Aranyak season 1, episode 7 recap

In the police station, Kasturi asks Bunty for the truth regarding Hotel Bom. In a flashback, Aimee asks Bunty to find Ravi for him. Kanti gave Bunty a “special drink” to give to Aimee — it’s spiked. Kanti asks Aimee if they can dance, but Gagan warns his friend to behave. Kanti dances with her anyway. Gagan and Bunty look on, worried. Nutan rings Bunty, and he’s distracted. In the present, Bunty tells Kasturi that he had no idea the drink given to Aimee was spiked. He also reveals that he and Nutan love each other and frequently meet at the warehouse. Kasturi is understandably emotional and stressed, not knowing that her daughter was intimate with someone, but also linked to this case.

Kasturi asks how his s***n samples matched what was on Aimee. Flashbacks reveal that a group of men kidnaped Bunty; Chotu asked him for a s***n sample and surrender to the police. Chotu also got hold of a sensual video involving Kasturi’s daughter. Kasturi is worried that Nutan’s video will go viral. Meanwhile, Nutan is considering suicide. Her brother rings Kasturi as he can’t get into her room. Angad smashes open the door, and she had nearly hung herself. Kasturi learns her daughter has been blackmailed.

Due to new evidence and a different testimony, Bunty is released.

Angad manages to track an IP address for an online chat that is vital to the case — Angad heads to Kasturi’s house and asks Hari where he was the night Aimee was raped and murdered. Angad reveals to Kasturi that the videos that Nutan received came from her house. The IP address is Hari’s. They ask Hari what he knows about Chotu; flashbacks show that Chotu asked Hari to use the computer without ID.

Angad tells Kasturi that Hari was talking to a woman called “Blue Rose” on the internet. He’s having an emotional affair with a woman online. Hari tells Kasturi that this woman listens to him, and he’s been speaking to her for seven years. He states they only meet online, and he isn’t sure if he loves her. He admits he doesn’t love Kasturi anymore. This marriage feels over.

Kasturi approaches the doctor that took the s***n sample from Bunty. He makes her aware the original samples were removed, but he has a copy of the results. When they see the sample, it’s not linked to Kanti — Angad does not believe Kanti or Gagan are telling the truth, so they interrogate them. Kanti tells his story about how he danced with Aimee and had a drink, but then Aimee suddenly wanted to meet someone else; he took her to the hotel room he booked, and she fell on the floor unconscious. Gagan is worried that she will be found in the room. Gagan disputes the story and claims he never went upstairs with Kanti and had no idea what happened. Kanti is furious that his friend has derailed his story. Kasturi asks the doctor to take Gagan’s s***n sample.

The ending

The whole case is tangled, but Kasturi thinks they do not understand something. Angad has another theory — could Mahadev be the serial killer, as he was the one that took Kasturi to the body in the forest.

As the episode ends, Kasturi walks through the forest — she gets a call from the wife of Govind; she tells her to arrest her husband.

It’s pretty apparent that this series could have been shortened — the story is going around in circles.
