The Accused

"Are you Kunal Narayan?"

"Yes... Hey! Get your hands off me! Hey... What have I done? Hey! Ow...!"


"I don't know... what you're talking about."

"Stop slurring and sit up straight when you're talking to me!"

"I'm sorry, sir... Half my teeth are gone... And my jaw... I can only slur... Right now this is how I talk only... sir... Please, sir... Please ask madam. She will tell you. I never touch her sir... Never, not once... I don't see her for months, sir... Ow! Please, no, sir... I don't even have a car, sir... "

"You don't have to have a car. You just have to have a friend who does. Where are they, those two filthy friends of yours?"

"You ask madam, please sir, I don't ever touch her. And I don't talk to her or even SMS her in months... And even before I never touch her."

"Oh, but you threatened her with so much, didn't you? I have it here on record, you bhenchod! Right here. Are you blind or what?"

"Sir, please, no, sir... Those... Those were... just words only... I never touch her..."

"Sit up and stop slurring!"

"Sorry, sir... I have three sisters. Believe me please. I would never dishonour a girl. I would never..."

"But you said she had better watch her step, didn't you? You said a young woman shouldn't be running a business on her own, didn't you? Five months ago, didn't you? And you followed her for a week as she checked her vending machines from office to office, didn't you? Answer me! No? No? Too tired now to talk, hey? Huh? Huh! How do you think it feels to be raped? Huh? Huh! Pass me that rod."
