Chapter XXXVIII: A New conclusion

Date: 16th June 2012

Place: Adyar


At 10 O clock in the morning, Pugazhendhi was at his office.

The previous day was a very hard experience for him.


He was sitting in a silent manner.

Thoughts were happening in his mind in many directions.


Pugazhendhi thought, “Daily, the criminal is doing some activity”

“Mmm…a very clever and determined mind” again thought Pugazhendhi.

He planned the previous day to go to Farooq’s house by afternoon.

Since the death of Raja happened, he was not able to do it.


At that time, Inspector Dhanasekaran entered his room.

Pugazhendhi said, “Good morning sir”


Dhanasekaran said, “Good morning Pugazh”

Pugazhendhi said, “Thank you for visiting my office sir”


Dhanasekaran said, “I came by purpose”

Pugazhendhi said, “Yes tell me, sir”


Dhanasekaran said,” After Raja’s death, I visited Ramapuram yesterday with my team”

Pugazhendhi said,”Oh is it so?”


Dhanasekaran said,” I made inquiries with the guards there”

Pugazhendhi said,”Oh! any valuable information?”


Dhanasekaran said,”mmm… it seems that Raja did some inquiries with a tea shop and a real estate agent”

Pugazhendhi said,”Oh, I see”


Dhanasekaran said, “After the inquiry, he was to go to commissioner office”

Pugazhendhi said, “At that time, the accident happened…right?”


Dhanasekaran said, “Yes, I again inquired the same tea shop and real estate agent”

Pugazhendhi said,”Oh! what did they say?”


Dhanasekaran said, “The owner of the Bungalow is Farooq only”

Pugazhendhi said, “Then?”


Dhanasekaran said, “But Sirish was staying there”

Pugazhendhi said,”Oh is it so?”


Dhanasekaran said, “Both of them used to be colleagues for more than 10 years”

Pugazhendhi said, “Then, how could Sirish have killed Farooq?”


Dhanasekaran said, “Yes, that is what I am thinking”

Pugazhendhi said, “Yes sir, who would kill a 10-year-old friend”


Dhanasekaran said, “Yes, so I conclude that there is a 3rd person apart from Farooq and Sirish in this case”

Pugazhendhi said, “Brilliant sir”


Dhanasekaran said, “Thank you Pugazh”
