It was a cold-blodded murder, where the owner of that house has been mercilessly killed by smashing his head with a hard rock, and no valubles or money have been stolen from the house, so the motive of this murder cannot be theft, also the suspect has gained free entry into the house as there were no breakages or damages to the main gate or the windows, hence the murderer should be a known person to the family, describes the DIG of police Mr. Ramanathan to all his colleagues, and he was assigning this investigation to the inspector whom he trusts the most, Mr. Varadarajan...
Mr. Varadarajan is one of the most senior police officer who has handled umpty number of cases like this, he is very very successfull in his career and has won many accolades for his abilities in solving some of the complex cases, but as you all know, GOD does not give everything to everyone, he too has his own personal problems in life which he hardly discuss or disclose to his friends. He is very sincere and honest in his profession and never gives up or succumb to pressure. The another reason for Mr. Varadarajan to handle this case personally was that, the deceased was none other than his own uncle.
Varadarajan visited the crime site to investigate further details and also to see if he can get any additional clue. By the time he went to the spot, the chalk diagram was already drawn and the body was removed. Varadarajan spoke to his aunt who was crying in-consolably, she was not present at the house when the crime happened as she was off to Tiruchy to attend a function. Varadarajan spoke to her as a police officer and not as their relative. He asked his aunt if his uncle has any emenies who would have done this, his aunt repled that he is such a nice person and hardly he speaks to anyone.
Varadarajan's family got seperated from his uncle's family due to a land dispuite long long ago, and apparently the case went into the favour of his uncle which made Varadarajan's mother bed-ridden and also that took her life, but leaving aside all the personal grudge on them, Varadarajan was keen in solving this case. He and his team conducted a hunt for discovering any clues at the crime site, but the search turned futile. Then they started investigating the local residents if they did happen to see anyone coming to meet the deceased on the day of crime, but none of the investigations helped Varadarajan to get to a clue.
The entire team was waiting for the post-mortem report which they thought could provide some information and also any clue. The report came saying that the cause of death was due to a very large object that has hit him hard on the skull and there was a very specific mentioning of a Diamond Ring which was recovered from the closed hands of the dead body, with an initial "V" on it. Varadarajan who is already suffering from somnambulism disorder, started to sweat.
