The arrow by chance pierced a son of a widow. Hearing the news, the widow was very much shocked and disappointed. Because the victim was her only child. 

So she went to the Kazi to pray for justice. She complained against the Sultan. The Kazi was moved to pity hearing the shocking news. But he could not decide what to do. Because the complaint was against the Sultan. If he did justice to the widow, the Sultan might be displeased.
