CBI 5: The Brain Plotline
The story opens with a C.B.I. agent attending a class for a new group of I.P.S. officers. The C.B.I. officer decided to use a case study of a case that left them perplexed in order to teach them a lesson about the unforeseen events they may encounter while serving on the force. He presents an overview of the case of the basket killings and describes it in great detail. Numerous persons were killed in this instance, yet the killings were classified as natural deaths. The students paid close attention and used the case study to learn more about their futures.
Why Did D.Y.S.P. Sathyadas Help The CBI?
Both the C.B.I. and the Kerala Police found the Basket Killings case to be exceedingly puzzling. Minister Samad was the first to pass away, then his doctor, Dr. Venu, a free-lance journalist named Bhasuran, a policeman named Josemon, and a sand contractor named Sam. According to autopsy results following Minister Samad’s passing, a heart attack caused his natural death. Bhasuran, however, had voiced concerns regarding the death and suspected foul play. The media began focusing on the matter and raising questions after the deaths of the doctor and Bhasuran. The killing of Josemon was the last straw. Due to a lack of time, the Keralan police, under the direction of D.Y.S.P. Sathyadas, decided to follow up on a tip regarding Sam, a sand contractor. Sam, according to Sathyadas, was the cause of Josemon’s demise. To spare his friend Subhash, a different sand contractor, he made sure Sam was solely to blame.
Sathyadas was a corrupt official who dealt with bribery on a regular basis. He hated the C.B.I., though, and disliked the way they took over all of their intriguing cases. When he moved the case to the C.B.I., he simply delivered them minute details of Josemon’s case and disappeared the pieces of evidence. Sathyadas’ wife, Advocate Pratibha, had referred the case to the C.B.I. after Sathyadas became irate and then determined about not cooperating with the C.B.I. Sathyadas then stole the evidence.
The real driving force behind Pratibha’s choice was revealed by the C.B.I. She was adamant that they wouldn’t win the lawsuit and wished for them to lose. Her relationship with Sam was another factor in this decision. There would be a major fight at home if her husband Sathyadas found out about the affair. Due to her turning over the case to the C.B.I., there was already tension between them.
She was charged with killing Josemon by the C.B.I. after they learned of her relationship with Sam. Pratibha, who was out of town at the time the incident occurred, refuted it with evidence. She still wanted the C.B.I. to fail despite the fact that her affair had come to light. When Sathyadas learned about the scandal, he understood that the C.B.I. had made no recent progress in the case. He advised them to continue looking into Sam’s shady guesthouse, which was close to the scene of Josemon’s murder. He had a change of heart and gave Sethu the instructions to make the discovery.
I. G. Unnithan Caught, Why?
After Paul Meyjo, who used several names, was apprehended by Sethu and his squad, things started to go south for Unnithan. All of the homicides have a connection to Meyjo. Ground-breaking evidence was the pen drive he was wearing around his neck. Meyjo had a great defence the first time they caught him, so they had to let him go. The two passengers who had missed the aircraft Minister Samad was on when he breathed his last breath were connected with it because to the piece of paper that Meyjo had left behind. They understood that Meyjo had been hired to murder Susan George, one of the passengers.
Meyjo was a genius, but he applied his intelligence improperly. He created software that could trick pacemakers into stopping the heart while making it appear as though the person had died naturally. He tracked Susan as he headed off to finish his task. Dr. Venu had implanted a pacemaker in her, and he had begun to hack into it. He was ready to kill her. However, the C.B.I. showed up just in time, catching him in the act and preventing him from fleeing. They eventually learned the reason why Susan was killed. The C.B.I. was completely baffled about the cause and the mastermind prior to this. However, after hearing Susan, they recognised the mastermind and understood the motivation, but they were unable to link him to Paul Meyjo.
CBI 5: The Brain Ending Explained The Motive Behind Unnithan s Kills.
I.G., the ex-husband of Susan Due to Unnithan’s insanity and paranoia, he hired a contract killer to kill her following their divorce. He had a lot of mistrust for her, and in his deranged mind, he often questioned her commitment. This made him torture and harass her due to his own paranoia, and after divorcing her, he wanted to kill her. He contacted Sam, his sand contractor, and met Paul Meyjo through him. He had denied knowing Paul Meyjo. However, the piece of paper he had torn and handed to Meyjo to make sure he didn t miss his target again was his downfall. However, he had not mentioned anything about Susan to Paul due to which Minister Samad, who also had a pacemaker installed by Dr. Venu was killed. The others were simply dealt with because they came too close to the truth.
I.G. Unnithan had grown overconfident in how he had taken care of his trails. This overconfidence served as his downfall. He had helped the C.B.I. and was sure that the investigation would not lead back to him. He had forgotten to take care of the strong evidence that he thought was of no consequence. According to Freud, this behavior stems from the guilt of his criminal activities. He had the tendency to brag and was ecstatic that neither the police force nor the C.B.I. could trace the killings back to him. Some subconscious part of him wanted to get caught and had been working toward it. He had not planned for the murder he had committed; he simply wanted to kill his wife and was sure that it would not be traced back to him. However, the murders had started to take a toll on his conscience, and his subconscious screamed for help. The entire time he helped the C.B.I., unconsciously, he was pushing them toward his trail, begging them to help. Criminal psychology points to this behavior as a guilty conscience and unchecked mental issues that give rise to more illegal activities as a call for help. Instances of criminals bragging about their kills and robberies before they are apprehended are due to a pang of subconscious guilt. I.G. Unnithan, similarly, had forgotten to take care of the newspaper from which he had provided the torn page to Meyjo as a means to identify Susan.
This case served as an example to the new batch of I.P.S. officers to remain calm while solving cases that d test their patience and resolve. They might come across unexpected betrayals that might crush their spirits, but they have to keep a calm mind and power through to finish their job and also help their conscience.
