The episode resumes where the previous part left off. Our duo and Purvi rush into the stimulator room along and check up on the motionless Nikhil. They take off his suit and we see that he's okay and wearing a bulletproof jacket underneath, and the "bullet" which has pierced it is actually a screw. They search the entire room and Daya sir finds a hole in one of the lights' fittings, while Abhijeet finds the cap on the floor below and deduces that's where the screw came from. Daya sir decides to unscrew and remove the light for examination. Abhijeet sir angrily accuses the two scientists and says a gun had specifically been installed behind that light to assassinate Manish. Purvi points out that a task like that could not have been accomplished without their involvement. Daya sir removes the light, but surprisingly there's no gun to be found behind it. Nikhil insists that there was nobody in the room but him; Abhijeet sir says that the screw had to be fired from there itself.
In the forensic lab, we have a nice little casual scene of Dr. Salunkhe and ACP sir teasing each other about the missing gun and the cops apparently being unable to find it (I suggest checking it out; too nicely vivid to be effectively described here). Dr. Tarika shows them what apparently is the gun - the badge present on the spacesuit, which has a bullet hole itself. Dr. Salunkhe demonstrates that there's a large magnet fitted inside it. The stimulation room developed a magnetic field upon being activated, and the magnet within the badge attracted the screw upon coming close to it, which pierced Manish's chest with lethal force and killed him. ACP sir construes that Arun or Rahul are responsible for fitting the magnet in the badge.
Arun desperately suggests that that particular screw in the light must've been fitted loosely and pulled out when the magnetic field was generated inside the room. Abhijeet sir shows them the magnet hidden in the badge and points out that it was intentional murder. Daya sir shows the nail recovered from Manish's corpse and duo point out that it was replaced with the screw in the same hole for the attempted attack on Nikhil. Daya sir slaps Rahul, who cries and says they had put another guy in the room last evening at 6:30 and nothing happened to him. Abhijeet sir concludes that someone sneaked in there last night to fit magnets into the badges and nail into the hole. Daya sir says that since the place is guarded at night, he must've entered during daytime and hidden there until night, possibly behind a pair of prop statues there. Purvi wonders how he/she managed to sneak into the stimulator room and fit in the screw without being noticed by the two scientists.
Abhijeet sir decides to account for every second of time following the discovery of Manish's body, and asks Nikhil to check the length of Arun's call in the phone logs. Arun says he left the room in search for phone network after discovering Manish's body. Recreating the scene with the help of a stopwatch, Abhi sir discovers that it takes 13 seconds to get from there to the place indicated by Arun. Nik finds that the phone call took 35 seconds - aka, 48 seconds overall. Abhijeet sir asks the scientists to go back to the room and emerge to talk on phone for 35 seconds on his signal. He instructs Purvi to hide behind the prop statues and install the screw in the hole there in the same time. He starts the stopwatch and the two parties do as instructed; Purvi manages to fit in the screw in the nick of time and hastily looks around for a place to hide. As time runs out, duo and the others reenter the room and are shocked to find her vanished. Soon, Purvi reveals herself from the niche underneath the control panel, indicating that's where the killer had been hiding. (A scene brilliantly directed and performed by all, especially our duo and Ansha ma'am. ) They spray the area for fingerprints and manage to find large hand marks on the floor.
In the bureau, Sachin wonders why Arun and Rahul didn't see the killer crouching under there. Dr. Salunkhe reveals that the killer was a girl aged 25-26 years, as indicated by the fingerprints they found. Sachin decides to take fingerprints of all ladies in Manish's house.
The team does the aforementioned task, but none of the fingerprints match. ACP sir says that only Shikha is left now; Rakesh says she's sick in her room. They enter it and find it empty, and much money and valuables missing. Rakesh says they never saw her leave the house; Sachin sees the open window and construes she fled from there. They search the room and Freddy sir finds bloodstained tissue paper in the waste bin. ACP sir says Shikha must've injured someone, wiped the blood here and fled with the money. He instructs Sachin to contact all airports, bus stands etc. and seal off her escape routes.
Sudhanshu is seen talking on phone when Shikha arrives there, introducing herself as his old friend and requests him for help.
