As the recording ended with Shafeeq and Ajmal’s arrest, Shashank was both relieved as well as upset. Relieved because his idol was absolutely innocent, and upset because a very dangerous terrorist organization was threatening the security of the whole country. Sunny removed the connection and addressed both Shashank and Govind.

Sunny said, “I have a plan. Just as their spy infiltrated into Indian Army, I am going to get within the terrorist group and leak their secrets.” Shashank and Govind were shocked. Shashank said, ” Sir, it’s a highly risky plan. We can’t afford to lose a genius like you. Isn’t there any other alternative?” Sunny said, “‘I am afraid there’s no choice. My gadgets are responsible for wreaking havoc on my friend and his family. It’s only fair that I should set right things as they were before my inventions. I have a plan. Please do not refuse because the security of entire nation is at stake.” He explained to them his next course of action. The Inspector and SI reluctantly agreed to his plan. After having their tea, Sunny called one of his close friends, Dinesh, an Army officer in New Delhi. He said, ” There’s a mole in your army headquarters who must be passing confidential information to the enemies. I am sending you his pic. Don’t take any action against him right now. To begin with, create fake plans and see if he falls for the ploy. You needn’t court martial him or have him arrested for espionage. His own folks will get him killed to save their skins. Meanwhile, I will be joining their group and keep you updated on their next move.” ” But, ” Dinesh insisted, “This is extremely dangerous. If you get caught, the leader of the terrorist group will have you tortured and beheaded.”

Sunny replied, ” If I had several lives, I would gladly lay them down for the sake of my country. I am not going to allow my years of hard work fall into the wrong hands. In fact, everyone has only seen me as a scientist and a normal human. I am going to assume the form of the terrorist slayers and get them uprooted from Mother India forever. Jai Hind!”

Shashank and Govind looked at him with great admiration and a newfound respect over his true patriotism. Dinesh was very proud of his friend too and replied, ” So be it, dear Sunny. Your wish is my command. First, let’s launch an attack on the first group of terrorists who might head this way.” He promised to stay in touch with his friend. According to the plan, Shashank and Govind handcuffed Sunny and spread the false news of his arrest in connection with the Mumbai murders.

Ahmed who was watching TV, couldn’t control his glee at the success of his evil scheme. He went to meet his pals in a disguise and they were quite excited. They had no idea that it was merely a ploy to plot their downfall.

The next day, Inspector Shashank locked Sunny in the same prison as Shafeeq and Ajmal. Sunny was using the most foul language and winked at Shashank to bear with his tantrums. Sunny yelled, ” You are ungrateful and wretched people. How many times do I have to tell you that I didn’t kill anyone? ” The two scoundrels grinned at his outburst and approached him, ” What’s the matter? Why have you been incarcerated for? ” asked Ajmal.

Sunny wiped a non existent tear from his right eye and said, “I have been accused of killing my friend and his family for money. I didn’t do anything but I have no proof of my innocence. After all the years of my hard work and dedication, this is how my countrymen are repaying me. I have now decided to seek revenge for the injustice meted out to me. How I wish I could get my hands on some weapons and gun down these people! It’s better to get my hands smeared in blood rather than being falsely accused of a crime that I didn’t commit. “

Shafeeq replied, ” Oh, you poor guy! Both of us can help each other. If you help us escape from the prison, we would gladly take you to meet our boss and then we can unleash a reign of terror in this country. What do you say? ” Sunny was lost in thoughts so as not to appear too eager to arouse their suspicion.

” Well, “demanded Ajmal, “‘we haven’t got all day to wait for your answer. Either say yes or languish in this stinking jail.” Sunny appeared sheepish and said, ” Old habits die hard. Can you at least give me some time to think over your proposal? ” The duo nodded and left him alone. Later that night, Sunny didn’t sleep a wink because of the mosquitoes and the baddies’ snoring. The next day, he woke both Ajmal and Shafeeq and said, “Count me in. I have a fantastic plan to escape. You just wait and watch.” He summoned a constable posted outside his cell and winked at him. The constable understood what to do. Sunny faked hypnotism on him and the cop opened the prison door to let out the dangerous inmates. Ajmal and Shafeeq couldn’t believe their luck. Their boss, Ahmed, had failed to rescue them but this man had got them out so easily.

Ajmal took out the cop’s mobile and called his boss as the latter still appeared to be in a trance. He said, ” Boss, we have news for you. The scientist who was arrested is now in our side. He helped us escape from this prison. ‘I think he could be a valuable asset to our group and we can always make him create new gadgets for all of us. What do you say?”

Ahmed was delighted to have another member. He asked Ajmal to bring Sunny to their new hideout in an old rice mill along the Mumbai Pune Highway. Sunny had hidden his gadgets and remote inside a special pouch hidden inside his shirt. Will Sunny be accepted in the group or get caught and killed? Watch out for the next thrilling episode of The Scientist Who Turned Into Monster.
