Iqbal’s man informs him that the three prisoners with Kaal were bribed.
Raja accepts in front of Rani that he had bribed the three prisoners to go into jail with Kaal. He had never thought Kaal would run away from jail. Rani cries wondering why he did so, what if an innocent girl had died. Raja insists for him, only Rani’s life matters. Ambika says Raja did right, to handle bad people right paths never work.
Iqbal comes to Rani’s office, Rani asks if he has forgotten what she told him yesterday. Iqbal reminds her of her oath, and no law allows an MNA to hide her husband’s sin. If she think she can save her husband out of her power he won’t let this done; he would inform everyone how he let Kaal run away from jail so that he is kept imprisoned always. Rani shouts at him to shut up. Iqbal says if she wants him to stay silent, she must sign these papers else his men would inform newspaper journalists about Raja’s reality. Today he is giving her 30 minutes time, he is leaving these papers here. She must call him that she has signed these papers.