In the bureau, Daya sir questions the two scientists. Arun says some lady officer had called him; Abhijeet sir asks Shreya to check his phone. Sachin says they've confirmed it was a call from Switzerland, and the number is currently switched off. He does provide a list of all other calls made from that number. Abhijeet sir calls one of those numbers and it turns out to be that of Rahul's phone. Rahul tries to flee; Daya sir seizes and SLAPS (tm) him once again. Rahul confesses that a lady named Dolly had paid him 5 lakh rupees. He speaks her number aloud; Arun is enraged and says that it is his girlfriend Rashmi's number. He shows them her photo, which Rahul recognizes as Dolly.
In the forensic lab, Dr. Salunkhe informs duo that the blood found in Shikha's bedroom isn't that of Manish. He says that from Dolly's fingerprints, they've discovered that she used to take a highly addictive drug named metha-amphetamine and the pattern they observed indicates that she was trying to fight against her addiction and was likely visiting some rehab centre for that purpose.
ACP sir, Daya sir, Purvi and Pankaj visit the rehab centre and, after greeting and encouraging the youngsters there, find out that Dolly was talking to some contract killer named Acid Raju on phone, who is known for hiring assassins for carrying out his hits. ACP sir construes that this guy enlisted Dolly to assassinate Manish. Daya sir says they need to capture Acid Raju to find out who paid for the hit.
Dhenchu leads Daya sir to a guy who pretends to be blind in order to pick unsuspecting people's pockets on the streets. Our duo capture him and, after some persuasion, he divulges the location of Acid Raju's hideout.
Daya sir, Purvi and Pankaj break into Acid Raju's den and find him lying dead, his chest pierced with a nail like Manish's. They find a gun with magnet fitted inside and several metal nails/screws lying around. Daya sir construes that this guy was experimenting with the gun and was accidentally killed when one of the nails there was propelled straight on to impale his chest. They search the place; Purvi finds a bag full of cash, blood money paid to kill Manish. Daya sir checks his mobile and discovers that Shikha was the last person who called him. He says they can get to her via Dolly. He instructs her to retrieve Acid Raju's call details.
We see Dolly packing her bags and equipping a revolver. Just as she prepares to leave, two armed men enter the house and corner. She unsuccessfully tries to bribe them. ACP sir, Daya sir, Purvi and Pankaj track Dolly's mobile to the house and enter it to find both the armed men lying dead upon the floor. They check the corpses and discover that the men had their necks snapped only a while ago. Pankaj says it must've been a powerful man; ACP sir points out Dolly was an experienced criminal as well. Purvi finds a photo of Dolly with the house's address written on its back in one of their pockets, indicating they had been sent to murder her. ACP sir construes Shikha paid Acid Raju to kill her husband Manish; Raju handed over the task to Dolly. Once the task was done, Shikha killed Acid Raju and was apparently after Dolly now. Abhijeet sir calls him and informs that Shikha's phone has been activated, but from a second SIM card. The latter instructs him to find out her whereabouts via the IMEI number.
Our duo, Freddy sir and Shreya track Shikha's mobile signal to a group of punks in an alley. Abhijeet sir calls posing as Chacha just to confirm. Following a chase, they capture the main guy and demand for Shikha's whereabouts.
The team finds Shikha tied up in a dark room and releases her. Abhijeet sir angrily demands who did it; she says it was Manish's killer.
We see a drunken Sudhanshu raving about his deeds; Dolly turns up and says she's already killed the two hitmen he'd sent after her. She accuses him of betrayal and prepares to shoot him, but is disarmed by ACP sir who reveals that her real name is Rashmi. Sudhanshu tries to feign innocence. When it fails, he tries taking Freddy sir hostage, but the latter overpowers him. Sachin hands him a crackling SLAP (tm).
Sudhanshu confesses that he wanted to open a space travel company but was facing tough competition from Arun's already famous company. So he decided to have a high-profile murder committed there in order to have it defamed and closed down. He hired Acid Raju for this task, who in turn passed it on to Dolly, who managed to obtain Arun's fingerprints and entered the stimulator room to put the nail/screw there. Shikha had visited Acid Raju to put a hit on Manish's head, unaware that Sudhanshu had already done the same and Raju was dead. Abhijeet sir says that the three of them shall now be executed for their vile crimes.
