 At this moment Mukatlal’s servant Gopal rushed in with the news that jewels worth eight lakhs have been stolen from Makatlal’s safe and Prakash was one in the group of robbers. Who would marry a criminal’s sister? And paying no heed to the repeated requests of Prakash’s mother, the marriage procession returned back.

At midnight Praksh returned home himself from police but the cat was out of the bag. The prestige of the family and the happiness of his sister were already destroyed.
