Watch the latest episode here.
Abhi reaches the bus stop as he is told with the money bag. He meets the man he is supposed to and hands him the money, but not before asking where Kiara is. The man is adamant to get the bag first and doesn’t tell Abhi any details about Kiara’s location. Just then, the police reaches and the man runs away. Abhi chases after him and the man skids on his bike and encounters a fatal accident. Abhi tries to get information but before revealing it, the man passes away. He is furious to learn that it was Ashish who sent the police.
Nikhil comes to know that his partner has been killed and that police had reached the spot. Abhi rushes back home and slaps Ashish, saying that he had specifically asked him not to send the police. He tells him that the police shot one of Nikhil’s men and they might hurt Kiara to seek revenge.
Nikhil is angry at his plan failing but his partner tells him to give Abhi another ransom call and get the money. He goes ahead with the plan and Abhi assures Pragya that he will bring Kiara back. The episode ends with Kiara asking one of the kidnappers to let her go.
In tonight’s episode, we saw Pragya and the rest of the family watching Abhi’s press conference on television. He announces Kiara’s kidnapping on the news channel and says that he will give the ransom money not to the kidnapper but to the person who gives him some information about Kiara. Nikhil and Tanu watch the news and are furious. Pragya breaks down and curses herself for not being able to save Kiara and says that Tanu is responsible for all this. Aliya tells Pragya that Tanu is not responsible and adds that she had even confronted her about it. Aliya however says that if Pragya wishes to visit Tanu and talk to her, then she will take her. Pragya says she wishes to do so.
Abhi returns and Pragya reprimands him for approaching news channels. Abhi defends himself by saying that the kidnappers wouldn’t have returned Kiara despite getting the money and adds that they would have killed her. Pragya slaps Abhi. He asks Pragya to calm down and assures her that he will get her back.
Abhi says that the only way to get Kiara back is to bribe one of the kidnappers with double the money. He approaches the media channels once again and announces that he is doubling the amount, for any information on Kiara. Tanu hides and observes Abhi. He almost spots her but she is quick, and runs away. Nikhil calls Abhi and tells him that his plan is stupid as no one will be able to give out any information on where he is hiding Kiara. Abhi tells Nikhil that he knows Kiara isn’t with him and that he is bluffing.
Nikhil asks one of his men to get Kiara and makes her speak with Abhi on the phone. She tells Abhi she is scared and Abhi and Pragya are shocked when they hear a gunshot in the background. They think Kiara is dead but Ashish says that they have heard the recording on the phone and that the bullet didn’t hit Kiara but a metal pole instead. He tells Abhi and Pragya that the kidnapper is just trying to scare them. Nikhil asks his man to take Kiara away and that he will kill her once he gets the money.
King visits Pragya and she tells him about Kiara’s kidnapping. He tells her that Abhi made the wrong move and they can’t get Kiara back this way. King says he will give Pragya all the money she needs, to give to the kidnapper. This conversation is overheard by Divya who tells Pragya that giving the kidnappers money isn’t the solution as they will hurt Kiara nonetheless. Pragya convinces Disha that this is the only solution left. King leaves saying that he will be back with the money. Pragya asks Disha to keep this a secret from everyone and the episode ends with Pragya feeling unwell and clenching her stomach in pain.
Is Pragya going to be okay? And will Abhi learn about the fact that Pragya has asked King for help?
