They see that the van keeps coming back again and again, in the CCTV footage, meaning that the van was circling around this area while they raped diya.

Scene 2:
Location: Urmi’s residence
The next day, while urmi works on the case, and anirudh sits, damini comes and taunts urmi, that if she finds time, from being a lawyer, an NGo owner and a hotelier, she should pay attention to her household duties as well. urmi is boggled and asks whats the matter as she seemsd to have things at control in the house. Damini asks if she knows what love is brewing right under their noses. Urmi and anirudh are boggled. damini callously points out, that in the bid to get diya justcie, she is fimrly establishing her feet in this house forever, by trapping the innocent shaurya, to permanent her place, as a part of a vicious plan. they are outraged and anirudh asks damini to shut up. urmi says that she must have had some misunderstanding as it isnt possible. damini says that diya is a rape victim and shaurya, being a good guy standing by her for her support, and hence this is the best bet for her. They are apalled at damini’s callous portrayal of diya and insensitivity towards diya’s tragic nightmare. damini talks about how diya was wet and dancing with shaurya in the rain, when she is engaged to karan. Urmi says thsast she knows about it from shaurya, as diya was happy being in the rain, which is good, as she is forgetting her tragedy slowly. Damini takes it otherwise, while anirudh points out that diya is a gangrape survivor and as a woman asks her to try and understand what she must have gone through, and be sensitive towards her, instead of maligning her character like this. Damini points out that its easy for urmi to say so, since she too wasnt satisfied by one man, and left one to go after the other. urmi is apalled. Anirudh asks her to shut up. But urmi disgustingly talks aloud, that she did bbear with him for seven years, and only when he crossed all limits of atrocities, did she finally decide to leave him.

Damini asks who decides the limits, they themslves, as a woman can bear all she wants, and can also stop if she wants. She gives her example that anirudh isnt the best husband but she still compromsies along, and didnt leave him. Urmi stands up and says that maybe the actual truth is that he is compromising with her and didnt leave her. damini is stunned into silence. she finally speaks up saying that, urmi might be very head strong, but she shouldnt forget what her lmits are, and that she is talking to her mother in law. urmi says that if saying the right thing, is bad manners and arrogance on her past, then so be it. Finally, anirudh speaks up saying that urmi isnt arrogant, but truthful, since its actually, he who is compromising, and not leaving damini, since he couldnt possible, stay with a woman with such a low mentality. damini starts smiling and saying that ofcourse that shall be the cas,e because he never finds fault with urmi, as she is always right. Anirudh says that he does find that urmi is always right, as she actually is, and that she can never stoopd down to the low level mentality that damini has. damini agrees that she has a low mentality andd that now she shall wait to see that in the wake of getting diya justice, how much do they plan to forego of their family. Urmi says that neither diya nor shaurya can be wrong, as she has full faith on her son,his mannerisms and his intentions shall never let him do anything wrong at all. Damini says that they shall see which has more power, her upbringing or samrat’s dirty blood. urmi is distraught. anirudh stands tensed.

While diya combs her hair in the mirror, karan comes out from the bathroom, having freshened up, and leeringly eyes her bareback. he starts with her pretense love, saying that he saw that they were married and living happily, and that he was loving her, and that he is dying to realise the dream. she smiles at him. He hugs her, and then runs his hand through his bare back, trying to take advantage of the pretense love. She jerks him away asking whats she doing. He says that he is just expressing his love, as its his right on her. shaurya passes by and finds him hugging diya. He is tensed. karan asks diya whats the problem. diya insists him not to. Shaurya calls out to her, and both are startled. He asks diya why isnt she ready yet, as its time for the court. he asks karan to come along, as diya has to get ready. karan stays by her side, saying that she shall come after changing. karan resignedly leaves with shaurya, frustrated at his failure. diya stands awkwardly.

Outside, shaurya barely controls his temper, and asks karan to never take advantage of diya again. Karan asks what if he does. Shaurya says that he shall hit him so hard that he shall never forget and asks him to come along. he fumingly complies.

Scene 2:
Location: Gaurav’s residence
Chiku passes by and overhears gaurav’s conversation with nupur, asking her to beware, while she apologising for her slip of tongue. She doesnt realise that chiku is here and continues apologising, while gaurav is tensed. He announces chiku’s arrival, and nupur shuts up and leaves. gaurav faces chiku sternly. Chiku asks what secret were they talking, that stopped, the minute he walked in. Gaurav says that there’s nothing. Chiku asks what relation is going on between the two of them, and whats their deal. gaurav feigns innocence. chiku points out all the contradictory ideas, and then points out that gaurav is being an infidel. gaurav says that it isnt necessary for him to speak. chiku asks if he is embarassed. they scream at each other. Asha comes in asking whats the matter, and chiku walks hastily out in anger. Asha confused goes after him. gaurav wonders how long would he hide, as he cant anymore, that nupur is his wife’s child with her second husband, and he is just taking care of her.

Scene 4:
Location: Court room
Urmi presents an important evidence in the case, and asks the judge to play the CD. he complies. As the van is seen, urmi pauses, and says that this is the van in which diya was raped, and asks for permission to get diya in the witness box, to determine it. The judge complies. Diya comes. Urmi asks if this is the same van and diya complies. The rapists and their lawyer is tensed. Mr. Nigam trivialises saying that they should indeed catch the van atleast. All smile. urmi says that this isnt a comedy case, and they expect seriousness. The judge sustains the objection. Nigam apologises. urmi says that this is the place where diya got trapped by the goons. Nigam says that the rapists not the clients. urmi asks him to let her complete. She then points out that the van location matches the GPS location of their phones, which cant be a co-incidence. diya says that it was these three only in the van, and also identifies the youngest as the person who was driving. nigam says that maybe diya lose her senses to think and understand, as his client has never even seen her before. Mr. Nigam says that they agree that she has been raped, and in that van, which is regrettable, but how can they assume that these were the rapists as there’s no evidence of these three being inside the van raping her. Urmi and diya are tensed. urmi responds that it was them only, and would like to present more witnesses. she says that they went to the RTO to get the details of the registered owner of the van, and calls him in the witness box. Mr. kartik comes. he owes that its his van. he says that he had given it for the past one month, to a garage owner for servicing, and doesnt know about its whereabouts in this month. urmi complies and asks him to step down. he complies. urmi says that she would require the garage owner, Sultan to be in the witness box. He complies and takes his place. She asks him to recognise if this is the van. He does, and says that it came in his garage for maintenance. Sultan says that on the fourth of july, it was stolen. She says that the van’s location and their mobile phone locations match which cant just be an eery co-incidence. the screen freezes on urmi’s determined face.
