Joginder Pal kills a police constable, and Mr. Saxena becomes the only eye-witness to this murder. He comes forward to testify and as a result Joginder gets arrested and charged with murder. Joginder's father Mr. Pal is Saxena's best friend and pleads with Saxena to change his witness statement, but Saxena refuses to do so, and as a result Pal's son gets convicted and sentenced to death.

Ramesh and his parents oppose this and Ramesh even threatens to kill the girl. Shortly afterwards, the girl gets killed, and a drug-induced Suresh immediately believes Ramesh to have commited the murder.
