Sahir comes back with no news of Kokila and Urmila starts crying. She prays for Kokila and Gopi’s well-being. Gopi is on the chair when she wakes up after hearing bhajans outside in praise of Lord Krishna. Naiya goes to meet Prakash in jail in disguise but Prakash asks her to go back and says he won’t reveal her name. Naiya is talking to Prakash when the officer sees her and identifies her as Dharam’s daughter. She goes back and promises to come back later and the officer thinks that she’s also involved but decides to gather more proof first.
Gopi tries to escape from her room and spots an attendant coming towards her. She goes into the staff changing room and wears the staff uniform. Nurses realise that Gopi is missing from her room and follow her. Gopi runs outside the gate with nurses in pursuit.
The officer comes and tells Dharam about Naiya and that he will have to take her to the police station for interrogation. Dharam says that she cannot be involved in this. Meera, however, tells him everything, including how Naiya gave her a gun. Dharam calls her downstairs by shouting her name.
The CBI officer questions if she kidnapped Priyal with Prakash and she says yes. Dharam asks why she did that and she says that she loves Prakash. Daram slaps her. She tells him that she wants to get married to him and they did it for their own future and happiness and Dharam tells her that Prakash will stay in jail forever. Naiya takes a knife and cuts her hand saying that she’ll take her life if Prakash is sent to jail.
Gopi runs towards the Janmashtami procession and hides in the crowd. A new character named Jaggi is called for dahi handi. Kokila wakes up in a house and refuses to take the proffered glass of water. Kokila turns around and stops in surprise and Gopi feels the same when she sees Jaggi. Is it because Jaggi looks exactly like Ahem?
