However, before he can loot the place, he comes across a woman named Shanti (Meena Kumari). He finds out that she is a widowed daughter-in-law who has been left by her cruel relatives to die. Shaka nurses her back to health and in the process develops a liking for her. When her relatives return, they are displeased to see Shanti well and healthy. They also come to know of the robbery attempt that took place at their home. Shanti is blamed for the robbery attempt and is beaten. Shaka saves her from the beating, and the pair flee. Shanti stays at Shaka's house, much to the annoyance of her neighbours and relatives.
