Their approach is simple: A woman (played by Pooja Gandhi) from the gang finds a right house for the robbery where lone or elderly reside and visits the house asking for water.
When the resident goes in to bring the same, the gang members enter the house. They attack, gang rape and murder them and rob money and valuables. The shocking part of the story is that they could kill anyone for a few thousands or a small piece of gold ornament and they can eat anything including flesh of donkeys.
They were also exploited by Doddanna, a lawyer, who uses them for numerous of crimes by paying peanuts. The hunt for their heads begins after the ratio of the murders and robberies shockingly increases and Ravi Shankar (Arundhati Dubbing artist) is being assigned the job of finding them.
