The troopers go to the Chor Bazar, the place they discover a beggar-cum-thief, Yusuf Ustad, and convey him earlier than the noble man. The noble man asks Yusuf to abduct and kill the kid, who would be the future king. Greedy Yusuf accepts the provide, however is unable to kill the cherubic youngster, and finally ends up abducting him, leaving proof in blood to point out that the kid has been killed.
