Kaurvaki holds the sword with bare hands. I dint bear so many pains and troubles just to see a weak person like you killing Ashoka. She hits Uttar successfully, repeatedly and takes his sword. You come in this world because of a woman. She is someone who gives life. You will today realise what a woman is, what her tapasya, sankalp and power is! She kills him.
Ashoka pulls Sushim behind his horse with a rope as he returns towards the palace. The citizens look on in confusion. All the family members are shocked to see Sushim in this condition. Bindu demands to know the reason of bringing Sushim here like this. Ashoka says I handle internal affairs. I have a right to arrest culprits. This person standing before you is a culprit. Bindu wants him to prove it that he has used his rights rightly. If you misuse them then it wont be good for you. I want everyone to be in the courtroom right away!
In the courtroom, Bindu says it is on you to prove why you shouldn’t be considered a culprit for bringing Sushim in here like a criminal, to justify your stance. Ashoka says I am well aware of my duties. It was just to send out a message that no one is above justice. It is equal for everyone. Whoever tries to become an obstacle in the path of dharma and peace, for the dream of united India, will be punished, be it Sushim only! Charu questions him. how dare you blame my son? Ashoka says pardon me. I am not blaming your son or my brother. I am blaming the person because of whom I lost Gondna. He relates everything that happened after Nirankush escaped from prison. I have been saying it since beginning that it is impossible for Gondna to run his business smoothly till he has some internal help. This person (Sushim) is responsible for it. Siamak is relieved to realise that Ashoka has no clue about Gondna. Bindu asks Sushim if he hit Ashoka. Sushim accepts doing it. Ashoka spoke truth. We did fight. I was about to kill him when Nayak came and helped him. they both took over me then. everything is true but the reason isn’t what he is telling. Facts are same but truth is something else. He turns to Ashoka. If you are right that I am supporting Gondna then it would be that I know him. You have to prove it as well. Do you have any proof to justify it? if you have then present it. I will kill myself right away in the courtroom! Bindu thinks Sushim can say such a big thing when he is innocent. He asks for proof from Ashoka. Ashoka says he cannot get off so easily by acting emotional. Ask him why he followed me when I was trying to catch Gondna. Did he not help Gondna flee? Sushim claps. It was you who helped the biggest enemy of Magadh escape. It was you who helped him escape. I want to show some proofs and facts before you (Bindu) to explain my stance. Bindu allows him.
A few soldiers come in. Sushim questions them about Nirankush escaping from the jail after getting a letter. Who was it from? The soldier says it was sent by Acharya RG. We recovered it after Nirankush escaped. Bindu checks the proofs. Sushim points out that NIrankush was the only medium to reach Gondna. His security was of greatest importance. It couldn’t happen without internal help. The writing is that of my brother. Nirankush dint escape. He was made to flee. Ashoka had full support from Acharya RG. He wants to see Ashoka on the throne after you. Ashoka says I did it as per the plan. We know Nirankush will directly go to Gondna and we planned to catch him then itself. Sushim says ok. Why dint you tell Samrat then? Ashoka dint want to take any risk, knowing well that Gondna’s supporter is in here. Acharya RG adds that he informed Samrat when Ashoka left for jungle. Sushim corrects him. you did so when you came to know I went after Ashoka. You took Samrat in your confidence as you know Samrat will believe Ashoka if he fails in his mission. Mahamatya seconds Sushim. Ashoka dint trust Magadh’s Samrat. Ashoka insists that it wasn’t his wish. I have a right to take decision as I am responsible for internal security. Sushim adds fuel to the fire. Siamak also supports SUshim. Ashoka was scared that NIrankush will tell us his truth. Ashoka is involved with Gondna. Bindu asks Ashoka if he has answer to any of these questions. The fact is same but you seem to be culprit now! DO you have any other proof or logic with which you can prove yourself innocent? Ashoka stands quietly.
Precap: Bindu is about to announce a decision when Uttar asks him to stop. He says I am Gondna and drinks something poisonous. He breathes his last before everyone in the courtroom.
