Shoot Out at Lokhandwala


What you see in my hand.. that is..

..Mumbai police's standard issue.

9 mm bullet shell.

Here not just one, but countless

such bullets are scattered.

Since yesterday you all are

watching on our channel.. the Mumbai police

had transformed..

..a residential area

into a battlefield.

This is not a terrorist's den.

Then why 400 policemen

had surrounded..

..this place yesterday?

Here ordinary people like you and

me stay with their children.

Then why more than 3000

rounds were fired here?

To kill 6 terrorists, 1 12 citizens'

life was put into danger.

The police will have to answer

all these questions.

I am Mita Matu, reporting for

TVN.. Mumbai, Lokhandwala.

Because of one officer, the entire..

..police department is distressed.

This is shameful, sir!

We can't forgive Khan.

I mean without justification..

without authorisation..


a residential building..

..firing without caring

for the citizen's life..

..all this is written in

which police manual, sir?

We are here to protect..

not to kill.

This is the limit, sir!

Khan should be punished.

And I demand it!

Right now he and his officers

should be suspended!

And there should be an inquiry!

Till the time the inquiry is not

over, you all are suspended.

Now our job lies in your hand.

Not job, life!

Now all of yours life

lies in my hand!

Hey! No smoking in this room!

So.. sue me!

Is this inquiry

a game for you, Khan?

It was never a game in the

first place! It was war!

1984! Operation Blue Star!

Blue Star was successful! But violence

spread in the whole country!

What was your connection

with all this?

Terrorists escaped from Punjab and..

..they entered Mumbai's

Sikh dominated areas.

Bhandup! Charkop!

They had learnt of a way to make

rich Sikhs shell out money.

Quietly give us 20 lakhs!

Otherwise we will kill

your family members!

Gradually their terrorism spread

in ordinary Sikhs too.

Where was the police?

The police would have done something

if they had got the report.

But one day the police found out.

Sub-inspector Abhishekh Matre.

My best officer.

Hey! What is this?

This is Abhishekh Matre speaking.

Dahisar, check post.

3 suspects in white gypsy with AK 47.

Yes! I am sure it was AK 47!

Take him!

Shamsher! Your daughter

is waiting for you.

I have to go!

No! Not today!

Rohini, try to understand!

I am trying to understand, Shamsher!

Do you know since when your daughter

was waiting for her birthday?

So that.. at least for one

day you will be with her.

I don't have time for

all this, Rohini.

Yes. You have time for killers and

rapists. But not for your family.

Abhishekh Matre too had a family.

His child became an orphan

before being born.

You only tell me what should

I do? I shouldn't go?

I should sit here and eat cake!


Good morning, sir.

- Good morning, Khan. Come.

What's the matter, Khan?

Is it an important matter that

you had to come home on Sunday?

Sir, just now I have received

the information..

..that Matre's killers are

hiding in Antop Hill.

Oh! So shall I issue search

and arrest warrant?

No search and arrest warrant, sir.

I don't want to waste time and papers.

I want to directly kill them.

So what do you want?

TV coverage, sir.

A journalist will come with

us and cover it live.

So that people will watch it.

And the terrorists will

get the message.

That coming to Mumbai will

lead to their death.

Who will take the camera and

face terrorists' bullets?

We will find someone, sir.


- Is fine.

More than the lipstick..

you will need this.

Stay away from line of fire.
