First kill – Part I
Everyone in the police station (no not the ones who were behind the bars) was in a jubilant mood except for sub inspector Naresh Deshmukh. Everyone was happy because they have knocked down Deepak, a well-known gangster of Mumbai, whom police was looking for over five years. Naresh was not happy because he was the one who killed him and it was his first time, in fact the first day on his duty. Every one was trying to cheer him up, but in vain. He was looking at a wallet while everyone else was busy deciding the date of a grand party for all of them who were involved in this mission.
Naresh had found the wallet from Deepak’s pocket. It contained a photo of a girl and an address on the other side of the photo. Apart from this everything else in the wallet was of no use to him. Naresh wanted to return Deepak’s dead body to his parents or someone who knew Deepak and who could perform the final rituals. He informed his seniors about his intentions and they immediately approved it.
The next day Naresh with the help of his senior’s informers found the girl in the photo. She was a bar dancer and her name was Chanda. Naresh met her in the evening at the bar and enquired about Deepak. Chanda told Naresh that both of them loved each other and Deepak had promised to get married to her the next month as she was pregnant. It was Deepak’s baby. Also, she said that Deepak was finding a way out of the bad world. Deepak’s news came to her as a shock and she broke hearing about Deepak’s killing. Naresh tried to find about Deepak’s parents but Chanda was just not in the state of telling anything thing. Naresh knew it was time to leave.
His next stop was the address. He knocked at the door and he found an old lady on the other side of it. He gave his introduction to her and she fearfully let him inside the house. He saw on old man looking at him curiously. He showed them Deepak’s photo and asked them if they knew anything about the guy in that picture. They said it was their son Manoj who works in Bangalore as an electrician. Naresh was astonished and thought he have killed the wrong person.
