Rahim finds the false finger while playing in the garden. He takes it to Salima. Zakira sees it and explains that it is a false finger which helps giving poison to a person, without causing any damage to the killer’s finger. Salima remembers that she saw Zeenat searching for something in the garden. The doctor examines it and confirms the same. She adds that she doubted Zeenat for giving a wrong medicine to Rukaiya to cause her illness, so that she becomes distant from Hussain.
