Subsequently, Billo is attacked by the scoundrel Labhu Ram. She is rescued by a kind-hearted tonga driver Fauji, who provides her shelter in his own house. Fauji’s brother, Mauji is surprised to find the young and beautiful Billo at home when he returns from work. The two soon fall in love, and take a sacred oath to remain faithful to each other forever.

Meanwhile, Nain Sukh and Bauntar Mal travel to the city in search of Billo. They enlist the help of Labhu Ram. When Mauji and Billo return home after they have sanctified their vows, they are shocked to find Labhu Ram and Nain Sukh there, accompanied by the police.
