The Crossroad 15 May 2020: Swadheenta questioning inspector Balwinder. She asks was he there at blast site that night. He says yes. She says there was cross firing between you and terrorist, you lost the terrorist for some time after terrorist threw the smoke can.
He says right. She says point to be noted, police lost him, how did you relocate him when there was lot of crowd. He says its written in reports, we heard gunshots and entered that building. She says terrorists run into an abandoned plot, no one went there. Suhasini asks what do you want to say. Swadheenta says if terrorists goes there to hide, why will he shoot bullets and get police attention, tell me, don’t you have answer, man shoots when someone is following or if danger is infront of him, there were two people in that building, the terrorist
and the follower. Adarsh looks on.
Judge asks Suhasini does she have to say anything. Suhasini says I wish this story was true, police got just Asad there. Swadheenta says patience Mam, I will come at that point. Swadheenta asks inspector did you see Asad on blast site. He says we have seen him on terrace. She asks how did you believe he is terrorist, without arresting or questioning him, you have shot him, on what basis. He says his photo was circulated, he was wearing jacket. She says don’t know, I have seen his body, he did not wear any jacket. He says I mean he held the jacket in hand. She says Asad held jacket in hand, can you show how was he holding it, don’t worry, show me. He holds the jacket and shows. Suhasini asks what does this matter.
Swadheenta says it matters, I will prove it. She wears the jacket and asks judge can I call inspector. Judge permits her. Swadheenta asks inspector to hold her and gets away quickly. Inspector holds the jacket, as Asad caught Arvind and shot his jacket. She aims the gun, and asks inspector to freeze. Everyone look on shocked. Judge asks whats happening. She says look at him, how he is holding the jacket, note this, Asad held jacket like this. She apologizes to do this acting. Judge asks what do you want to prove.
She says this way the man can hold jacket, who was following the terrorist, Arvind has shot Abhay, threw smoke can and went to that building, Asad followed Arvind, tried to stop him and held his jacket, Arvind has run away after shooting at him, that’s why police heard the gun shots, now inspector can understand whom they shot. Swadheenta tells there were two guys at building, there were four guys at blast site, no one has seen that fourth guy, because that fourth guy wearing jacket was shooting at Abhay, he was Arvind. Suhasini says I appeal to court not to delay, court gave her 3 days for not delaying more, we want to know what happened new.
Swadheenta says new thing is its three to four guys now, now I will bring this fourth guy’s truth, that fourth guy was terrorist, Abhay’s murderer and he is Arvind, if police went there 2 mins ago, they would have got Arvind, its fate that police caught Asad and shot him, he was not just my brother, he was country’s son, if Asad is regarded culprit, then this will be slap on every guy’s face who regards country as their home, his soul is appealing for justice and his father’s name to get cleared, his father is not a terrorist, I will clear the stain on his name. Mamu and Mami cry. Adarsh, Yash and everyone look on.
Swadheenta meets Yash after the hearing and says I will find Arvind anyhow, I doubt about your statement, are you thinking its strange, that I m informing you, I m Asad’s sister, we are mad, we don’t backstab, I say on face, I will expose your truth in court and infront of the world, remember this. She goes. Manohar and Suhasini come there.
Suhasini says I trusted you as you were with Abhay, I hope facts are right, I m doubting on reports now. Yash says all facts are true, Swadheenta is making a story, truth won’t hide. Manohar says we have to make Swadheenta’s mouth shut soon. Yash asks him not to worry. Suhasini says this is not just a case, but a justice fight for Abhay and innocent people who died that night, whoever wins the case, truth should come out. Minister calls Manohar. Manohar says I will come there. He tells Suhasini that minister called, I will meet you in evening, I think its something imp, come Jaidev.
Minister shows committee report to Manohar. Manohar asks to whom is this related. Minister says you and me, since your bahu took this case in hand and said Asad is not a terrorist, pressure formed on us, we had to take an action, so we have made a committee find out, Ravi and Rajesh got killed in bomb blast, they had no records, they are regarded terrorists, but Asad and Haider’s proofs to be true and good Indians are plenty which we can’t deny, its written that maybe system did a mistake, force has shot a wrong guy assuming him to be terrorist. Manohar and Jaidev get shocked. Minister says if world knows this truth, that system did big mistake, your suspension is definite, you can fall in trouble, its 125 crores on stake, we can say truth or hide the system’s mistake. Manohar asks Jaidev to go home, I will come later.
Later at night, Jaya asks Jaidev how was your day. He says it was hectic, there were two meetings, with team members and minister. She asks what meeting. He says regular. Manohar calls Jaidev and says I have taken a decision, minister is saying right, we have to cover this up. Jaidev says fine. Manohar says you know what you have to do. Jaidev say yes, I will manage. He ends call. Jaya shows a black thread and says I got this for you from temple, this thread will keep you calm, will not let you deviate from right path and give you strength to walk on right path. She ties the thread to his hand. Jaidev feels guilty. She asks him not to remove this, my angry young man.
