Niothing, of course, could be further from our heroes, who soon follow up
the second lead they have on Najim's disappearence: a medallion of god Kaali.
So they soon hide in Kaali's temple (a sacrilegious act for non-believers)
& witness a priest being entombed alive - a sacred ritual among the
worshippers of Kaali - but they also see their sinister friend inspector
Singh appear on the scene. Soon though they are found out, & the
Kaali-worshippers want to sacrifice them on the spot, but Singh orders them to
let our heroes go, but warns them to never come back.
Soon though Ramar & Ogden are bushwhacked & kidnapped ... curiously
enough by their friend doctor Najim, who tell them that he wanted them to
investigate the disappearence of his friend, the erstwhile highpriest of Kaali,
whose place was taken by what he thinks to be an impostor. Of course, Ramar
& Ogden agree to help & soon enter the temple of Kaali again
(when it's not busy though), & even open the tomb where the highpriest was
supposed to be walled up ... only to find the tomb has a secret exit that leads
to a statue of Kaali, which is literally covered in diamonds ... only most of
them are fakes, & it seems the phony highpriest has a jolly good time
selling of the genuine ones.
However, when Ramar & Ogden leave the temple again, they are soon
captured by the Kaali-worshippers, & of course inspector Singh shows up too
... to arrest the Kaali worshippers (& especially the phony highpriest).
Turns out he has been on the side of the law all along & was looking for a
way to solve the mystery of the disappearing diamonds of the Kaali-satue ...
& he has mistaken Ramar & Ogden for accomplices of the robbers - until
now of course.
Alright Indian adventure of Ramar, which is basically a typical mystery
about smugglers who use mysticism to scare off nosey investigators (a storyline
that was later exercised to death in the many Scooby Doo-series),
but this time set in the Indian jungle.
