The investigation team is headed by the chief investigating officer, Rithika Xavier IPS (Mamta Mohandas),who is Samuel's sister-in-law. Samuel with his team uncovers that killer is Alphonse Kurian (Giju John), a child psychologist who has a past of murdering his own father when he was a child, and has taken up killing in later life to find peace. He also targets Rithika's family out of delusional convictions. Samuel confirms the evidence that he has on the killer's identity and hears Alphonse's confession while driving.
