However, Avantika’s son, 17-year-old Mukul, feels abandoned, having to live under his stepsister’s shadow, leading him to have temper/ behavioral issues and seek drugs. One night, Zara and Mukul separately sneak out to a party. Mukul notices Zara at the party in a drugged state and forces her to get home as everyone watches. However, things don’t go as planned. The following day Zara goes missing, and her body is found caught in fishermen's nets in the sea - burnt with acid and wrapped in tarpaulin.
