Delhi Crime Season 1 Recap
Delhi Crime takes inspiration from the 2012 Delhi gang rapes in Munirka. This serial picks up that story right after the events when Deputy Police Commissioner Varitka Chaturvedi gets the task of finding those responsible for the heinous crimes and bringing them to justice. When two victims are found on the roadside, the Deputy Police Commissioner finds that the police force has major flaws, so she rounds up the best people in the department to investigate the culprits. As the investigative work moves on, the crime scene investigation team starts canvassing the bus where the crime took place, and following an evidence trail, they track down the first perpetrator.
But there’s a caveat because the media starts putting out stories against the police, so, faced with pressure, the Police Commissioner decides to push on. After they find blood in the bus, the bus driver confesses that he did it and spills the beans. After his confession, the police team goes after the bus driver’s brother. They canvass the brother’s house and catch the brother and another man with information from the neighbor. Then, they start searching for the fifth assailant.
The Fifth Man
As the police track down the fifth assailant of the Delhi gang rape case, the judicial system begins to pressure the police for their work. This high-profile case, coupled with the media pressure, turns things within the police department sour, and the police team starts to feel the bad taste of judicial meddling. And while the fifth suspect is almost watched, the sixth suspect is nowhere to be found. As the public demands justice, the cops hide those arrested, fearing that an angry mob might take their lives. To worsen the panorama, two of the arrested try to kill themselves.
The cops eventually catch the six suspects on a bus stand. The final suspect is a minor, and the public backlash is massive. The police chastise the demonstrators, and the victim stands in court to give an official account of the events. After that, the final suspect is apprehended in his house. An official inquiry from the government on how the cops managed the case followed, and the Police Commissioner found out that one of the arrested killed himself in jail.
Delhi Crime Season 2 Possible Plot Lines
Delhi Crime Season 2 will consist of another crime story. Showrunner Richie Mehta confirmed this in a press interview. After Netflix greenlit the show for a sophomore season, the police team will return. What we don’t know is which case they will solve next.
