MAFIA DON AFZAL GURU SHOT DEAD

By Neel Anil Panicker (EPISODE 34 OF A DANGEROUS LOVE)

“Shootout in Tis Hazari Courts: Dreaded Mafia Don Afzal Guru shot dead; 5 others killed including 2 cops

The nation’s capital today reverberated with the sound of gun fire as Tiz Hazari Courts was witness to one of the bloodiest incidents of violence in a very long time.

After an over hour long encounter during which saw as many as 75 rounds were fired by both sides, the Crime Branch wing of Delhi Police gunned down most feared mafia don Afzal Guru.

Three of his associates including his most trusted lieutenant and right hand man Salim Mirchi were also killed in the hour long encounter that took place during peak time at around two in the afternoon in and around the Central Courtyard. It is said that at the time of the encounter the courts were in recess and the place was the place was teeming with litigants and lawyers.

According to well places sources, the incident occurred when a group of 12 prisoners including Ali, an acolyte of the don were being escorted out of a jail van and taken to the courtrooms  for their respective hearings.

Though the exact of sequence of events is yet to reprised, it is learnt from well placed sources that Ali has gone missing post the encounter though the police has not yet officially confirmed it.

‘We are investigating the matter from all angles. As of now we are not ruling out gang rivalry. We believe…”

Inspector Sharma threw aside the morning’s paper even as his face creased into a big smile.

‘Gang rivalry…bull shit. That’s what they write. That’s what you tutor them to write Always. And that’s what the public get to know.’

The super cop lit a cigarette and inhaling deeply, reminisced about the events of the previous afternoon. It had been quite a busy one. One that culminated in the fulfillment of his decade-long objective: the elimination of  Afzal Guru; the end of his reign of terror.

The smile broadened. Everything had worked according to plan. The laying of the trap, the lowering of the bait, the lure, and the fall.

Everything except…

Inspector Sharma swatted an imaginary fly from across his face as if he were brushing away all uncomfortable thoughts.

What’s life without some compromises, without a little bit of skullduggery? . You win some; you lose some.

After what seemed an eternity, Inspector Sharma got up from his chair and stepped of his office at the Crime Branch headquarters.

“Bring the jeep. I am going home”

Even the most hardworking of cops need a break.

It was time he surprised his wife; time he took her out for a movie, and then possibly, a quiet dinner at Sagar Ratna.
‘She would love the ambiance there, also their delectable hot piping dosas,’ he mumbled to himself as the vehicle sliced through the evening traffic.

DIGGING ABOUT

PHOTO PROMPT © Connie Gayer

By Neel Anil Panicker

Hey, so this is what I do nowadays ever since I bid adieu to the artsy world of crime solving.

I mean look at me; furrowing and ploughing my way through knee length dirt and slush, spending whole afternoons and the better part of evenings digging and baling out huge tracts of earth, all in the vain hope that some ferns and fronds bloom and brighten up the dreary environs  that encase my post-retired existence.

Hey, I just stomped on something. It’s a man’s foot.  A man’s foot? In my garden? Someone’s hell bent on plucking me out of retirement.

ALWAYS ON A LEASH

 

By Neel Anil Panicker

The thieves took everything except the dog. Probably, they thought, whoever they were, what harm were an old ever wheezing half blind apology of a dog who could barely walk on half a limb.

But then the band of highway robbers who climbed the ten foot high wired fence after cutting off the power supply and putting to sleep the four guards stationed round the clock at the perimeters of the acre-long estate showed that they were after all just human and could be outwitted by a mere four legged doddering German Shepherd who had long passed his  expiry date.

Or, how else could one account for the fact that the entire gang, the half a dozen who committed the midnight heist and made off with the booty that included among others a couple of rare paintings, a steel trunk that contained gold and silver artefacts, and four bespoke limited edition watches, each worth at least a million dollars, was behind bars within 24 hours of the crime?

 “Those Picassos were the rarest of the rare. But that’s besides the point. What’s more important is that Tiger’s instincts are still top class, what say, my dear lady?”

Duchess Mary Margaret of  Lancashire looked admiringly at her husband before replying, “Tiger’s instincts plus yours. So thoughtful of you to plant that micro chip camera onto to Tiger’s neck belt.”

BLACK BEAUTY

By Neel Anil Panicker

Black is beautiful.

Black is pure pearl__ossidified, solidified, petrified to perfection emerging after thousands of years of penance from the earth’s belly, hissing, glistening, and illuminating all of mankind with its sheer magical brilliance.

Black is velvety, curling and embracing and reaching hidden chambers of your heart, unlocking secret still born desires, and reaching out to places and people so wrongly misconstrued as unreachable.

Black is when you look into the eyes of your lover and see not the whites but a pool of water ringed with pain and sorrow and grief and bereavement and all other words that tug at your heart and dip and bale and scrape out the last remnants of joy and happiness, leaving you dangling in a gravity-less mid-air suspension, your body a waste, your mind even more.

Black is the colour of her lustrous hair, a long, endless ink of total darkness and your fingers slipping in and out of its strands, tying and untying the umpteen knots that bind your soul to hers.

Black is what envelops you when she opens her arms and you close your eyes and your breaths become one while you side, slide and collide even as your bodies merge and submerge, swimming in the high tide of noon’s unbridled desires.

It may not be as black and white as it seems but BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL.
