Manas is over-worked about the way the case has turned out. Manas gets into a verbal duel with Rhea and accuses her of supporting corrupt officers, so Ranjit begins to beat Manas. Rhea assures Ranjit and Kulkarni that Manas s action will make their case weaker. The doctor informs Simran and Abhimanyu that Manas will be arrested once he recovers. Rhea asks Simran whether she supports this case because Urmila and Manas are her friends or whether she genuinely believe in Urmila s case. Simran replies that she will not support even her closest friend if he s wrong. Rhea tells Ranjit that she would like to meet the female prisoners whom Urmila has named. Manas gets a bail. He says that he does not want any more injustices to be inflicted on Urmila and blames Abhimanyu for everything. Simran tries to reason with him but Manas refuses to heed her.
