Raju bhai calls Inder. Give me my money tomorrow. Inder fumbles in agreement.
Inder is sitting sadly. Kalpana notices Inder sitting sadly in a corner. Manoj tells him about it but Inder is worried about Raju bhai. Manoj knows that Raju bhai is very dangerous. One of his acquaintances had taken money from Raju bhai. Raju bhai had beaten him in the middle of the road. They can go to any extent to get money. Inder suggests going to the police but Manoj tells him against it. only think of a way of repaying Raju Bhai his money.

Inder is not feeling well. He takes his food upstairs. Gautam gives 3 lacs to Neha to keep it safely. Inder overhears it. Manoj gives an idea to Inder. Let’s kidnap Golu. It is just a way to extract money from Gautam Chacha. We will only ask for 1 lac. Inder is reluctant. He gets Raju bhai’s call again. he requests for some more time and gives an excuse. Inder finally agrees for Manoj’s plan. I cannot kidnap him though as he is very smart. Manoj agrees. Inder tells him to be careful. He should not have any problem. Manoj nods.
Manoj offers lift to Golu. Golu sits on the scooty right away. Manoj is surprised. He sat on the scooty so easily? I thought I will have to force him. Inder is waiting for Manoj’s call on Gautam’s phone. The call comes. Gautam warns him of police. Manoj tells him to go and check in his house. Gautam and Inder head home.
Manoj cannot understand how come Golu came with him so easily. He wears his helmet in front of Golu so he cannot see him. The scooty will take some time in repairing. We will have to wait for a while. Golu knows about his identity. You could have dropped me home. Why did you bring me here in this heat! Manoj is surprised. He is really as intelligent as Inder had said. Golu tells him that he is not mad. I don’t go with just about anyone. I know you are Inder bhaiya’s friend which is why I came with you.

Manoj doesn’t let Golu go home in a rickshaw. It isn’t safe. Golu agrees. Manjo gives him more chocolates. Manoj informs Inder about the same. Inder scolds him but then suggests him to show videos to Golu. Handle him for a while. We will return him as soon as we get money. Manjoy asks him if he is sure Chacha will bring the money. Inder agrees. Manoj too calms down. Golu overhears the plan. Golu calls him a kidnapper. I will tell the truth to everyone. My Inder bhaiya is very good. You are bad. You have kidnapped me. Golu tries to go away but Manoj ties him up. He even gags Golu.
Inder wants to accompany his Chacha but Gautam suggests him to be at home to support Neha. I will bring Golu home safely. He leaves. Inder updates Manoj about the same. Inder gives him an idea as to how to make Golu unconscious. I had seen him in a film. Later I will explain everything to Golu. Manoj is hesitant but then agrees.
On the other hand, Golu is able to free himself from the ropes. He runs out of the house but Manoj hits him with something on his head. The world blurs around Golu. Inder bhaiya save me! He falls unconscious.
Gautam drops the bag of money at the said place. Manoj picks it up.
Its been 3 hours since Gautam has left the money there. He is getting impatient. I should have gone to the police station. The door bell rings. It is Kabir. Kabir notices their tensed faces. He takes Gautam to the police station to register a complaint. Inspector takes Golu’s photo and details. We will update you as soon as we find out anything about him. Inder goes to call Manoj.
Manoj is sitting sadly. Inder comes there. He asks for Golu. Inder finds blood coming out of Golu’s nose. Manoj tells him that I did what you told me. I hit him with a sock full of sand. I had no idea that he will die because of such a small smack. Inder sits down dejectedly.
Inder confesses his crime. He died because of me. I have cheated everyone. Please punish me. he apologizes to Gautam and Neha too.
