LAMBE HAATH is the story of those who dress white and deal BLACK.

One of these was Seth Brahm Dutt and his partner Ved Pal who were engaged in the nefarious trade of manufacturing spurious drugs. The Mass of wealth they collected came from the wasted health and lives of people who asked for Succour, Sympathy and medicine and got their drugs instead. Where man fails, Nature requisites and through the agency of his own drugs Brahm Dutt lost his only child. This drove him crazy and in his repentance he resolved to reform, but the plat of evil takes roots quickly and resists uprooting. An altercation ensued between him and his partner, in which evil took also the life of Brahm Dutt.

The Murderer absconded and the allegation of murder was imposed on his accountant Baij Nath, who was found on the site of murder and who would not prove his innocence.

The investigating Inspector Ram was the younger brother of the Accountant but even he was convinced of the elder brother's guilt, blood relationship notwithstanding.

The only person who had faith in the innocence of the Accountant was his own small child Dabbu. Dabu took upon himself the task of disproving the allegations against his father. Young Dabbu was a Scout and he had the zeal and enterprise that marks a Scout but this young courageous cub was too much of a tiny tot for this stupendous game.

He played this turn- and so did the Black-hearted rogues.

Did he succeed or did succumb?

The proverbial 'Long Arms'  the Lambe Haath' of Law tightened its clutches on the wrong-doers how and how is the thrilling plot that makes 'Lambe Haath' a tale full of interest, thrill and delight.
