While returning from pilgrimage a group of seat voyagers were waiting or high tide keeping their boat on the river bank. Nabakumar want to the jungle to find some wood. But before his return the high tide came and for the cooking other voyagers leave the place with the boat. After returning Nabakumar not finding the boat again went inside the jungle to find some shelter and he found a heritage of a Kali worshipper. That Kali worshipper brought Nabakumar in a thatched house and told him to wait. Nabakumar was very tired and fell asleep. Next morning while roaming in the jungle Nabakumar immediately because the Kali worshipper was getting ready for a human sacrifice. But before he leaves the Kali worshipper came and facially brought Nabakumar to the sacrifice-ground. But Kapalkundala upset the ploy. Kapalkundala fled from the place with Nabakumar. She came to Adhikari's place. Adhikari asked Nabakumar whether he was married. Nabakumar said that he was married but as her father-in-law changed his religion to Islam he had moved action with his wife. Hearing his Adhikari arranged a marriage between Kapalkundala and Nabakumar. Nabakumar was then ready to return to Saptagram. But on his way back he met an injured woman. She was looted by dacoits. Nabakumar reached her to a safe place. While discussing Nabakumar found that this woman was in first wife Padmabati, now Motibibi. Motibibi also identified her husband. As Kapalkundala was experienced in house hold works Nabakumar misunderstood her, he thought Kapalkundala did not love her. Motibibi met Nabakumar and expressed her love but he refused her. That Kali worshiper came to Saptagram to revenge on Kapalkundala. Kali-worshipper met Motibibi. The Kali-worshipper wanted to kill Kapalkundala but Motibibi did not want that, she wanted only a separation of Kapalkundala from Nabakumar. That Kali worshipper showed Nabakumar Kapalkundala met a man in jungle from a distance. Nabakumar thought it was the man whom actually Kapalkundala loved. But that man was actually Motibibi in man's disguise. Nabakumar forced Kapalkundala to come to the sacrifice ground. Kali-worshipper told Kapalkundala to go to the river to bathe before sacrifice. Nabakumar followed her, and after discussing with Kapalkundala he realised he had done a wrong. Nabakumar also dived in the river to save her. But neither of them was saved.
