When she did not submit to him, he avenged his defeat by kidnaping her daughter baby Madhuri. This was more than a shock which made Shanti Devi practically mad.

Ramesh brought up Madhuri till her prime youth under the guise of her uncle. One day, Ramesh entangled Madhuri in a murder which he had actually committed, and henceforth started black-mailing her. Now Madhuri's job was to strengthen the hands of smugglers and gangsters active under the leadership of Ramesh and his other partner Madan.

Two unemployed young friends Raj and Prabhu are in search of job. As per an advertisement to recover a lost girl they approached Shanti Devi who gives them Rs. 5,000/- towards the part payment of the Reward of Rs. 50,000/- just to meet the expenses during the search for Madhuri. They became Private Detective and with the help of the Police start their search round about the city. While on their vigilance in a night-cafe where a fair damsel was dancing they hear the shrieks of a girl named Sadhna whose necklace is stolen. It is Madhuri who, at the instance of Ramesh, committed this theft and passes it on to Madan. Apprehending his arrest Madan puts the necklace in Prabhau's pocket.
