Diya Aur Baati Hum's September 26th episode: Sooraj and Bharat are informed about Sandhya’s ordeal after they meet Sajni. Sajni tells Sooraj that she can help him if he comes into the village. Sooraj tells Bharat that he will go for Sandhya’s rescue. Bharat denies the permission outright saying that Sandhya is a trained IPS officer while Sooraj is a common man. He cannot allow Sooraj to step into the danger zone!
Sooraj argues that his love for Sandhya will give him the strength to overcome his drawbacks. Bharat feels helpless before Sooraj’s determination; he says that for the first time he is taking a decision with the command of his heart, not of his brain! He allows Sooraj to enter the Garjana village in the guise of a cook.
Sandhya is again captivated by the Garjana. Sajni stealthily follows Bade Raja to know the whereabouts of Sandhya. She sees Bade Raja meeting Shekhar and becomes shocked to know that the jovial theater boy is a malevolent terrorist in reality!
Shekhar tells Bade Raja that he has broken Sandhya’s legs so that she cannot escape anymore! The gruesome truth shocks and pains Sajni, who is grateful to Sandhya. She thinks this is her scope to repay Sandhya’s friendship. She will liberate Sandhya at any cost, decides Sajni.
Sooraj and Bharat reach the village of Ratanpur and wait for the Garjana men. Sajni has informed them that the Garjana is going to make a fest very soon. Sooraj plans to go there as a cook. When the Garjana team come to pick up the men for their fest, Sooraj joins the gang.
