Annika is crying in her room thinking about Shivaay. Gauri is consoling her.
Gauri: Don’t cry, di. Nothing will happen to jiju. Don’t lose your hope. I have a confident that jiju never done the murder.
Annika: I know, Gauri. Shivaay can’t murder anyone. I can sure about that. What I’m worrying now that Shivaay has escaped from the police. All the evidence are against him. I’m scared that the police might do something to him. (Cries badly.)
Gauri could understand Annika’s fear and she is worrying the same too. But she can’t show her fear to her di or Annika will be more worried. Gauri composed herself.
Gauri: Arrey, you are worrying about this. Di, jiju knows the police are searching for him. He must be very careful and hiding at a safe place.
Annika: (holds Gauri’s hands) Gauri, I don’t want anything to happen to Shivaay. We must do something to save him from this murder case. (Gauri thinks for a while.)
Gauri: Let’s go and meet Bhavya. (Annika agrees and they leave from there.)
Bhavya: Listen, Mrs Annika. I can’t do anything in this case. All the evidence are against your husband. Moreover, he has escaped from the police. This is strong enough to prove that he is the murderer.
Gauri: But Bhavya, jiju has ran because he is confused. He didn’t remember what happened that night. Maybe he ran away because he is innocent. It doesn’t mean only the one who is guilty will escape from the police. Innocent people can escape too.
Annika: Please do something, Bhavya. My Shivaay can’t kill anyone. (Bhavya recalls how Shivaay saved Annika from Daksh by jumping from the building. She saw the love he was having for Annika in his eyes that day. She too felt that Shivaay didn’t commit the crime but she doesn’t get any evidence for that.)
Bhavya: I can understand your feelings, Mrs Annika but I can’t do anything against the law. We might can do something if we get any clues or evidence on his favour. As I tried, I can’t find anything favourable for him. (Annika cries again. Gauri takes Annika from there.)
Gauri: Di, don’t worry. The God knows what is the truth. He will definitely help us.
Annika: (looks at the sky) God!! Please do something. Please save my husband from this case. He is innocent and you know it. If you are really existing in this world, prove my husband’s innocence and make the real culprit to get caught.

Anjali: Amma, Mumbai rombe thooram!! (Mom, Mumbai is very far.)
Arjun: Namme enna nadantha poge porom?? Flight yeruna konje nerathuleye poyiralam. Sari nu sollu, Anjali. (Are we going there by walking?? If we take flight, we will reach there in few hours. Just say yes, Anjali.) (Anjali is about to say something but her mobile rings. She answers her call.)
Anjali: Yes, sir!!
Shalu: Pochi!! Namme enggeyo poge mudiyathu. Ammakku thirumbavum velei vanthuruchi. (It’s gone!! We can’t go anywhere. Mom has received a new work.) (Arjun nods.)

Arjun: Yaaru?? Un higher officer’ah?? Enna sonnaru?? Puthu case’ah?? (Who was that?? Your higher officer?? What did he say?? Any new case??) (He asks her like an investigation officer while Anjali gives him a weird look.)

Shalu: Appo, naame Mumbai’ku poroma?? (That means are we going to Mumbai??) (Anjali nods. Shalu grins happily.) Mama, un plan padi naame Mumbai’ku porom. (Uncle, as per your plan, we are going to Mumbai.) (Arjun looks at her in shock and signs her to stop.)

Shivaay comes out from a hotel after washing his face. He is very much exhausted because of running since yesterday. He was thinking what to do to prove his innocence. His eyes caught a news on TV about him. Mohit’s announcing reward for the person who will find Shivaay has shocked him. Few people started to see Shivaay. Shivaay escapes from there but not for long. The police has arrived there. Shivaay runs again from there. He is about to cross the road in front of him but one of the policeman takes out his gun and shoots. The bullet hits Shivaay’s leg. Shivaay screams in pain. The police runs towards him but Shivaay manages to cross the road before they reach him. The police too cross the road but they can’t find Shivaay. Shivaay is hiding behind a tree controlling his pain. The police missed to see him and leave from the place.
Shivaay: No, I can’t let them to catch me. I need to find the evidence to save me. (Looks at his leg.) Aargghhh!! It’s painful. I need to get this treated. But how?? Everyone must have seen the news. (Sighs and leaves from there limping.)
To be continued….
