Pintu drags Krishna inside. Krishna has contradictory thoughts of her father and her mother. She thinks about her mother and Swati and decides against sitting for the examination. Pintu loses control and slaps her. She says that she will sit for the examination but does not want to see Pintu's face ever again. As Dehati informs Bihari of Krishna being present for the examination, Satyanarayanji breaks the engagement. Pintu leaves after booking a car to take Krishna back home.
