Kichan and the investigation officer, DYSP Robert Mathew, together catch the culprit - Raj Mohan, Indhu's and Kichan's college senior. He had a very good name in the college campus but was actually the one who called Indhu to his house convincing her that Kichan would arrive there to talk about their fight. He drugs Indhu and rapes her. When she wakes up realising what happened, he tells her that he wasn't home last night and Kichan was the one who raped her.
