Yes your honor. We will keep your ordinance in mind.
Thank you Arifa for your enlightening words.
First off, if Arjun is known in Chandigarh and is known for his bad deeds, then the people who know him for his bad deeds will point out. I can rope in any number of witnesses who were Arjun's kidnap victims starting with Arohi!! Also, he is not known for good things. He is feared instead of respected.
Points to be Noted you honor:
- Defense agrees that RPS and Co are criminals and in their company Arjun was also involved in criminal activity.
- Defense also accepts that Arjun feels indebted to RPS with his life since he is an orphan who was adopted. Arjun will go to any extent to help and support RPS and will give his life to carry out the smallest of RPS's orders!!
- What KSA did 25 years ago is not under the microscope here. We are talking about the feud and the reason Arjun Singhania tried to kill KSA!!
As for bringing up past issues, those were detrimental to the case. We needed to review the events and the motives that led to this incident. Our intention was to show Arjun's motive, which we have successfully now done.
We agree Arohi is not 5 yrs old. But that does not mean she is not susceptible to any kind of misunderstandings. Wasn't she the one who misunderstood Arjun thanks to Gauri? Was she 5yrs old when that happened? NO! I am only trying to stress that misunderstandings have nothing to do with age. Anyone could be misunderstood because of people or circumstances. So the court is fully justified to disregard any evidence presented by Arohi as she was once married to Arjun and believes him to be right and her judgement and statement may be influenced and biased.
Even if we give her the benefit of doubt, other than her word, does she have any evidence to prove that Arjun was not the person who shot KSA? Arjun's fingerprints are on that gun. He was seen following KSA back to his room. The evidence is stronger than her statement.
Defense has openly accused Prosecution of biased and baseless speculation. We would like to prove them wrong and support our stand. We are also representatives of law and would like to uphold justice to the best of our knowledge. We want to see justice for the attempted murder of KSA and we will make sure we prove that Arjun Singhania is the culprit.
And No. We won't stop addressing him as Arjun Singhania because that is his legal surname. The court does not recognize him 'leaving his house and family'. He was legally adopted by RPS and he will remain Arjun Singhania until any information is presented in support of his real identity and his birth parents.
Kanoon andha zarur hai, par uski andhi nazron me sab ek samaan hai. Chahe woh KSA ho ya Arjun. Jo galat hai, usse sazaa zarur milegi!!
Next my colleague will take over the witness examination!!
