Location: Karan’s residence
As karan is all ready to go out, the doorbell rings, and he opens the door surprised to find shaurya standing, who eyes him tensedly. he taunts shaurya as to what good luck he has that shaurya has come to his doorstep, and asks if he didnt insult enough. shaurya says that he didnt come here to fight or insult him, but needs to talk. karan is amused and says that he is surprised how humble he speaks to him today. Shaurya says that he doesnt have much time, as its diya’s first hearing in the court in the next half an hour. Shaurya tells karan that he needs his tesimony and presence in the court today, for diya’s case. karan taunts him that thats the reason for him such a humble discourse in front of her. Shaurya asks if they can go right now and talk later. karan says that they can go later too then. Shaurya dryly asks what he wants and what should he do. karan eyes him evilly, as an evil idea engulfs his mind, saying that this is a good question. He asks him to apologise, for the insult and the slap, and his attitude. For diya’s sake, shaurya curtly apologises and then asks if they can go now. Karan asks him to do it diligently, and apologise with his hands on both his ears. shaurya says that they dont have much time. Karn asks him to get going then, as when diya asked him to do so in office, he immediately complied. shaueya says that it was his fault that day. karan says that he is wrong today too, and hence should get to apologising if he wants him to go to the court for diya’s case. shaurya asks him not to be childish, as diya and urmi have reached the court, and they need to hurry, as they can talk about this stuff later too. karan is adamant, that he should get to doing what he wants, or else he wont land in court today, and with the same attitude that he threw him out of the house the other day. He catches both his ears, and apologises, fighting back his rage, while karan enjoys every second. he says that tables have turned, as yesterday he insulted and today he is apologising. shaurya asks her to come along. karan says that he doesnt feel like it. Karan says that he wants to go on the right path now. Shaurya tells him that only 15 minutes are left, and asks him to hurry up. but karan continues his banter saying that he cant hurt diyas anymore, as she would build up unnecessary expectations from him. Shaurya says that he isnt asking him to get diya as his fiancee, but just say the truth in the court. karan intentionally doesnt comply. Shaurya says that he did what he asked her to do and drags karan, but he asks him to stop for a minute, and then adds that he shall go, but has a condition. Shaurya asks what. He smiles evilly.
Location: In the court
urmi and diya arrive in the court with anirudh, who tells them that ashwini has asked them to meet here only. Anirudh says that he would just go and check. Diya and urmi wait. Just then, some people recognise diya as the reporter and who got raped, and comment snidely how bful she still looks after the incident. One of the lawyers comes and hollers at the men who were leering and making snide comments. the men apologise and leave hastily. He approaches them and apologises to diya and urmi. She thanks him, and then he asks if she is diya. Diya complies, and he says that he too has a daughter her age, and he understands her pain badly, as still men think about women as a commodity. urmi says that they have to fight the system still. He says that he has studied the case, and hopes and prays that they get justice soon. He blesses her and leaves. Diya comments what a good natured man he is. urmi complies. Just then,, a lawyer comes, introduces herself as Ashwini Karmarkar and approaches diya asking if she is the rape victim. She nervously complies. Diya asks if they can talk. She rudely responds that they can talk inside only and it isnt needed to chat right now, as its getting late for the court. Diya is tensed and worried. urmi is boggled. They enter inside.
Inside the court, diya is worried that karan and shaurya havent reached. urmi and anirudh assure her that they shall come. the judge arrives. All are nervous. He identifies the public prosecutor and the defense lawyer, addressing diya with the imaginary name of Roshni. urmi and diya are shocked to see that its the same person who they met earlier outside the court. mr. Nigam smiels evilly. Ashwini begins, and starts to present the case, wherein the victim filed the complaint and then the goons were nabbed. she asks the judge the permission to get diya in the witness box, so that she can present her case first hand. Diya is tensed, and urmi and anirudh support her and she stands. She takes the swear and oath. she then says that she is Diya and not the other fake name, because of some incident that happened to her, where she wasnt at fault. the judge asks if she is sure as its for her benefit. Diya says that changing the name shall not be in her benefit, but justice shall, and that she is ashmaed as she didnt do anything wrong, and hence she has nothing to hide, and infact the rapists should be ashamed after what they did. the whole court starts clapping. the judge asks them to stop, and asks diya to think again. diya is strict, saying that this decision shall embolden those fgirls who fight back and try to forget this tragic incident thats a nightmare, for the sake of the society and that she wants to be a role example for such girls. The judge commends her emotions and says that she shall be addressed as diya hereforth. he asks ashwini to proceed. she starts interrogation with diya, and asks her to recount it all. diya narrates everything. she was asked if she tried to prevent herself, and that means she can identify them. Diya agrees and says that she can identify easily, as they also had sketches done. she points out to the rapists. the defense lawyer says that he objects as there’s unsubstantiated accusations against his client. Ashwini asks him to let the victim present her statement. The judge asks him to speak when he presents his side. the judge sustains the objections. Ashwini then calls the rapists in the witness box. They comply, as per the judge’s demand. She asks diya to identify clearly, and diya complies and agrees vehemently. the defense lawyer gets up again, saying that they can assume she has been raped, but how to prove that they are the rapists, with what evidence. Ashwini says that the medical reports were conducted 8 days later, which proved the rape, but doesnt confirm the identity of the rapists. the defense lawyer points out again that there’s no solid evidence that they are the rapists, instead of one of them. he asks if they have any. urmi is shocked at his callousness and hypocrisy. he says that there’s no evidence and that his cleint has been tortured mentally and physically unnecessarily. He asks the judge not to waste time of the court, and let them be aquitted. Ashwini says that she has an evidence, in the form of an eyewitness, diya’s fiancee, Karan, and asks the permission to present him in the witness box. They are tensed. urmi and anirudh wonders where are karan and shaurya, as if they dont reach on time, there would be huge trouble. Ashwini asks where’s karan, and urmi assures that he would be here in sometime. Urmi eyes diya helplessly. All are tensed. the screen freezes on diya’s worried face.
