This is a spinoff of the Phantom, shown on Doordarshan in 1997. The hero, Betaal, has a horse and a dog, just like the Phantom does. He fights the forces of evil. He lives in a forest and is at times assisted by the tribals. But there the similarities end. The rest of the story is totally different. There are several "incidences" shown over multiple episodes each. It is a fairly decent entertainer and was a boon to children when only DD was easily available for viewing.
