He threatened to unveil the truth to the world. Rai Bahadui used his position to turn the tables on him and framed him for the crime instead. He was sentenced to life imprisonment. As his father did not want to spoil Ajay's future and didn't want him to be known as a criminals son, he asked Ajay's mother to leave the town and live elsewhere as a widow and made her promise that she would never tell Ajay that his father is alive and is in prison.
