While Kichan himself tries to recover from Indhu's death, he finds himself tangled up in the investigation. Soon, a girl named Kalyani confronts him and reveals that she was the girl who received the SMS from his number and her father died after a marriage alliance got rejected because of the SMS. Kichan explains to her that he wasn't the one who sent it. Kalyani eventually believes him.

Kichan and the investigation officer, DYSP Robert Mathew, together catch the culprit - Raj Mohan, Indhu's and Kichan's college senior. He had a very good name in the college campus but was actually the one who called Indhu to his house convincing her that Kichan would arrive there to talk about their fight. He drugs Indhu and rapes her. When she wakes up realising what happened, he tells her that he wasn't home last night and Kichan was the one who raped her. She believes this and goes to college to confront Kichan but her friend tells her that Kichan was with her in the hospital as her mother fell sick last night.
