One fine day, while the team is prepping with special arms to hunt down Vedha, the notorious gangster walks into the police station and surrender himself to the police, with the intention of coming clean. But is that Vedha’s true intention, or does he have something more sinister in mind?

    Short Summary

    The Mumbai police have a major problem with organized crime. And while it is generally agreed that the Indian courts dispense real justice, they are notoriously very slow about it. So some or many, if not all, officers have adopted the strategy of shooting suspects dead and claiming that it was in self-defence or done while the suspect was attempting to flee. Those officers are encounter specialists.

    Wow! I've heard some misleading job titles before but "encounter specialist" for "murderer" is a new one on me!
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Triple wow!
    What a horrible euphemism.

    The nearest I can think of is shoot to kill.
