DISSOLVE TO ON HIGH SEA- ABOUT 3 PM, 24/11 The hot sun is glistening on the blue ocean waters. The closeup of a trawler’s bow chopping the rough sea - it rises and falls as it hits the waves, making a loud splashing sound. From a long shot the medium sized wooden fishing trawler MV Kuber with Registration Number PBR 2342 is seen tossing as it makes it way ahead. The sputtering sound of the diesel engine can be heard. CUT TO THE DECK ON THE ROCKING TRAWLER. In front of the wheel cabin towards the bow, the wooden deck has a drum winch two big cylinder cable crank, a black sintex water tank, two blue plastic drums and some aluminum cooking vessels - on the lid of the fish hold.

The Captain is a veteran sailor and fisherman Amar Singh Solanki - short and of solid stature, dusky skin, flat nose and slightly oblique eyes. Solanki is wearing, blue short pants a grey coat over a yellow T-shirt, smoking a beedi whilst sitting on a plastic drum. He is talking to three of his crewmen who are mending the nets on the deck - Mukesh Arjun Rathod from Una (youngest 21 years old), Balwant Prabhu (oldest aged 45), Nathu Nanu Rathod (age 23) from Vasi Borsi village of Navsari. CUT TO INSIDE THE CABIN The fourth crew member Ramesh Nagji (36 years old), fisherman from Simasi village of Junagadh is in the cabin room on the steering wheel. All are wearing some type of cardigan to protect against the chilling sea breeze. The cabin is fitted with a high frequency wireless radio and fish finder equipment. The radio goes on & off with vague gabbling sounds. The boat does not have a Global Positioning System (GPS). CUT TO ON DECK V/O Of Rakesh Maria RAKESH MARIA 26 thareek ko, Solanki naam ka ek machuaara, apne char sathiyo ke saath, lal pari naam ki nayab machli jo sirf gehere samundar main pai jati hai...uske talash main kafi door tak nial gaya tha...

Ramesh Nagji walks out of the cabin onto the deck, he is in a full-sleeves T-shirt and bermuda pants, and approaches Solanki. RAMESH NAGJI TO SOLANKI Amar mujhe lagta hai hum Kori Bunder par kar chuke hai, Pakistani pani main bhi ho sakte hain. SOLANKI Nai yaar, mujhe nai lagta saala yelaal pari ka bhi koi thikana nai.

Suddenly at a distance Solanki faintly spots the main mast of a larger ship. SOLANKI ye petroling boat tho nahi...nahi petrol nahi koi trawler lagti hai... Three of his men gaze at the direction in which Solanki is looking. (CONTINUED)

Ramesh Nangji and the others rush towards Solanki, he takes the binoculars and looks at the approaching vessel. Ramesh and others have panic looks. Solanki is focusing on the approaching vessel, his expressions change slowly. The engine starts sputtering loudly. Solanki spots some people, one holding an upright mast with a white flag hoisted on it - a sign of distress and call for help among seafarers...Ramesh nods his head. CUT TO SOLANKI Ee Ramesh... koi problem lagti hai baot ghuma le jaldi... KUBER IS CLOSE TO AL-HUSSAINI Kuber is slowly approaching the bigger vessel (It’s a medium sized vessel - it’s deck is about above Kuber’s deck) Solanki and the three others are standing on the front edge of the bow holding the docking line - the thick rope going up the mast for support - Ramesh is in the cabin at the wheels and looking out of the open glass window. Solanki looks through the binoculars and spots the name of the vessel written on the bow - Al-Hussaini. The two men with long beards and skull caps are now clearly visible on the deck of the big vessel, one of them is still waving the white flag. Kuber reaches very close to Al-Hussaini and jeers to its side and slowly halts as the rubber tyres tied on the edge crash against each other. Solanki looks up from his deck towards the vessel in front of him. He spots the two sailors still standing there. SOLANKI Salaam... SAILOR 1 walekum salam... SOLANKI kya hua ? SAILOR 1 humara engine belt tut gaya hai...thoda madat karo.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED: SOLANKI Kaha se ho bhai? SAILOR 2 Karachi se, transport trawler hai humari, kharab mausam ki wajah se yaha pahunch gaye...madad karo. Sailor 2 walks up Kuber’s deck and stands in front of Solanki.

Sailor 1 is carrying a piece of what looked like a leather belt fastened on his back. Once they are down on Kuber, they look around the boat and then look at all the five Indian crew. SAILOR 1 (LOOKING AROUND) Kitne log ho tum? SOLANKI panch log hain hum. SAILOR 1 aur koi hai..? SOLANKI Nahi... Suddenly one of the two sailors rushes ahead near the cabin, when the other sailor suddenly whisks out an imported hand gun which he had concealed in his jacket. He fires a round in the air and then holds the gun on Solanki’s temple. All the crew are flabbergasted and shocked. On hearing the shot, the other sailor also removes his gun and comes rushing out and pushes around the other four to round them up on one side of the deck. SHAHID GHAFOOR Ruko... Solanki and his men are startled and shocked by the sudden assault. They raise their hands up in the air in fear. Solanki though very scared tries to muster courage and speaks to his captor. Without a seconds thought, the sailor hits him hard on his head, then he drags him to the edge of one side and kicks him hard. Solanki winces, he is forced to crouch in pain. Meanwhile the other sailors drag the remaining four Kuber crew behind Solanki and make them all hunker down on the wooden floor. They are all trembling with fear. Nathu is almost in tears. As he is crouched Solanki raises his hands in trepidation. (CONTINUED)

He kicks Solanki hard on his stomach and points the gun on him. Solanki flinches and cries out. The sailor kicks him again. With folded hands, Solanki tries to speak.

