He soon befriends two other children Manish and Jyoti and informs his parents accordingly. Since there is no neighbor anywhere within sight, they think that he has an active imagination like his dad. They decide to hire a maid, Rukma, to look after him. Subsequently, Rohan complains that Rukma had tried to kill him by trying to push him under a truck, but Rukma denies this. Rohan also accuses Rukma of stealing property from their house, which Rukma vehemently denies. The next day the Police Inspector Bhupal Gorpade, informs the Raos that Rukma has been killed by a hit and run driver. The shocked Raos are also told that property belonging to them has been recovered from Rukma, and according to his investigation, a truck driver did confirm that Rukma had attempted to kill Rohan. The question remains, if Rohan is not making up tall tales, who are Manish and Jyoti, and why can't anyone else see them?
