Prachi nods no saying they don’t have any such things in their home. Aliya proves her point further saying thieves always confirm there is money or jewelries in homes they go to steal. Why would thieves go to her house when there is nothing? She further tells Prachi that they treated her as a family member and she did this? Shame on her. Press was standing behind and they heard / recorded everything.

Aliya apologizes to them for not noticing them and says there’s a problem, Prachi stole company’s money. Ranbir asks Aliya not to involve press in this. Pallavi takes Aliya’s side. She says she likes Prachi as well, but Aliya’s point is right. Prachi says she is not like that, she can’t even think like this. Aliya says it’s not her fault, they learn everything from their parents only. She is sure she learned to act like this from her mother. Prachi says please, her mother can’t even think like this. She didn’t give her such values. She cries and runs away. Abhi goes behind her. Ranbir is also disappointed and tries to go behind Abhi, but Pallavi stops him and says try to understand, Prachi is a middle class girl. Their needs are more and resources are less which sometimes make them do what they don’t want to. They just can’t help it. Aliya tells Ranbir that he finds Prachi innocent because she is his friend. But she can’t ignore this, otherwise Prachi will steal again. And that’s why she will file an FIR against Prachi as well. Riya is happy.

Precap: Ranbir is frustrated at Aryan saying he knows how Prachi is and that is why he is defending her. Aryan asks whom all he will shut. If he wants to defend her, then prove her innocent.
