One day, the criminal and his gang attacked a group of people, killing four of them and wounding many. The police and a huge crowd chased the criminals. They ran in different directions. The brother of the kind man ran to his house and fell at the feet of his loving brother and prayed to save his life. The police men were fast following him. The loving brother gave his clothes to his cruel brother and put on the blood-stained clothes of his brother. The police arrested the innocent brother and he was produced before the court of law. He did not try to prove his innocence. He was moved to the jail and later sentenced to death. The death of his innocent brother for saving his life touched the hard-hearted brother. He was transformed.
