Prabhu said, “So, we can’t take chainsaw into consideration”

Pugazhendhi said,”mmm…but likely a sharp rotary cutter connected to the robotic arms”


Prabhu said,”mmm…could be with a smooth cutting edge”

Pugazhendhi said,”mmm…possible”


Prabhu asked, “How are you going to find them out?”

Pugazhendhi said, “Last time itself, we installed CCTV cameras”


Pugazhendhi said, “The cost spent was high on it”

Prabhu said,”Oh I see”


Pugazhendhi said, “The monkey robot destroyed our control room making huge losses”

Prabhu said,”mmm”


Pugazhendhi said, “Now, How can I request for CCTV cameras here?”

Prabhu said, “that too if we don’t know where the next attack will be?”


Pugazhendhi said, “Yes man, this case is always a headache to me”

Prabhu said,”hmmm…”


Pugazhendhi said, “Come on we will go to muniamma’s house and inquire her”

Prabhu asked, “Do you have some more questions with her?”


Pugazhendhi said,” If anything she got noticed yesterday, she will tell us right?”

Prabhu asked,”Hmm…ok, Where is her house?”


Pugazhendhi said, “We need to travel 1 km from here, and we will get a residential area”

Prabhu said,”Ok, come on let us go”


Both of them walked to the place where they parked the bike.

They got on the bike and went to the residential area which Pugazhendhi mentioned.


As they entered the street of Muniamma’s house, they found a huge crowd standing before muniamma’s house.

Preparations for a death funeral were going on there.


On seeing that Pugazhendhi said,”Hey, someone got dead in her family”

Prabhu said, “Come on let use enquire who it is?”


Both of them stopped the bike.

Pugazhendhi asked a passer-by, “Sir, who is dead there?”


The man told him, “It is the husband of Muniamma sir”

Pugahendhi asked, “What is his name?”

The man said,”Marudhamani”

Pugazhendhi asked, “How did he die?”


The man replied, “Yesterday night he got a heart stroke”

Pugazhendhi asked, “Was he a heart patient?”


The man said, “No sir, his field got spoiled, he was not able to handle the loss”

Pugazhendhi said,”Oh! Ok thank you”


The man walked away.

Prabhu said, “See, how many side effects of this case”


Prabhu added, “In one end we have got the sugarcanes destroyed, in the other end we got a death”

Pugazhendhi said, “Last time we lost our officers in the team”


Prabhu asked,”Ok, are you going to enquire her now?”

Pugazhendhi said,”mmm…no, I will enquire her after two days”


Prabhu asked, “Then will I go to your house now?”

Pugazhendhi said,”mmm…ok”


Both of them left the place.

They reached Palayanoor by 11 O clock.


Both of them entered Pugazhendhi’s house.

They sat in the chairs and relaxed.


Prabhu said,”Oh! It is 11 O clock”

Pugazhendhi said, “It seems, we have spent a lot of time in the field”


Prabhu said, “Yes”

Prabhu asked, “Did you enquire this Marudhamani yesterday?”


Pugazhendhi said, “No, he didn’t come for giving the complaint”

Prabhu asked, “Then where was he yesterday?”


Pugazhendhi said,”Hmm…I need to ask it with Muniamma only”

Pugazhendhi added, “Because, I did not see him in the field also”


Prabhu said, “Then he could have been at home”

Pugazhendhi said,”mmmm…yes, but why did not he come to give the complaint?”


Prabhu said,”mmm..There could have been a fight between the husband and wife”

Pugazhendhi said,”mmm…good judgment”


Prabhu said,” A detective mind is a place for all sorts of analysis”

Pugazhendhi said, “But nobody is awarding you with rewards”


Prabhu laughed,”Ha! Ha! Ha!”

Prabhu said,”Ok, I will make my move and you need to report for duty right?”

Pugazhendhi said, “Yes”


Prabhu said,”Ok, we will be in contact through phone, please find a house for me”

Pugazhendhi said,”Ok, I will do it”


Prabhu said, “Bye”

Pugazhendhi said, “Bye!”


Prabhu left the place.

Pugazhendhi went to the room in the first floor to change his dress.


Pugazhendhi got dressed in uniform and got ready for the duty.
