Team Name: Blogstirrers
‘Find about Aryan Ahuja. Find what happened after Cyrus met him.Cyrus wrote a page about him on his blog-What Lies Beneath but his following posts are missing. I have my limitations but you have the resources.Use them.Do not, DO NOT tell about this to anyone,not even the ACP’.
Read Tara as a note was delivered to her.She looked around but no one was to be found.
After reading the note she immediately dialed to contact Cyrus.But he is in police custody.She tried contacting police station.But before she could give her name, she remembered the note-‘Do not tell about this to anyone,not even the ACP’.She disconnected the phone.She rushed outside and called up again from a public phone. This time she used some other name but was told that no one is allowed to speak to him.
Dishearten she went inside the nearby coffee house and ordered for her regular cappuccino.She kept looking at the note while sipping her coffee.
She was a lady of great strength.She had so many admirers.There were so many people who liked and appreciated her for her courageous nature and the kind of assignments she had taken upon.Some used to call her Dragon Lady.Yet today she was here,sitting alone,with no one to support her,with no to trust.
‘I am alone in all this and I have to find the answers.But I cannot do this all by myself.I need help.How do I connect the missing links.Who are the people I can put some faith in.Tara kept thinking, getting more determined with each sip.But there is no news of Shekhar and Roohi,Jennifer escaped Jail,Cyrus is being questioned.Police found new bodies with drugs but the reports are not yet made public. ACP has Shekar’s writing but yet he has not told me what he has found’. Tara read the note and kept wondering. ‘Who is Ahuja and what link he has with this case. What are the broken links in this mystery’.
“I have some bad news Tara”. ACP called up Tara’s phone.”Go On”. “We have just received the information about Shekhar’s whereabouts. He was in Banaras all these days and was working on some secret mission.We have found some scattered pieces of paper from the place he was staying”
“Banaras, why did he go to Banaras”. ‘Does this has something to do with this case.We met Jennifer in Banaras only.Could this be a coincidence’. Tara thought while ACP continued.
“We might get some clue from those”. “He have news that even Aryan Ahuja was there”. “Then what are you waiting for, go and get my Roohi back” Tara interrupted without listening to what ACP had to tell next. “The bad news is that Shekhar got to know that we are coming for him and left the place before we could get to him and”.”And??” Tara’s heartbeat got heavier.”Roohi was taken away from him. I am sorry, but are we are trying our best to get them back”.
Tara couldn’t take anymore and collapsed on the floor.
