Shankar (Dharmendra) is an executioner at a local police station. He lost respect for his job, as he was forced to execute an innocent man, who was framed by the Underworld for committing the murder of a Police Commissioner. He quit his job and was unable to find jobs at other places, as the employers were concerned about their own safety. In a desperate need for money, he approached Shinde (Shakti Kapoor) for a job. Shinde, with the help of Senior Inspector Dolkar was involved in the trade of arms. Shinde framed Shankar for his deeds and was arrested by Inspector Arjun (Kiran Kumar). The court sentenced him to prison. Since then, vengeance against the criminals was Shankar's prime objective.
