Episode 2 Part 5

10:44 AM
Daya knew what he had to do… he had to somehow survive with the diary and RIcha till the others reached here. It wont take them more than 10 minutes… but he could hear the time passing slower than ever…

Daya – “Kaveri locker ke peeche jaldi. Wahan se cover karo.”

And then Daya took Richa’s hand, and pulled her with him as he moved… Daya was too careful… for he didn’t know where exactly were the bad men hiding… and they took the advantage… they suddenly appeared in front of him. All were masked like they were in the house. Their leader stepped forward –

Leader – “kyun apni jaan gavate ho? Hume tumse koi matlab nahi hai. Ladki aur diary hume de do. Wohh saare paise tumhare. Bologe toh doogne bhi mil jaayenge.”

Daya remained silent…

Leader – “officer, humare paas zyada time nahi hai. Ladki ko humne maarna hi hai, kyun chahte ho ki ye yahin mar jaaye.”

Daya was still silent… Richa was really scared. Her hand ached like hell but she didn’t care. Not now. She clung very tightly to Daya’s shirt.

Leader – “lagta hai isse ladki se koi pyaar nahi hai… theek hai, jaisi aapki marzi.”

And the leader points his gun towards Richa… Daya was ready, he was just about to shoot when another of the men fell down and died. Everyone turned to see the other CID ppl there. It was ACP who had fired… Daya however didn’t look back. He knew it had to be CID for silently he was counting time. It was 9 minutes 28 seconds since when he had called ACP. Daya thanked God for this and without wasting a second moment, he took hold of Richa’s hand and escaped. He knew he had to explain but not now…

Till the time the bad men knew what was happening, Daya and Richa were already rushing past them. The leader was intelligent. HE asked his men to fight the CID and he ran after Daya… he was fast and caught Richa. Richa used her big nails… she never imagined herself doing it nor did she think, that she would ever but as it says – desperate times, desperate measures…. Richa used her nails on his throat and he let her free… Daya looked at Richa and smiled. The leader bad man, was hurt but more shocked… he knew he missed his short and now ran out of the building…

Daya asked Richa to get into the car soon and then he took her to the most unpredictable clinic one can think of… it was a Government run clinic. Richa got her wound cleaned. It wasn’t easy… the people there wont help… and then Daya had to show his ID and also ask them all to keep their mouths shut as they were on trail…
Daya took the public phone and then called Abhi…

Abhi – “Daya kahan ho?”
Daya – “Abhijeet wohh sab chodo… aur meri baat suno… tumhara ghar abhi poori tarah se nahi bana na?”

And then Daya tells Abhi something… some plan or whatever… what we cant hear… but we see Daya speaking something in most urgency…

Daya – “Abhijeet theek hai na?”
Abhi – “hum pahunch rahe hain.”

Fifteen minutes later…. Daya parked the car in front of Richa’s old house.

Richa – “Daya kuch toh batao kya baat hai? Hum yahan kyun aaye hain?”
Daya – “Abhijeet aur Shruti, yahan hain.”
Richa – “Daya mujhe bahut darr lag raha hai. Wohh log mujhe kyun maarna chahte hain?”
Daya – “tumne zaroor kuch dekha hoga ya suna hoga… unhe darr hai ki kahin tum hume na bata do…”
Richa – “par mujhe sach mein kuch nahi pata…”
Daya – “ye unhe nahi pata”

And then Richa is really scared… Daya could see her trembling… and so he gave her a reassuring smile

Daya – “daro mat. Main hoon na. Tumhe kuch nahi hone dunga.”

Richa was on the verge of crying but ofcourse now she didn’t…
The two of them, went upstairs and to the house… Daya rang the bell… and Richa couldn’t recognize who opened the door. There was a lady in shiny royal blue suit. She had long thick hair tied into a neat plat and wore a little jewellery.

Lady – “ahho! Tussi aa gaye si? Assi tuada kinni der nu intezaar karya si…. Aap aao…”

Daya and Richa entered… Richa kept staring the lady. She knew that the lady had to be harmless… but she didn’t recognize her and that was bad… she kept staring her and the Punjabi lady smiled back…

Daya – “Abhijeet kahan hai?”
Lady – “unki abhi tak pagdi nahi bandhi…”

And only now Richa recognized – this was Shruti…

Richa – “aap?”
Shruti – “kyun bhai Daya, tumne kya kisi aur ko bulaya tha?”
Richa – “nahi, main toh aapko pehchaan hi nahi paayi…”

Daya wasn’t listening at all… he was worried and Shruti saw this…

Shruti – “ruko main bulati hoon …. Suno tussi aa rahe si ki main jaun?”

Abhi came out… if Shruti was unrecognizable… have a bet Abhi would see his ID again to confirm he was really Abhi…. Abhi wore his usual suit… but this was different… all brown and with beard and turban… this was the perfect Punjabi get up.

Abhi – “ye pagdi zaroor giregi.”

