Arun Rao, a young and promising police officer, is assigned to the case. His track record of solving complex crimes has led to his transfer to the Bombay police, from Poona.


Soon, one of the missing girls is found dead on the shores of Co lab a. The current crime has uncanny similarities to older cases from central India involving the royal family of jaiwar.


A chance encounter at the home of one of the victims brings Tara and Arun together and they join hands to unmask a murderer who has already struck once and will not hesitate to kill again.
