A burglar who had broken into Hamnaz’s home is the first to reveal her secret affair.
Hamnaz, whose nose was bitten off by her dying lover, leans over her sleeping husband. She intends to frame him for causing the injury so that her affair will not be revealed. When Hamnaz’s nose is found in the mouth of the dead lover, her husband is absolved.
