In conference room
There were some snake sketches, Arjun noticed that the face was not clear, no one saw their faces clear, they only saw their dresses. Shree informed them that after the icchadhari nag news, lots of people came to stay in resort in forest. Ayesha told them Mukul was thrown out from the previous newspaper as he published some news which garnered him fame but all the news turned out to be fake. Arjun concluded both were pretending and Rathod agreed.
Arjun caught a snake. Ayesha asked what Chotu had in his bags but he said nothing and marched away. In temple, Arjun asked chotu what he had in bag, Shree grabbed the bag and opened it, it had a been, chotu embarassed and said that maybe they could control the nag with it. Shree asked did he even know how to use the ‘been’, Chotu said yes but he did it upside down and later some fun been.
They heard some noise and went out expect Chotu, who found something there hidden and saw someone running away. He called everyone and she the snake costumes, he also shew them a shoe and it was sapera, Bhola’s.
Bhola was bitten by a snake, Shree called doctor, while Ayesha tied a cloth to stop the spread of poison. Doctor came and cured Bhola. A call on Bhola’s cell, Arjun picked it up and it was some man, Arjun told him Bhola was bitten by a snake. Mukul and Rupa entered thus clearing all the doubts in Arjun’s mind, they all were pretending as the icchadhar snakes. Bhola agreed, he took people in the forest and Rupa Mukal acted as Ichadhari Naag and Nagin. But they said that they did not kill anyone.
Mukul said that he was not even here, he was in Pune with Rupa for a meeting with a newspaper. Bhola said that was why he got worried hearing the gungroo noise and ran away. Bhola added that day he was with Vivek.
Arjun told Chotu to take the found snake in custody as well as the trio.
Liza informed them that poison was taken out forcefully from snakes. Arjun said so illegal snake poison business was going on in forest and that was why they found dead rats there. Liza added that ‘silver bromide’, a chemical for photos, was found on the skin of snake.
Manish Photo studio Lab- Arjun and Shree
Manish asked warrant but Arjun said that if they found anything he would need help. Arjun and Shree found three boxes there. In one there were several pots, next had a dead snake and the last living snake.
Sumitra was there, they also brought Manish there. Arjun said he had a doubt on her, as he remembered seeing her dance pics where she had gungroos, the same gungroos were tied on snakes, which were found in forest. Manish and Sumitra told them they threw dead rat there to attract snakes and then took out their poison illegally and sold it. But since the newspaper was spreading the news Ichadhari Naag Naging, people were coming there fearlessly, their business was getting over. They wanted to scare the trio. That they dressed up as the ichadhari snakes and created gungroo noise and thought all were go in different ways, but Vivek stayed with Bhola. They killed the other two guys but were not successful in killing Vivek and Bhola.
