After a few years

All four children grown-up at different places. Suraj has now become Johnny (Sunil Dutt), an underworld don. Chandu (Ramesh Deo) is a police inspector. Earlier, a  man (Randhir) rescued him from the village fair and started living with his foster mother (Purnima).

Grown-up Geeta (Sadhana) is a rough rough-and-tough woman who makes petty crimes for livelihood. On the other hand, Kavita is now Neeta (Sadhana in a Double Role), teaches school children and lives with a devious couple, who hands over Neeta to Mohan (Siddhu) for some money.

Mohan tries to molest Neeta, who does everything possible to escape from Mohan. However, in the meantime, someone stabs Mohan to dead.

Chandu (Ramesh Deo) arrests Neeta (Sadhana) in the alleged killing of Mohan. When Geeta learns about her sister Neeta, she decides to find the killer of Mohan. However, she does not know that it throws her into a life-threatening situation.

Raja (Feroz Khan) is a smuggler who works with Jonny (Sunil Dutt). He sees Geeta while some goons attack Geeta. Raja helps Geeta and befriends her.