SOLANKI hum sirf machuare hain sahab....sahab...sahab....hum tho machuare hain sab...sahab...chaiye tho humara id check karlo.... As they are talking couple of more men come on Kuber, all of them are carrying automatic hand guns and radio sets. One among them is the captain of Al-Hussaini Shahid Ghafoor and his subordinate Abdul Rehman. Both of them inspect the vessel, the cabin room, the engine room and return to the place where the two captors are standing. Sailor 1 separates Solanki from his men and pushes him inside the cabin and makes him crouch down in the small space. The others beat up the remaining crew and keep them pinned down on the deck. SHAHID GHAFOOR Bulale. SAILOR 2 Ajaao We se Kasab emerge from the boat and walk towards Kuber, one by one his 9 other accomplices walk up from Al-Hussaini’s deck on to Kuber. Kasab walks upto near Kuber’s cabin, he puts his bag pack on the deck - turns and sees Solanki cowered on an edge. A thick stream of blood is flowing down his temple - injured due to the kicking. Their eyes meet - Kasab sees his contorted face and the pain in the eyes; he grimaces - Kasab (CONTINUED)

is encountering his first victim - just then he senses the approach of his colleague Imran - his facial expression changes and he looks at Solanki with disgust for a moment, he then looks up. Ismail is overlooking the transfer of other consignments. The boys then start to transport their luggage and parcels onto Kuber. His people help unload the things, they unwind the rope which is then pulled up. Finally all the things are in place and Shahid Ghafoor signals his men to transport Kuber’s crew to Al-Hussaini. CUT TO ON DECK Sailor 1 rounds up Kuber’s crew and starts pushing them towards Al-Hussaini.

Ghafoor then signals his men to get back on Al-Hussaini. Every one embraces each other, as they start to go up the ladder. Shahid Ghafoor reaches for another phone (Its a Hughes brand satellite phone which looks like a normal cell phone. Abdul points out the cabin to the boys, then he escorts Ismail first to where Solanki is sitting crouched on his knees, he first kicks him and pulls him up, Solanki stands with folded hands, blood still dripping in droplets from his jaw.

Abdul Rehman hits Solanki hard and he winces in pain. The radio gabbles vaguely. DISSOLVE TO THE CHIMNEY OF AL-HUSSAINI AMIDST THE ENGINE NOISE THE CHIMNEY GIVES OUT HUGE SMOKE..both the boats are opposite to each other at their rears. The crew of Al-Hussaini are seen on the deck looking out at Kuber. No one waves. When the engine makes another big sound, Ghafoor raises the thumbs up sign. Down below Ismail is seen reciprocating with thumbs up. THE TWO BOATS ARE SEEN GOING IN OPPOSITE DIRECTIONS AS THE SUN BLAZES HARD. CUT TO ON BOARD KUBER Three boys including Ismail are in the cabin, Solanki is looking at them. The rest seven including Kasab are outside on the deck. Ismail and his boys are busy unloading the things from the big parcel. While others unload the supplies, Ismail removes the sat phones and the GPS equipments, (GARMIN brand global positioning system) he removes the batteries which have been separately packed in plastic wrappers and switches them on. They blink on with the green back light. He also removes a diary in which there are some instructions jotted down on single line pages in (CONTINUED)

Urdu. He looks at the pages and reads the instructions that explain the setting of locations on the GPS. Does some configuration their location appears on the screen: 24.16.36 N and 67.02.04 E he smiles. Something blares on Kuber’s radio. Ismail is irritated, he looks up on the equipment, gets out and pulls out the two power supplying wires jutting from behind the radio. The radio goes dead. Then looks at his diary and does some more settings and checks the WAY POINTS. Suddenly the sat phone blinks there is a call. ISMAIL (ON PHONE) as Salam Walekum Bhaijaan. SHAHID GHAFOOR waalekum salam... ISMAIL baraf pighal rahi hai... SHAHID GHAFOOR saaman ka kya kiya. ISMAIL (ON PHONE) set kar liya hai, course pe hain, aur ab allotment kar deta hoon Solanki is tryig to pay attention. SHAHID GHAFOOR Coast se 60-80 nautical miles (NM) maintain karna... ISMAIL haanji... SHAHID GHAFOOR raste me dost log mil sakte hai, dhayan se. ISMAIL haan ji...Khuda hafiz bhai... SHAHID GHAFOOR Khuda Haafiz.... Outside, Kasab is near the bow, he is slightly morose looking out at the sea ahead, suddenly he spots a few seagulls appearing above the boat. He looks up and is surprised to see a flock of birds cheeping as they keep pace with the fast moving boat. The expression on his face changes and he smiles -

