Ganesh adviced by his new house owner(Mayilswamy) starts working under Laxmidas(Soori) who owns a Taxi company.
Cops in Kolkata ask Taxi and Auto drivers for help in nabbing criminal members of Rahul’s gang and prepare a suspect list. Ganesh identifies one of the suspects and informs the police about the where abouts of the criminals which leads to a large haul of illegal weapons, drugs, money and also arrest of many of lower level gang members belonging to Rahul. Frustrated Aniket finds Ganesh and brings him to his Yacht to be killed, but is instead killed by Ganesh who becomes extremely violent during the altercation.
