The Unknown Source

Letter-U-Unknown Source of Evidence

To read the story of the letter T, please click here.

The first team reached the evidential support to suspect a migrant labourer had vanished from the area just after the crime.  That doesn’t fit the logic and rationale based on further evidence that he had the motive or the ability to plan and execute the murder.  

The scene continues from the previous post

Can we disclose the victim’s dairy as a piece of evidence at this time?

Manoj Kovoor accepted the Channel 36 invitation to participate in the panel discussion.  Instead, he was anxious to be part of it as an opportunity to clear the dirty air shrouding the reputation of the first investigation team.  It got just dropped from the scene, and no reasons to qualify that action.  Added to that was the incompetency of those who managed the matter relegated it to non-prominence.

Ninety per cent of the evidence the special investigation team has used in the charge sheet submitted to the trial court came from the sweat of the first team.  One addition is planting a loner suspect, to the dismay of the first team, because it distorted the open course and progress of the murder investigation.  

The possibility of the migrant labourer being the murder suspect undermined the logical and natural progression of the case.  That was the only possible reason why the Special Investigation got hatched.  That was a logical misfit burdening the public’s minds and was getting discussed in various media channels.

The questioning of the victim’s mother halted immediately after the first investigation team got dropped.  She was a high-profile witness in the case.  It was a noted factor.  Why she got dropped remains a mystery to anyone.   

The first team reached the evidential support to suspect a migrant labourer had vanished from the area just after the crime.  That doesn’t fit the logic and rationale based on further evidence that he had the motive or the ability to plan and execute the murder.  

Without the support of any additional evidence, the Special Team made him the lone suspect in the case.  Anything derived out of the situation is that he got planted.  This was the prosecution's intentional creation of a big hole in the entire issue for the real culprits to escape neatly from the scene.

Spend a day with my favourite author

 Spending a day With My Favourite Author The Image is taken from Blog Chatter      I can include a list of authors on my favourites, filter them down to five and then screen them to a final three. The finalists are J M Coetzee, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Trevour Noah.       JM Coetzee is the two times Booker Prize winner for his novels, Life &Times of Michael K (1983) and Disgrace in 1999. The theme of Life and Times of Michael K hadn't made sense to me when I read it for the first time. It was a time when I couldn't analyse creative writing beyond the book's pages and that of a great writer like Coetzee.   The novel unfolds the concerns and the dilemma of Michael K, ugly to look at, beset by life conditions he never comprehends and can't control during the times of a fictional civil war in South Africa. Another reason to be fascinated by the two books is the story settings are places I am living or lived.       Disgrace is a suggestive story about post-apartheid

Things I would Like to Work on in the Month of August

  4Things I would like to work on in August Images from my file using Failing to plan things is planning to fail. During my teaching years, I crammed the idea into my learner's minds and mine. Once I retired, I lapsed into not caring about planning things.   The call to write about four things I like to work on in August came as a wake-up call to renew the habit, and I jumped for it. August, in a biblical sense, is the month of beginning things. In South Africa, August celebrates 'women's Month,' to commemorate a historic march of women of all races made on 9 August 1956 against apartheid.  The month of July got stuffed up with book reviews and Insta Reel creations, things I enjoyed much. The beautiful themes and plot developments of the books reviewed afforded me new perspectives, and I have more queued in my reading list. The IG Reels were a thing of technical adventure, a challenge that made me feel stupid in the initial days, and when I called out 'Eu

Arjun Madhavan - the Protagonist of my up-Coming Thriller-Murder at Thampuran Kotta

A 'no' uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a 'yes' merely uttered to please, or worse to avoid trouble -- Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi A-For Arjun #BlogChatterA2Z The image was taken from Thoroughly excited to reveal the protagonist of my upcoming thriller -Murder at Thampuran Kotta, as part of this year's A2Z marathon-the first of its kind I have ever undertaken. His name is Arjun Madhavan--a familiar name among Malayalam speakers. The first post would suffice to present him before you, not a hectic introduction. Then the remaining twenty-five posts to complete the rest of my novel or up to where they take me. This is my second author endeavour- the first is an e-book titled, Under the Bakula Tree, published on a contemporary woman story and a short read--a sisterhood taking root under the patriarchy is the subtitle.   Three-fourths of the thriller I have covered.  It was a group expedition, I reckon, sailing through unfamili
