The strange case of dead body in a box- Part 1
This week's story starts with Inspector Akshay finding the bankrupted friend (the guy was shown in last few shows)whom he had given his car (in the last show) to go to Pune, in a beaten state in his room. That friend tells Akshay that while coming back from Pune after getting 25 Lacs from his business partner, he was robbed off and beaten and that's why his condition is like this. Akshay asks if he has filed any complaint. His friend says no. Akshay insists that he does and his friend keeps refusing. Just then Akshay gets call from CID bureau and he leaves. His friend looks confused and worried and searches his bag.
Next we are shown a dark room and a girl is anchoring some horror show with lots of skeletons and other scary stuff. Three guys are shooting the program. One guy says that it gives him creeps to look at the skeletons. Other guy tells him that those stuff are made of plastic and are not real. Just then the girl gets a call on her mobile and she cries after attending the call. She informs the team that her dad died.
We are shown this girl crying on her mother's shoulders. Next to them another man and a lady are sitting and their lawyer tells them that her father has bought a gift for her. There is a huge gift on the lawn and on opening the gift they find an antique wooden box. The girl is very happy to find the gift. Mother asks her to open the box and on opening they find a dead body inside it. They think it is plastic as her father always gifts her wierd stuff because of her liking for such stuff.
She hangs that decayed looking dead body in her room and goes to sleep. At night she finds lots of ants in her room and sees that they are eating the dead body ( Yuck!!!).
CID team Ajatshatru, Jasmine and Pratap are in her home examining the dead body. They enquire how she got this thing and she tells them everything. She also tells that she keeps only plastic stuff in her home and not real ones. She asks them to talk to the lawyer about it.
Lawyer tells CID team that the box was purchased from an antique dealership for Rs 50,000 and shows them the receipt and dealer's name.
CID team enquires about the box and dead body at the dealer's shop. Dealer is worried and tells them that Pratap singh (girl's dad)placed order on 18th and box was delivered on 20th.He doesn't have any clue about dead body.
At the bureau, the Doctor is in a funny mood talking about box and Ajatshatru gets pissed at Doctor for not telling them anything about dead body. Then Doctor tells them that the dead body is of a man around 25-30 and doesn't have any mud deposits so was kept in a clean place before placing in the box and also it doesn't have any wounds nor was it poisoned. Then he shows them the x-ray of body where in there is a metal in one of the legs. But bones of the body was not broken. The metal was simply screwed to the bone. When Doctor removes metals screws, they find lots of Diamonds inside it. It seems that guy (who is deadbbody now) purposely put those diamonds inside his body.
CID team is back at antique dealer. They tell him that it is now a case of smuggling. Dealer tells that he has no clue of what happened but his shop locks were broken by somebody on 19th but nothing was robbed. He had registered a complaint too. So CID teams thinks that 18th the box order was placed. 19th somebody must have put the dead body in it. But his bad luck that 20th the box was delivered to someone. They also find out that same day on 19th, there was another burglary at a lady's house but nothing was taken. They find it strange.
They reach lady's (her name is Sheela)home. She looks scared and tells them that since nothing was stolen she withdrew case and they should stop harassing her. CID team leaves. After sometime Sheela leaves home and drives to some place. CID team were hiding near her home and they follow her. She reaches a cliff and is planning to jump off from there. CID team (Ajatshatru, Jasmine,Akshay, Pratap) runs to rescue her. Pratap asks her to hold his hand. But as she holds his hand, she slips. Ajatshatru is shocked.
Update for concluding part tomorrow.
