The terrorists intensify their agitation to put pressure on the Indian Government to free Kashmir. A failed attempt is made on the Home Minister. Then the police raid the Home Minister’s bodyguard, Noor Mohamed Azaad’s house killing his family, arresting him, and beating him up. A devastated Noor decides to take up arms against the Indian forces and joins the terrorists, headed by Masood Qadri. Alarmed, the Home Minister meets with the Indian Army Major, and together they decide to reinstate dishonorably discharged Arjun Singh Toofan back into the army and assign him with the task of apprehending the terrorists. Arjun apprehends Masood, but his gang abducts a bus-load of passengers and holds them hostage until Masood’s release.
Masood is released and Arjun is suspended. Enraged with the Indian army’s tactics, Arjun decides to join the terrorists. Masood welcomes him with open arms, but first asks Arjun to prove his worth – Arjun must kill an important person in the Indian Government to qualify.