Shruti shook her head and went to help him…

Shruti – “ab sir itna mat hilao… warna giregi na…”

They both came to Richa and Daya…

Daya – “Shruti, Richa ko kapde de do…”

Richa looked at Daya for some kind of explaination but she got none… Anyways, so she followed Shruti inside while Abhi and Daya talked outside…

Abhi – “ab batao kya baat hui?”
Daya – “Abhijeet Lata gadbad hai…”

Daya shows Abhi the diary… a particular page…

Abhi reads it loud…

Abhi – “…mujhe darr lag raha hai. Aaj shyaam ke kehne par na jaane maine kya kar dala? Shyaam ne kaha ki wohh haar party host ke gift mein daal do… uske baad jisne wohh haar pehna tha, us aurat ka khoon ho gaya…”

Abhi looked at Daya but Daya was busy turning the page… Daya opened a page and then Abhi read again…

Abhi – “…ye theek nahi hua… Ragini ke mini recorder ne Mithun aur Rakka ki baat record kar lee hai. Agar Ragini ko sab pata chal gaya toh wohh chup nahi rahegi… Shyaam ne kaha ki chinta karne ki zaroorat nahi hai…”

Daya turned the page still further…

Abhi – “…main apne aap ko kabhi maaf nahi kar paungi… Shyaam ki baat sunkar mujhe drugs ki aadat lag gayi hai… main kya karun? Iss wajah se maine ghar bhi chod diya… papa ko shaq ho gaya tha… par ab main drugs ke bina nahi reh paati… aur aaj jab main shyaam ke ghar mein drugs le rahi thi… toh maine dekha ki shyaam kisi aur ladki ke saath bahar se aaya… wohh ladki bhi nashe mein thi… shyaam ne meri taraf dhyaan bhi nahi diya aur us ladki ke saath andar chala gaya… mujhe shyaam ki baat sunni hi nahi chahiye thi… mujhe iss aadat se chutkara paana hai…”

Daya again turned the page…

Abhi – “… koi sahi kehta hai… ek baar kisi buri sangati mein aa jao, toh nikalna mushkil hota hai… maine shyaam se door rehne ki kitni koshish ki par uske paas mere kuch gande photos hain… usne kaha ki agar maine uska kaam nahi kiya toh wohh ye photo mere ghar bhej dega… usne mujhe drugs bhi dee………. Jab main hotel pahunchi… toh Ragini ko sab pata tha… usne kaha ki wohh sabko bata degi… darr ke mare maine Ragini ko maar diya…”

Abhi closed the diary…

Abhi – ‘is Shyaam ko dhoondna padega…”
Daya – “ye jo koi bhi hai, bahut pahunchi hui cheez hai. Drugs aur ladkiyoin ka dhandha karta hai…”
Abhi – “aage kya karna hai?”

Daya opened the diary again and showed Abhi some dates at the back…

Daya – “ye wohh saari dates hain jin par Hotel mein khoon hua. Inmein ek date kal ki bhi hai. Yani ke kal kisi ka khoon hona hai. Us party mein Mr and Mrs Raichura ki jagah Main jaunga.”
Abhi – “akele? Kya baat kar rahe ho? Nahi… main aur Shruti jate hain…”
Daya – “boss par kaam khatarnaak hai.”
Abhi – “koi baat nahi… uske baad?”

Daya explains the plan to Abhi… The guy Shyaam thinks that Richa knows everything and so he is after her but in reality she doesn’t know a thing. Now they need to somehow hide Richa till Tomorrow night. They both agreed that Abhi and Shruti will live here as a Punjabi couple and they will take Richa in. No one will know this and Shyaam wont ever think that Richa went to her old apartment…

As they were talking this, the door bell rang. Abhi answered it…

Freddie – “sir ye toh Abhijeet sir ya Daya sir nahi hain…”

Abhi decided to take it back on Freddie… Freddie had made Abhi quite in trouble in the lab and this was the time to pay.

Abhi – “aaho ji, assi toh Shamsher Singh hainge…”
Freddie – “dekho hum CID se hain… yahan do CID officer hone chahiye… hume aane do.”
Abhi – “aiwei aane do… assi ketta na ki inha koi CID SheID officer nahi henge…”

Freddie was leading the pack… he thought this is gonna be difficult and so he just tilted his head a little and said “sir aap fikar mat karo isse main nipat ta hoon.” Thank God Freddie didn’t look back, for behind, everyone had guessed it was Abhi and were struggling to control their laughs…

Freddie – “dekho tum mujhe jaante nahi ho… mujhe gussa aa gaya toh –“
Abhi – “toh? Arre tuane Shamsher Singh ko dhamki de haigi? Ab toh khoon di nadiya bahengi… aji sunti ho, zara meri talwar toh laana…”

Freddie gets scared…

Abhi – “abhi toh tussi assi nu jaande nahi si… sade boss da naam sunkar tuana nu kuch aur sunne di icha ich nahi rendi…”

Before Freddie could speak… Shruti came there… still in her get up but as she didn’t know what was going on, she spoke normally…

Shruti – “kya hua? Itni loud over acting kyun kar rahe ho?”

Everyone burst out laughing… including ACP. Freddie was feeling really sad…

Vivek – “arre ye toh Abhijeet sir hi hain…”
Freddie – “haan bas bas Vivek mujhe pata tha… main toh bas inhe mauka de raha tha…”
ACP – “Freddie…”

And then everyone went in…

Now the plan was,
Lavanya would walk out with Daya. Lavanya’s physique resembled that of Richa and so Lavanya would dress as Richa and leave with Daya. Richa would stay behind with Abhi and Shruti. Shruti was asked to get friendly with the neighbours and find out about Lata. Meanwhile, Vivek, Freddie and Kaveri would get employed at the Hotel and find whats happening inside. The rest was set up for the next day – Shruti and Abhi will attend the party as the hosts and Shruti will wear the necklace…
