After release from prison he kills Rajan and frames his former lawyer Amit (Amitabh Bachchan) for Rajan's murder.

Unfortunately, she becomes separated from one of her sons Guru, when her son is stolen by a childless couple. With her husband on the run and one son missing, Janki is forced to raise Shankar on her own.

Miscellaneous
Actually, Rana Sahab had picked up Shankar's identification card from the floor at the airport, read it. He realized he was an inspector, and presumed he was investigating him, therefore he dreaded meeting him.

Continuity
Rana saab has a daydream about meeting his long-lost wife and subsequent confrontation with Inpsector Shankar. However, at that point in the film, Rana saab had never met Inspector Shankar before so he couldn't have known that he was a police officer and that he was investigating him. Rana saab actually first meets Inspector Shankar immediately after the daydream scene.
