Episode 4: Mar 3, 2006
Ever imagine a kidnapper asking for a ransom even before the kidnapping has happened? And even notifying the time and date in advance in case the person fails too...
D.O.N faces a tough challenge this time with all the possible twists and turns! At the centre is an innocent 4 year old kid, Gulla. His grandfather and parents receive a threatening call and a shocking message that makes all intentions clear!
It all begins with Lala Radheyshyam Halwai(from Bikaner) who made it big in Mumbai as a world-famous manufacturer of sweets. He lives in a large mansion and is super-rich. Now he wants to go back to Bikaner with his whole family. The apple of his eyes - his grandson Gulla. However, his son and daughter-in-law do not agree with him, as they have been born and brought up in Mumbai.
Soon, the family gets a strange note, with the kid's hair cut and attached to it and asking for a hefty ransom or the kidnap of Lala's grandson! D.O.N. is consulted, even police deployed, but the kidnapper succeeds in taking Gulla smoothly from within the house when everybody is distracted as Lala faints and the capture of a local ruffian Babban with chloroform (which is a set-up). Thomas(Driver) and Reshma(Nanny) are prime suspects as they have also disappeared!
D.O.N's investigation now reveals a secret room within the mansion, one that only three people are aware!

The story about Sanjay and Megha Dixit, a young couple who have run away from their homes and assumed another identity in Mumbai. Like many others, they had come here with hopes and dreams of starting life afresh.
They are able to rent a sea-facing flat from a smooth estate agent on Cuffe Parade at a ridiculously low price. But dreams go awry as the wife mysteriously disappears on a tonga ride. New to the city and with nobody to turn to, Sanjay approaches D.O.N.
Things get complicated further when the couple's flat is ransacked and the underworld steps in demanding a whooping 2 crore as ransom for releasing the wife. D.O.N has barely 12 hours to solve the case. The needle of suspicion points to different suspects, vital clues are provided by the taxi driver and an observant tramp. It is also revealed that Sanjay was lying about his name and that his real identity was Sanjay Srivastava, from Gwalior.
D.O.N askes Babban(the underworld killer) for some more time and tells him that the underworld is mistaken and that they have the wrong person. The real Dikshits are still at large. They were the estate agent and his wife impersonating as the secretary. He had already discovered their hideout earlier. They had opened the fake estate agency and when a client with the convenient name of Dikshit came up to them, the flat was provided at throwaway prices to mislead the underworld and give themselves enough time!
