The Femme Fatale- V- The Final Move

Khanna Murder Case Solved
The much hyped murder case of Dinesh Khanna, the branch head of ABC Corp is almost solved claims the local police. He was found dead last week in his bedroom recovered by his brother Dr. Sahil Khanna- a graduate from Harvard School of Medicine, in the early morning.
He died due to an overdose of chloral i.e. a compound formed when brandy and water are mixed. In the first instance it looked like an accident but as the investigations proceeded, the crime scene looked suspicious. When the brother of the deceased was inquired, it was established that they had had an argument on the day of the death.
Though Dr. Sahil Khanna pleads innocent, the case looked shady when the colleagues of Dinesh Khanna confirmed that the brothers had been arguing for the past week in the office premises and it turned out that they had been planning to pin down an innocent girl Ms. Anjali Kapoor, the creative head of the ABC Corp who had an affair with deceased’s brother since past two months.
When Ms. Kapoor was probed, she admitted that she overheard the brothers talking and felt deceived. She had an argument with Doctor Khanna the week before the death and walked out of the relationship. She is reported to be in a trauma due to the broken relationship and is still under medication with a renowned psychologist of the town. However, the court has given a clean chit to Ms. Kapoor while Doctor Khanna is under judicial custody on non- bail able warrant.

Anjali folded and put down the news paper and smiled to her friend Dr. Sameer Mehra- Psychologist.
“Happy?” Sameer poked her.
“Elated” she replied smiling even wider.
“I still find it hard to imagine. A girl of principles like you managed to get the brothers down.” He exclaimed.
“I told you I am going to win this game by hook or crook. They thought they were smart enough to get me. But I got them first.”
“When you asked me about the modus operandi, I was doubtful if you could do that.”
“I had to. I still remember the day when I poured the high concentration chloral into their used brandy from the bottle I took with me in my hand bag on one of my so called dates with Sahil at their apartment. I knew I could be a suspect, therefore the break up drama had to follow a few days later. The modus operandi had to be simple enough for Dinesh to be framed if DOCTOR Sahil had to be the victim. Then all I had to do was to wait and watch. Though I dint know who would die and who will be framed. But I dint mind it either ways. They were both in the line. Albeit I am going to miss those awesome orgasms. And thank you Sameer for all you did for me.” She boasted.

They both laughed aloud.

P.S. I googled a lot to find an apt Modus Operandi, I wanted a cold blooded murder though, but still nothing could convince me. Then I had to settled at the most common one. Please bear with me.

The suspense, the drama, the high-voltage emotions... maatey, u rock!!

Kya twist hain kahaani mein...mazaa aa gaya. I gotta say I love that bitch Anjali.

Harshita said...

Arey reminds me matlab yeh nahi tht it is same... par yaad hain usmein aisi hi awesome stories aati thi... mind-blowing type ki

Ria said...

Arjun said...

Came out well Richa..!! :) :)

It was good .. :)


ANWESA said...

hey,this was hilarious.cudnt think of such a thing...salutes...

Jinxed Pixie said...

Its greeaaaatttttt!!!!

Pity, I read the ending before reading the other parts! :(

But I will, as soon as the net starts working properly..

muthu said...

K. Richa.. One long and a good read.

U started it as a romance and pretty much diverted the entire stream to end it as a murder mystery. Good going Richa.

The idea of murder and modus operandi was interesting.

But I thought that you could have written 3 or more episodes. The story felt a bit rushed. You brang in a lot of absolutely intersting elements and you could have carried the tale to 8 or more posts...

Yeah, sex as a tool in the office scenario is a long discussed and fictionalized topic and you did justice to the subject.

Have you read Micheal Cricton's novel disclosure.

It deals with almost the same scenario as you have put it in your tale.

You should read it. Sexual harassment complaints and scandals can not only put you out of job but can deeply destroy U and your reputation.

And *jus a thought* you could have underplayed the heroine. By doing so, the climax would have been more of a twist. (Since U showed the heroine as also playing the game- I kind a expected her to kill one of the brothers and land the doubt of the kill on the other.)

And I love to read more of your fiction yaar...

Do write more.

Cheers then.


Mahul Bhattacharya said...

I love the story. You surprised everyone, and the ending is definitely brilliant.

Only complaint- We could do with a way better modus operandi. For example, both bro's could have died with chloral, leaving no one but Anjali to be framed.

But still a brilliant rocking story!

Arv said...

a perfect murder...

wat a way to end this :)

loved it so much da...

take care... cheers//

Karthik said...

Amazing plot and an even better finish! Hats -off. It literally made me sit at the edge of the seat to know the much awaited climax.
Though I personally felt that the modus operandi was fine,the much hyped & glorified determination of Anjali to retaliate for the 'hardship' caused,could have been done away with,which could have given an even more nail-biting finish.
Nevertheless,full marks for your narration :-)
Raring to catch up with ur upcoming ones darling.

bondgal_rulz said...

яノςんム said...

@ Jinxed pixie,
lolz.. it will take off the essence of the story though!! :D but do try it :D

яノςんム said...

@ Muthu,
thnx for ur comment, it tells me u read it thoroughly :D

i wud correct u, i thot i wasnt portraying romance, it was pure lust as u call it..
thnx for liking it though..
yeah i puposely rushed it up, left some loose end for the reader's imagination to run wild.. had i dragged it to another 2-3 posts, it wud have taken off the essence and thrill..

no, i havent read the novel u talked about, but i sure will get it, thnx for pointing it out :)

underplaying the heroine is an idea different form my idea.. i told the story from heroine's point of view, had i done it otherwise, it wud have been used then.. but thnx for ur suggestions..

and thank u soo much for liking it.. i wud sure try bringing on more :)

яノςんム said...

@ Mahul,
thank god for u arent disappointed!! :D

umm, yeah even that is one option i had, but then the title of the story wanted Anjali to win :D

we'll try more though :D

Mahesh Sindbandge said...

I short of words....

I dint expect Anjali could go so far..

You have written this story really well and each part was a different phase in the story. No two parts were on similar lines and the portrayal of Anjali is Awesome..

Very good story..

I think i covered all the parts now. :-P

Keep writing.. :-)
