In a village named Baggu Ghar there lives a tantrik Bhairavnath. The villagers approach him for justice and sometimes innocent people are killed by the Shaitan created by the Tantrik. 
The villagers and their Mukhia then decide that nobody from the village will go to the tantrik henceforth. 

After a lapse of some years a group of teen-agers from the city who had lost their way and accidently come to this village. Madhavi a village girl who is engaged to Karan is killed by three of the city men.

Madhavi leaves a letter saying that the city people had killed her. Karan vows to take revenge and goes to the tantrik against the wishes of the villagers and Mukhia. The Tantrik creates the Shaitan and tells him to kill all the people who have come from the city. The Shaitan starts killing them one by one. One day Madhavi's spirit comes and tells Karan to stop the killing as innocent people were also being killed. Karan tries to stop the Shaitan but he is unable to do so. Karan then realises that the Shaitan had been created from his own blood, if he kills himself then only the Shaitan will be killed. He then goes to the Shivas Temple and takes the Trishul of Lord Shiva and kills himself and in this way the Shaitan as well as the Tantrik are killed. Thus in the end good prevails over the evil.
