Lies of the Heart 29 August 2020: Lies of the Heart update Saturday 29th August 2020, Urmi asks for a private room, as they shall not give a statement in public, and claims it as their right. the police complies. inside, in the prvate chamber, the interrogation continues, while they ask insulting questions, apalling shaurya and urmi. He is angry, while the police assures that this is a part of the enquiry, while saying that they have to file a chargesheet. He asks them all not to behave as if he is raping her, as whats been done is done, and there’s nothing left as it is to be insulted now. she asks him to weatch his attitude, as this is what causes the rape victims to live a life of indignation and solitude. she then asks after he is done writing the fir, for a copy of it. The police asks why they need, as he just wrote it. urmi reminds that its her right. the police silently complies. She inspects and points out that its a van not a car, and asks him to write the prominent and authetic info, and then instructs him to rectify it. he complies, and then refers diya to a female medical hospital. The inspector points to urmi, that since she knows the law so well, she also knows, that the medical confirmation of rape should be done within five days of the accident, hence its futile to conduct the medical test now and that such cases when taken to the court, only result in insult, embarassment and humiliation. Urmi says that she knows, but that doesnt mean she wasnt raped. The police says that if she is saying, then definitely it must have happened. He adds that such cases become media publicity for a couple of days, and at the most, she would get a couple of Tv channel interviews, with a veil across her face. Diya is apalled at his callousness. they coldly thank him, and come out, while diya breaks down. They both ask whats the matter and that she has to be stronger than this. Diya says that she cant do this anymore, while shaurya again emphasises her the need to do this. She says that she doesnt want to fight, and just wants to go home to her family. Diya is again encouraged by shaurya and urmi, thaty she has to get pst this embarassment and taunts, so that she doesnt regret this later in life, and that the diya she knows is a survivor, and that she cant break down like this, and if she is courageous, then she shall win, as she isnt in this alone, and they are with her. Diya wipes her tears.

When the doctor comes out after the test, Urmi asks how is she and she says that she is okay. She says that the condition is better and the necessary examinations are over. She asks why wasnt she brought in before, as the wounds are healing, and she has taken a bath, and changes her clothes, hence she wouldnt be able to get much evidence. urmi says that they know but she wasnt in a mental condition. the doctor emphasises how imp it is to gte the medical test done immediately, and get a report prepared rightaway, to strengthen their case, otherwise the case geos weak. urmi asks if there’s anything else that can help, in a scenario like this.

The doctor says that if they can retrieve the clothes that she was wearing at the time of the incident, then they might manage to get some evidence. Urmi asks diya where are those clothes. Diya is tensed as she tries to remember. urmi says that they shall try and look for it at home, but since much time has passed, maybe they have been misplaced. The doctor says that if thats so, then it shall be difficult to prove that she has been raped, particularly, when there’s no eyewitness even. All are tensed while diya is apalled. the screen freezes on urmi’s tensed face.
