“He had worn a black jacket and gloves and he…” Raghav cut my statement and said “Whom are you talking about Kalpi? Whom did you see and when?”
“That day when Sonia was murdered…I saw a person dragging her body and …”
“You saw Sonia that day? And you still dint tell me…Why?”
“I dint know it was Sonia Raghav…I just saw a man dragging a body and then eating it…That scene was horrifying and…I dint know whether you’ll believe me or not…But that day…” I gulped down as those words weren’t coming out from my mouth. “That day…I saw your dad in the jungle…”
Raghav stood dumbstruck before me and kept hearing me. I told him whatever I had seen that night and yesterday night as well.
After few moments, Raghav got up from the bed and dragged my hand while taking me outside the room. I dint understand what he was doing and he kept making me walk downstairs and called out for Rajesh.
I stared at Raghav and then at Rajesh who rushed from his room and stood in front of Raghav.
“Look at this man Kalpi…He just lost his daughter…His only child…Why do you think he will do such a thing? He will make my da…Mr. Vikram Sighania to stay here? After knowing that he killed my mother?” Raghav held my hands and said “Why do you think he will do this Kalpi? He is like a father figure to me…There’s nobody else in this world who I can trust more than him…When I was just 6 years old, this man looked after me…gave me food to eat…Made me study…Gave me all the love that his own daughter and wife deserved…He decided to serve me rather than his own family…He sacrificed everything for me Kalpi…Why will he do this?”
