Two episodes will focus on shocking stories related to society.

The first will deal with the murder of a mother by her step children. Reason? Inbuilt hatred due to greed of wealth.

In the second story, viewers will be brought face-to-face with the brutal killing of a woman and her child by her husband. The crime is led by distrust and ego arising out of the fact that the wife was the sole bread-earner in the family.

The show, produced by Miditech, is hosted by TV actor Sharad Kelkar. It airs on Colors.
