Police Calling #SundayPhotoFiction


Come to the police station?”, the voice on the other side of the phone said, “inspector Sharma wants to talk to you.”

Shalini was perplexed. How did her personal number reach a police man?

Who am I talking to?” asked Shalini as she tried to regain her composure, “Who is inspector Sharma? Why does he want to see me, where and when?

I am constable Tambe,” said the main, “inspector Sharma, of the city center police station, wants to ask you a few questions.”


I am Sharma,” a man in plain clothes received Shalini, “ thank you for visitingmay I offer you something to drink?

Why such urgency, inspector?” asked Shalini, “who gave you my number?

How do you know Shyam?” said the inspector with attentive eyes, “how did your number reach him?”

Shyam is a friend; Shyam and me were to attend Sailen’s party,” answered Shalini, “ I could not go. Is Shyam alright?

You know Sailen also!” Sharma commented, without answering Shalini, “why did you not go?

I was busy at my family business,” Shalini felt that her life was being pried open in public view as the inspector persisted “tell me everything about Sailen and Shyam.”
