So, he has given the charge to catch the drug smugglers & their crime racket. Ranjit is quite aware of his duty. In his list Ranita & a biker named Antony are among the main suspects. He investigates thoroughly and finally catches both of them, but within a few minutes he has to release them as per as orders from his superiors. On the other hand, Ranita & Antony both have a separate life & mission. Apart from their business & crime, they both are very sensitive, kind & unfortunate in their personal lives. Antony was an unwanted child, brought up like an orphan and finally chose this proffession to earn his bread. He lives in a slum, helps the dwellers with his earnings stands beside them whenever they needed. He is known as the prince of thieves in his locality. Ranita also returns to her suburban home every night. She is also the bread earner of her poor family. Her father Satyasadhan Bhattacharya is an ex-teacher of the local highschool. Her sister Shampa & the bed-patient little brother Buban waits eagerly for her arrival. Her poverty, miserable family condition and brothers treatment forced her to choose this crime as proffession.

He sees her photograph and becomes surprised as the photograph resembles a lot with 'Ranita ' the main suspect among the drug maffias. he takes the photograph to the police artist and the truth reveals to him that Sarbani & Ranita' are the same girl only the make ups are different. Ranjit is very confused and decides to investigate the matter carefully. He reaches Sarbanis suburb home, meets her father who was his school teacher & sees the miserable condition of this family.

Thus, an innocent girl gradually turns into the queen Bee' of the city crime racket. They occurred a several numbers of crimes like bunglow robbery & drug smuggling. At the end of her story, she prays her 'Runuda' to forget & forgive her, as the girl he knew for years had died, and this is completely another girl. Ranjit remains silent, he can feel for the unfortunate girl. He decides to bring her back to the mainstream of life, from the darkness to the light, and to marry her after her punishment. He requests to stay herself away from the gang & promises to stand beside her family.