Suhasini tells Simmi that hearing went well, decision will be taken in few days. She says but I have seen on tv. Suhasini says I told you not to watch that. Simmi says sorry, I saw Swadheenta taking Arvind’s name. Suhasini says even if Arvind is found, it won’t take long. Manohar comes there. Simmi leaves. Suhasini asks him about meeting. He says it was good. She asks any special reason. He says no, just like that. She says I m tired, I will get tea. He thinks I have to hide this truth from Suhasini, minister is right to do anything to cover up system’s fault. Manohar and Jaidev meeting Yash. Manohar says you here….Yash says I need to talk to you. Manohar asks him to come. Yash says I got to know about recent internal enquiry, I know well Gilanis are not clean, whatever the reports say, we know Haider is a terrorist, he did those blasts, I know you are in Abhay’s death sorrow, if Haider is not punished, this won’t be good for our society, he should be hanged, you have to trust me. Manohar says reports…. Yash says you have the solution, someone who could turn the case anytime. Manohar asks who. Yash says Allan Broad….. Manohar gets shocked.
Paddy tells about Allan Broad’s statement, that Haider and Asad were connected to him, they were linked to terrorist group since many years. Paddy shows Allan Broad’s statement…..
Swadheenta and Mami see this news on tv. Arvind too sees the news and says Bilal, I told you someone else will do our work. Mami says this is a lie and cries. Swadheenta consoles her. Arvind says now Allan will say Asad was a terrorist and everyone has to believe it then…..
Its morning, Suhasini asks Manohar did he read Allan Broad’s statement. He asks what did he say. She says he said Asad and Haider were linked to terrorists, he meets you often, did he not tell you. He says maybe he did not know Swadheenta is linked to Haider. She says but he is giving statement after 25 days. He says maybe police took his statement now. She says whatever, this will help us in our case, now no one can save Haider.
Swadheenta comes home and sees the same news. Adarsh switches off the tv and asks from where are you coming. She says I met Mami. He asks did you see news, now are you sure we were not saying wrong, Broad’s statement is big proof that Haider is mastermind of the blasts. She says Broad is saying a lie. He says you are believing them still, don’t turn face, truth won’t chance. She says Broad is lying…. Suhasini hears them and says now Broad is lying too…. Come and sit, passion and madness look same to hear, but meaning is different, you think this truth fight is passion, this is madness and foolishness, this is just truth, its bitter for you, if we all are trying to explain you, the reason is we all love you a lot, you are part of this family, we don’t have enmity with you and your family, you are seeing all evidence is against them, the world believes they are culprit, your heart also has that belief in a corner of your heart, you are not willing to hear your heart, try to see truth and understand it. Adarsh says mom is saying right, please understand this and agree to it.
Mami offers prayers. Swadheenta goes to meet Mami. Mami asks how did you come back so soon. Swadheenta asks her about Broad’s statement, that he met Mamu and Asad a lot of times. Mami says world made you helpless to say lie, I went to police station to meet your Mamu, he told me to ask you to leave this case, I told him that Swadheenta is not just fighting for us, its fight of her belief, I see your belief shaking today, so I want to tell you, leave this case. Swadheenta says its nothing like that. Mami says we don’t have anything to lose now, we lost a son, we lost our name and respect we earned all our lives, now there is just life, Haider and I are not interested to live, if you have to clear stain off Asad and Mamu’s names, you have to fight, only if your belief is solid, else no, come to that house and see, maybe you can get something that you doubt.
Media is also outside Haider’s house. Police stops her. Mami and Swadheenta come there. Swadheenta says this is my house, let me go there. Adarsh says its okay, let her come. He asks her to come, Yash called me here, as the house is getting checked. Yash gets some maps from that house, also foreign currency. They get a CD too. Adarsh asks Swadheenta to see truth with her own eyes. She says no one can see the truth which I see, Asad and Haider are not terrorists, thanks for getting me here, you made me sure that I m walking on right path. Paddy tells Mami that army is saying they got CD, lakhs of rs and documents, what do you have to say about this. Paddy asks Swadheenta to say something. Swadheenta says we don’t have to say anything, truth will come out. She takes Mami and leaves.
Swadheenta recalls putting Asad’s pocket money in the vase. She thinks I know all those places and used it too. FB shows Mamu asks whats this place. She says its treasure hidden and gives him aam papad asking him not to tell anyone. Mamu hides some money behind the pic. She asks what are you hiding. He says anniversary is coming, I have to buy gift for your Mami, I m saving money. She says this raid is done, and someone is framing Haider Mamu, that person can’t be hidden from me now.
At night, she sits working on the case, while Adarsh is sleeping. Adarsh wakes up and sees her awake. He turns and sleeps.
Its morning, Jaya tells Suhasini that she fed Simmi. She serves food to everyone. Swadheenta also gets the food. Manohar, Jaidev and Adarsh sign her not to serve. Suhasini asks Swadheenta not to make breakfast daily, no one eats food, it does not look good. Swadheenta says its fine, I m just doing a bahu’s duty, will you have anything. Suhasini says no, come and have breakfast. Swadheenta sits to dine.
Suhasini asks what did you think, all evidence is recovered from your Mamu’s house. Swadheenta says after talking to you, I thought its wrong, but this sudden raid and Broad’s statement is not a coincidence, I m sure there is some power who does not want Asad and Haider’s truth to come out. Adarsh holds his head. Swadheenta says I will bring this truth out at any cost.
