Part 6 -
Monday after one week Badra Court session.
Everyone from Chopra family was there. Siddhi was there with her sons and Diwans too tagged along. Police brought Richa to court. Thakral practically ran to her as she was not able to get bail at all. She spent entire week in jail as complaint against her was such and given previous charges of attempted murder, she failed to receive bail. First time Thakral was feeling extremely weak.
Judge walked-in, everyone rose. But still prosecution attorney was not present there. Thakral was happy but also confused like everyone. During bail hearing, public prosecutor argued against Richa, but today he is not present. People in court room were chatting, creating noise due to obvious uncertainty as what is happening.
Thakral stood up like a fox he is, "Well your honor, I say this case is simply ridiculous. The charges are 9 years old, Siddhi Chopra was already proved guilty and she even served her term. Now other two charges, what can I say, again ridiculous. I imagine prosecution too has realized this, that is why no one bothered to show up. huh."
Judge, "Mr. Thakral we must wait before you can start your arguments. Who is the opposing counsel, can we have the prosecution side please."
"I am" strong, deep voice came form back. Everyone was inclined to look back as who is this. No other than THE KUNAL CHOPRA stood there, firmly holding his ground, looking like an angry tiger took his steps in. Sudden shock gloomed over the court-room. Nobody, not even Siddhi imagined this would happen. Kunal once again had surprised if not shocked everyone. Talk about being a wild card, unpredictable being, Kunal proved he is one.
He came forward near chair, threw his file with attitude on the table, again dazzling people.
Thakral, "Kunal, you are. How can you.."
Kunal stopped him right there, "Shut up. Again not interested in hearing your nonsense. I am your opposing counsel, if you are sacred, well too bad. Only talk about the case, otherwise shut up." Kunal finished his sentence, used right right arm to move the chair, set on it like a man who doesn't give a damn and put his left leg on right with left arm on chair showing indicating he is in no mood of nonsense. Again, everyone simply dazzled by seeing this Kunal.
Thakral dumbstruck and Richa just dumb trying hard but failing to understand what is happening here. Kuanl snapped his fingers to bring Thakral back. Even judge was amazed by to see this Kunal Chopra, man who did not even pass by court is here.
Thakral swallowed his gut, in low tone started again, "as I was saying your honor. This case is simply baseless. I imagine there is no real proof. This is simply an act to insult my client, not to mention me. Opposing attorney always had grudge against me so.."
Kunal suddenly stood up from the chair, like how a tiger may have just jumped to attack; scaring everyone, even the judge. Thakral took a step back as he saw sheer fury coming his way.
As soon as Kunal stood up he started laughing, "Wow Thakral. You imagine there is no proof. Seems your old age is catching up as now your arguments are based on imagination and not devious mind of yours that plots based on fake evidence. well who cares. You yourself will go to asylum once this case is over right here today."
"Well the reason I came late is I had to arrange for entertainment here in court. Judge here is the authentication certificate for damn good CD I am going to play. (looking at Thakral) it comes from Thakral house. Don't worry dude, not from your room.
Judge allowed to play the CD with projector. In CD -
Kunal, "SO Richa, you are sober right. You know what you are doing?
Richa, "Yes Kunal I am in my full senses. I am ready to answer in with my full will."
Kunal, "So tell me what exactly you did to get me in past 9 years. Start with whole Rohit murder case, I want to see how much you love me."
Richa started talking and she said it all. She started how she plotted with Rohit to frame Siddhi as she wanted Siddhi out of Kunal's life. How they were keeping an eye on Siddhi, setting up accident, getting dead body, where Rohit was hiding, how he framed Kunal, how they fooled Thakral to help them, how and where Rohit died, Siddhi singing the deal, later going to jail how she snatched away the baby and almost ready to kill and ended with she is the one who kidnapped AC2, again to compel Siddhi."
CD ran for 15 minutes covering everything. Lights were turned on and everyone were mere statue, not able to react as didn't know how to. Thakral was worse than a stone, not knowing anything, completely blank.
Kunal again snapped his finger to bring Thakral out, "See Thakral. This is the daughter you have raised. She killed her own brother and indirectly you helped her. Good lord, what kid of people are you? Good your wife is dead or she'll regret giving birth to such beasts."
Kunal looked at RIhca who was all blue like she lost all her blood, "Love me. I must say I didn't know I am such fine thing you went to such an extent to get me."
"Your honor, before anyone claims she was under influence or compelled, it was stated clearly in there Ms. Richa Thakral said everything in her full senses, thus responsible for everything she said. "
"Now my question is what will the court do? 10 years ago she was charged with attempted murder and kidnapping. But her powerful father used his influence to get her out. Once out she again tired to kill a pregnant woman, plotted a devious conspiracy to frame that very woman, killed her own brother her obsession, tried to kill a new born baby and recently kidnapped a 9 year old. Wow, what a resume you have. To satisfy her sickness, she ruined so many lives. This very court she succeeded in her plot to send Siddhi in jail to suffer. This very court ruled against an innocent woman who spent a decade in jail fro no fault of her own. In that, all of us, me, this court and especially Thakral are responsible. My stupidity, court's blindness is responsible why an innocent spent a decade in jail, away from her family and kids. This very court. So my question to your honor, what will be the verdict. Will we again here Ms. Richa to take into custody, start the trial procedure separately for her crimes, arrange next hearing, allow a powerful attorney to again use his influence to help her lunatic daughter? Is she going to continue creating a havoc as she is blessed with a devious father who is aware of legal loopholes or finally justice will be served."
Pin-drop silence followed Kunal's vehement rhetoric. Judge was too compelled and shameful at the same time. Thakral still stood at the same place like a stone where Chopra's were dumbstruck. Richa got as blue as character of "Avtaar" robbed of any oxygen. Twin Anands did not know what to think or do. Diwans were stunned to know what life had been like for SINAL. Siddhi was not able to stop tears heavily flowing form her eyes, simply over-whelmed. One thing for sure, no one has ever seen This KUNAL CHOPRA. Man was simply invincible, nothing could capture him today, he was simply dominating everyone and everything.
