One day a crony catches Maya and Arjun together. Arjun receives severe punishment. On the day of his sister’s wedding while everyone is at the wedding, Arjun sneaks into Sualaal’s home to meet Maya. When Saulaal can’t find Arjun at the wedding hall, he immediately returns home and severely inflict pain on him. He is, however, restrained by his servants. They tell him that if he creates a scene, people will learn about his wife’s affair which would shame him. He decides to frame Arjun in a rape case of his buffalo “Miss Tanakpur”.

Arjun is taken into custody, bringing shame and grief to his family. His sister’s wedding is cancelled. His father goes on a hunger strike and dies. The police severely beat him and when he is brought in front of a court, the judges order prosecution to present the victim, Miss Tanakpur.
