge in violence. Bhabhi gives him a chain with a locket. Ashok says that this will refrain him from acts of violence.
