The cast also includes Asif Raza Mir, Hiba Bukhari and Usman Javed in important roles.
Peeral Expresses His Anger
Peeral (Asif Raza Mir) is aware that ASP Arsalan (Farhan Saeed) has some serious evidence against Meeral (Usman Javed) in Jeevan’s death case. He senses that ASP may create trouble for them therefore he raises his tone and temper to settle the matter. SSP (Hassan Niazi) tells ASP to stay calm down. He further assures Peeral that this case will be handled on merit. Peeral gives a silent warning to the ASP that the district of Jhok Sial has seen many hot-blooded officers but all their efforts have gone in vain.
ASP Arsalan Helps Sassi To Be Financially Independent
ASP had reopened the application for Sassi’s (Hiba Bukhari) job as a school teacher. The application was filed by her father headmaster Kamaluddin who was the headmaster in the same school. ASP is happy as it was important for the family to be financially independent after Jeevan’s death. He sends his colleague Aslam (Mazhar Suleman) to hand over the job letter to headmaster Kamaluddin. Sassi isn’t happy about this development as she is still under the impression that ASP has killed her brother. Noorie (Maham Shahid) arrives at her place and tells her that Meeral is the real culprit and not the ASP.
ASP Arsalan Shuts Down Fake Protests
Peeral’s workers go all out to prove that ASP Arsalan has killed Jeevan. They along with villagers protest outside the police station. To keep the law and order in place ASP Arsalan tells the protestors to let them do their work and serve justice.

She tells them that the police isn’t responsible for Jeevan’s assassination.
We have seen Farha Saeed in mostly light-hearted avatars like Arsal from Suno Chanda and Hamza from Mere Humsafar. In Jhok Sial he takes a giant leap and proves his versatility. Farhan as ASP Arsalan is a ‘performance chamaleon’. He pulls all stops for this one, he is fierce for the cruel and angel for the innocent. The character does complete justice to Farhan’s personality, acting chops and star power. And the actor equally delivers a brilliant performance, grabbing our attention the moment he enters the frame. He is the showstopper of Jhok Sial and packs a solid punch in a role tailor-made for him. The promos of the upcoming episode hint at the beginning of a romantic track between ASP Arsalan and Sassi.
