This disheartens Sita, who grabs her black Fiat, drives recklessly to kill herself, but ends up hitting Jyoti, who is about to get married and sister of Arjun; is followed by Lata in white Hindustan Ambassador, who also bypasses the dying Jyoti, but is unable to stop Sita from killing herself by leaping from a cliff.