Precap: The defense lawyer insists that due to lack of evidence, the judge should reject the case, and aquit his clients. Diya and urmi watch helplessly. Obliviously to all this, Shaurya arrives hurriedly in his car, with karan casually and carelessly lagging behind. he nudges karan to hurry along.
Location: In the court room
When karan doesnt come, all get tensed. The defense lawyer says that there’s no solid evidence and its just a wastage of court’s room. Urmi vehemently says that he shall just come. the judge asks her to speak through her counsel. Mrs. karmakar pleads for somemore time, while the defense lawyer doesnt let her plead. The defense lawyer insists that due to lack of evidence, the judge should reject the case, and aquit his clients. Diya and urmi watch helplessly. Diya too pleads that karan might come anytime. The defense lawywer asks how can a fiancee be late to the girl’s court hearing, and he would have been here if he had to. The judge is about to give his verdict, when urmi asks the counsel to demand for somemore time. Ashwini then asks the court, to study the case more thoroughly, for some more time. The judge allows, overruling the defense’s onjections. He then insists that due to the lack of any solid evidence, incriminating his cleints, they should be given bail. the judge agrees, while diya and urmi haplessly, point out that these ghastly criminals cant be left loose, so that they can molest other innocent women. Ashwini doesnt make much of an effort. the judge gives them bail, while the reapists are amused. Diya is distraught. the judge gives the date for the second hearing and then adjourns the court. After all leave, the defense lawyer comes to diya tauntingly, and says that they shouldnt have gotten bail, but that is how the judiciary works. He furthermore points out the weak lawyer that she has got, who is satisfied with her goverment job and salary. He says that if they had worked a little, then the nations wouldnt have been in tatters. he leaves. urmi comes and confronts the lawyer. urmi asks the prosecutor how could she have let them get bail, and not say anything. she asks how would she have avoided. urmi points out her incompetence, and says that she didnt make any effort, and that if this happens, they would lose the case, even before it starts. The lawyer keeps pointing that she did what she could. Anirudh says that urmi is right, and had she not pointed out to demand for more time, they would have lost the case, on the defense lawyer’s persistence. The lawyer says thats not her problem, as her evidence didnt turn up, and they are pointing accusing fingers at her. urmi says that there might have been some problem, and that she should have fought for it, but she gave up comepletely. The lawyer points that they rarely have a 20% chance, as is it, to win. Diya asks if she doesnt have any conviction, then how do they put their faith in her to win. She says that she doesnt have any other option, and asks her to suck it up, or else do whatever she wants to. She callously says that she got thousands of cases given by the govt to handle and that she cant put in more effort than this. she leaves. Diya is apalled, as she wipes her tears. she comes down the wtness box, keeping a brave face, and then urmi comes to her support. Urmi says that the condition she is in, a woman has been fighting and losing for centuries like this, but she wont let history repeat, but they would create history by winning this case, and bringing her justice, hugging her, while both are in tears. Anirudh is emotional too.
Obliviously to all this, Shaurya arrives hurriedly in his car, with karan casually and carelessly lagging behind. he nudges karan to hurry along. he is surprised to find diya, urmi and anirudh out of the courtroom. he asks what about the hearing. urmi says that its over. karan is amused. urmi asks what took them so long, and tells them what happened due to their delay. Shaurya is apalled. Anirudh asks how could shaurya be so irresponsible. he is about to speak, when karan says that shaurya’s car broke down. Urmi asks why couldnt they take an auto. shaurya stands quiet, while karan keeps giving excuses. Shaurya goes aside in anger. Karan assures diya that next time he would handle everything in court. diya stands tensed. urmi coems to shaurya and asks if he actually got late, or there’s something else. While karan tries to appease diya, at a distance, Shaurya narrates everything. urmi is disgusted, and says that she knows what to do with him.
