A Manic Monday Morning
The residents of the Sunshine Apartments woke up to a shocking and terrible incident that dreadful Monday morning. Shalu of the Ruby block one of the many blocks of Sunshine Apartment, was found dead on the floor in front of the carpark. Shalini aka Shalu as she was fondly called was the favourite darling of all of them. She was a perky ,chirpy sweetheart who roamed around the whole apartment spreading her cheer to anybody whom she meets across.
She was the only child of her parents, who loved her dearly. She was hardly 6 years and was excited about the school reopening next week. More than anything she was excited about all the new accessories her parents bought for her to take to school for the fresh new year of her class. She had spoken about it to everybody who gave her ears.
Soon the Police arrived at the crime scene, and confronted the crowd assembled there as to who saw the body first. The security guard came forward to acknowledge the fact that it was in fact he who chanced upon to see the dead body in the wee hours of morning. There was an elderly lady who was sitting near the body wailing out beating her head and chest, saying “Now what will I say to my Son and Daughter in law”, “what face will I show them when they ask about dear Shalu”, she cried out aloud. It didn’t take much brains for the Police to understand that it was the granny of the child. On enquiring they came to know it’s the girl’s father’s mother. And the parents had gone to a neighbouring district for their relative’s marriage. The parents were sent for immediately. The lady police assisted her back to the apartment. Their flat was on the 3rd floor, that is one floor short of the terrace. The forensic team was sent for to carry the body for postmortem. And on arriving, declared to the Police the estimated time of the death as 6 am in the morning. Police started their enquiry around.
