Malini continues writing that her 7 years spent with Adi were the most valuable moment and she doesn’t have any problem with him; she cannot share him with anyone and what was her mistake that he left her hand and held someone else’s, its not even his mistake as love cannot be wrong and she cannot stop loving him, etc.

Imlie walks in and seeing Malini sitting on chair says she told her that she needs her elder sister, Malini didn’t come, so she came; if she is so angry on her that she cannot turn towards her, she should look at the award at least as she could study because of her.
She continues requesting her and stands shocked seeing blood on floor, rushes to Malini and sees her already attempted suicide by cutting her wrist. She shouts for help. Dev and Daadi rush Malini to hospital. Tripathi family also reaches there. Adi requests doctor to start Malini’s treatment. Doctor says he has to follow protocol.

Adi tries to walk behind Malini. Daadi stops him and says Malini needed his support, but he never understood her, now he should leave his granddaughter alone. Aparna asks what is she saying. Daadi continues pouring her heart out that Adi did very wrong to Imlie. Adi says he was meeting Malini tomorrow, but she didn’t wait. Daadi continues pouring her heart out and says he left Malini alone, so she felt better to die as a suhagan; now she realized that Anu was right that Adi is unfit for Adi. Dev consoles her and makes her sit. Imlie thinks living without being a suhagan was in her fate, then why did god gave that fate to Malini, now her hands are smeared with Malini’s blood.
