Milind Rege, a 28 year old man, works in a private firm in Bengaluru. An anonymous letter to the General Manager of the firm, Devendra Parthasarthy, turns life upside down for Milind Rege. The letter states that Milind Rege is not what he is, but a criminal named Jai Kumar Prasad, who was convicted in a rape case, and had jumped parole while serving his sentence 8 years back. In February 2005, Jai Kumar Prasad, an MBA student, accompanied his friend Alice Smith to Waghai near Saputara for her research work in Warli paintings. One night, under the influence of alcohol, Jai forced himself physically on Alice. Alice reported the matter to her uncle back home and through the high commission in Delhi, the case was taken up by the police, and Jai was arrested. Jai's father, Narayan Prasad, a very senior government official in Kolkata moved heaven and earth to save his son but Alice stood her ground and accused Jai of physically assaulting and raping her. Jai was sentenced to seven years rigorous imprisonment but managed to get parole after spending a few months in jail. Jai never returned to jail and remained untraceable since then. And now Milind Rege who is accused of being Jai Kumar Prasad is also absconding, hiding somewhere, out of the reach of the law enforcing authorities. Narayan Prasad, Jai Kumar's father, tells the Kolkata police that he has no idea of the whereabouts of his son Jai Kumar after he jumped parole. In the meantime, the Kolkata police comes across a fact that Jai Kumar was close to his sister Swati. In fact, Swati had made several attempts to persuade Alice to take back the case against Jai Kumar Prasad. Is Swati involved in helping Jai Kumar jump parole, and help him become Milind Rege. Find out the shocking details in this episode.
Crime Patrol coming back in its 4th season attempts to bring stories of crime happening all around the country. Crimes that tell us, we need to be careful, we need to be watchful. Crimes that tell us lives could have been saved.Every crime we hear of, either warns us to be careful or scares us, it could happen to us. Every crime ignites a feeling, "It should not have happened".Would knowing the "Why" behind a crime, help in stopping a crime from happening?"I don't like the way he looks at me", "I don't like the way he/she is behaving", "I think he/she is out of his/her mind", "I think he/she has gone crazy". That gaze, that quirky smile, that persistent stare which unnerves. It is difficult to understand the intentions but the hints are there.In
a house a husband and wife argue, fight. A vessel comes flying, a glass breaks. Husband is angry and the wife is upset. That hatred, that ego. The distance that keeps growing. It is difficult to comprehend the damage, but the cracks are there.Feelings... expressions. Misunderstood, unresolved callings of the heart. The cracks are there. Too wide to be missed. Yet when the heart takes over the mind, the outcome is a mindless tragedy.Crime Patrol- Dastak will attempt to look at the signs, the signals that are always there before these mindless crimes are committed. Instincts/Feelings/Signals that so often tell us that not everything is normal. May be, that signal/feeling/instinct is just not enough to believe it could result in a crime. Unfortunately after the crime is committed, those same signals come haunting.
