Apradhi Kaun (1957)
(Certified: Dec 11, 1957)
Jitpurs landlord Jogeshwarbabu had at one time disinherited his son Dinanath owing to his strong views against the system of Zaminidari and the younger son Srinath was made the sole heir to his vast property. Before his death, however Jogeshwarbabu had realised that Srinath was an unscrupulous man of a questionable character. He therefore made a second will disinheriting entirely his younger son Srinath and making Dinanath his heir. The first will was in possesion of Srinath while the second and the really valid will was in the custody of a trusted friend Raibahadur Jankinath. . Srinath who had thus illegally exporpriated the vast property was a chronic patient and therefore a doctor and a nurse Shobha were permanently quartered in his house. . The wholly unexpected return of the now paralytic and poverty-stricken Dinanath unnerved Srinath who, in his futile attempt to get possesion of the valid will with the help of a charming cabaret dancer Lily, unwittingly killed the Raibahadur. . Srinath, now a fugitive from law, suffered from an obsession that his life was in constant danger. He therefore sumoned from the city the famous private detective Rajesh for proetction. Hardly had Rajesh taken quarters with Srinath when the police party raided the house at mid-night to arrest Srinath for the murder of Raibahadur. When the doors of Srinaths room were pushed open, lo and behold, Srinath the murderer himself was found murdered with a dagger plunged in his back.
