A long time ago, Gangadhar Kundu had a small spice shop in Masala Posta. Due to his business was in decline lately as his health also not going well. As the money lenders and shop rent were due, he decided to go Metiabruz to little help of money through interest. A stranger called him as he was returning with money from Metiabruz. That stranger was an Afghan Muslim offered Gangadhar to buy cocaine at a lower price. Although at first, Gangadhar was a little surprised, later he showed interest to buy for the easy money. For this reason, Gangadhar followed that stranger and went to a secluded place. Going there, the stranger told to Gangadhar to sit on a tree stump and went somewhere.

After a while, that Muslim afghan stranger came and opened the door of the house and said softly to come inside. Gangadhar was a little scared because he came to this secluded place with a stranger with so much money. After thinking for a while, he entered the room. It was dark and damp inside the house and it seemed that no one had come here for a long time. Gangadhar looked and saw that the Afghan Muslim man was gone. Of course, he reappeared within a short time. And shouted over Gangadhar and said are you unable to hear me? I am calling you but no answer from your side.

And his body is being transformed into tiny particles and mixed into the thin air. Entire process completed within a short time. And darkness swallows his eyes after an unusual incident took place. And Gangadhar fainted and fell to the ground. Latter the boatmen rescued him. The money was just fine. But it takes a long time to recover from that incident. Later Gangadhar came to know that the person's name was Amir Kha. He was a big businessman of stolen cocaine. He vanished mysteriously 15 years ago.
