One day Roshan pickpockets a poor man Mohan who had stolen Rs.3000 from the villain Sankar Seth to send it to his village where his mother & sister Sukul (Geeta Bali) live in poverty. The money was to be given to the landlord who had mortgaged their ancestral property. Shocked by the loss of Rs.3000, Mohan commits suicide.
