Roy saheb, realising that all his future hopes are being shattered due to volcanic refusal of his son, instructs his men to take away Nimo from his purchased village-Anokha, and his loyal guards remove Nimo from the scene, by throwing her deep into valley from high cliff, in the presence of her lover Rajesh and an adopted sister-friend Reshma.
