You are on to it?

- Yes. Go ahead.

But his chances are grim.

- We'll see that in court.

Why did you take up this case?

-Come on! It's my profession.

You know he's a first rate

criminal. Still you...

lt's not for us to decide

if he is guilty or decent.

Let the court decided over it.

You won't improve.

My client Mr Balwant Singh

works for Roshan Electricals.

On the 15th he was on his way to

the bank to deposit 25,OOO in...

...the company's account. He had

a licensed revolver for security.

He had just got in a cab

and inspector Varma ascended.

He had a pistol in hand.

Your honour, Inspector Varma

was in muRi.

And you see, one's identification

is not inscribed on his face.

My client took him for a crook.

And he tried to escape.

Then Mr Vijay threatened

to shoot him.

To defend himself

Mr Balwant fired at him.

lt's not true.

It is baseless.

Because Mr Balwant vey well

knows me as a police officer.

This is not our first encounter.

On the 16th of October l tried

to arrest him at Malighat.

But he managed to escape.

On the 16th of October, Mr Balwant

was lying in the hospital...

...and not in Malighat.

He was ill and was bed-ridden.

This medical certificate...

...proves it.

''Me and you in a locked house''

''And the keys not to be found''

decent man like me...

..can't even walk on the streets!

...and passed remarks at me.