CUT TO INSIDE THE CABIN Solanki watches all the activity with rapt attention, he is totally confused as much he is scared? CUT TO NEAR THE ENGINE ROOM Nine boys are checking out their respective bags - Like everybody Kasab removes his AK 47 assault rifle. Then he checks his Glock and does the same. Finally every one picks up the ammunition, food supplies and cloths. All the boys then help open a large wooden crate and slowly remove out a huge rubber roll. They take it out on the deck and break open the fasteners and unroll a huge rubber raft. All the boys get down to work. In a while they have assembled the yellow rubber raft inflating it and placing the wooden panels. They also pull out the Yamaha motor and attach it to the end of the rubber dinghy. Once they are done Ismail opens a bag of brand new clothes. Ismail passed on a plastic bag to Ajmal and then proceeds to pass on the other bags to each of the boys. Ajmal Kasab tears open his parcel of clothes and checks out the T-Shirt. The boys walk out of the cabin. Ajmal wears a deep blue, two-in-one rib crew neck tee shirt with a designer tag ’VERSAC’ printed in bold white right in the middle. The t-shirt has a brown colored attached long sleeves which Kasab pulls up to his elbow. The crisp off-white ivory colored cargo pants he wore had several large pockets on either sides. The footwear was a pair of laced brown sports shoes. One by one the 10 boys come onto the deck. Far in the sky the sun is slowly moving down, Ismail looks at the Sat phone. ISMAIL Engine band kardo... CUT TO

CUT TO ON DECK ISMAIL (CHECKING HIS GPS) Bhai Bhandarkar Machimar Colony se lagbhag gyara kilometer dur hai. ab rubber niche utaardo. Ismail’s cell phone vibrates again, he picks its up. It’s one of the handlers Yusuf Muzammil from Karachi. ISMAIL (ON PHONE) Baraf pighal gai hai, SHAHID GHAFOOR (ON PHONE) Insha allah.hume apne bakre kha liye...tum bhi apne khaalo. ISMAIL Tandel ko riha kardo... INSIDE THE CABIN Fahadullah enters the cabin and picks Solanki up. Solanki gathers the last bit of strength in him and rises slowly. Fahadullah and Babar then drag him down the engine room. Solanki realizes that something is going to happen, he starts pleading. The two boys do not speak as they virtually drag him down. CUT TO INSIDE THE ENGINE ROOM SOLANKI (CRYING) nai nai beta nai... dekho hum mumbai pahoch gaye na... tumhara kaam thik se ho gaya na... beta meharbani karo... Mujhe chhodo jane do mujhe,chhod do mujhe dekho... mere bhi do ladke hain beta tumhare umarke tumhre jaise dikhte hain beta..

Solanki does not complete his line. He has not seen Fahadullah who from his jacket pulls out a sharp knife, with his left hand. Fahadullah suddenly grabs Solanki’s hair from behind, and very swiftly he runs the sharp edge of the knife on Solanki’s bare neck. In one go he slices the neck from his ear to ear through Solanki’s Adam’s apple, even as he kept on holding his hair tight to keep the head still. A spray of pinkish red warm blood turning into a deeper shade splashes across Imran’s face. Imran wipes it off with his hand. Solanki does not scream, but lets out a sharp high whining sound followed by deep gurgling as his blood chokes his wind pipe hastening his death. Fahadullah hold Solanki’s head hard by his hair till his body turns cold and lifeless, even as Ajmal looks on, and leave him. Solanki falls face down on the wooden floor. There is hectic activity as the boys lower their bag packs one by one on to the raft. Hafiz secures them below and arranges them on the raft even as the waters start getting choppy. It rocks Kuber too. It starts to get dusky as sun is slowly turnning reddish orange as it begins its descend on the western horizon in the Arabian Sea. The clouds at the skyline looks stunning in the impressive blood red sunset across the coast of Mumbai city. The sea which had been reasonably calm so far, starts to turn choppy due to the rising high tide. dissolve to night One by one the boys who are wearing the life jackets start descending on the raft. Fahadullah is the third last to start getting down - Nasir Ahmed and finally the mission leader Ismail Khan. CUT TO ON BOARD THE RAFT As they entered the Gulf of Back Bay, Mumbai’s coastline starts to come alive, and they can see the street and building lights gleaming like bright stars. Referring the GPS, Ismail navigates the boat the towards the right and heads towards the break waters near Cuffe Parade. They can now clearly see the high rise buildings. Ismail sees them. DISSOLVE TO Faint puttering of the dinghy motors can be heard.

Popular Hindi movie song "Kajra Re" is playing on the radio. As the taxi starts moving, the driver begins humming along the song playing on this deck. This irritates Ismail who then asks him to switch off the radio. ISMAIL Gaana band karo. The driver, slightly disappointed, gives him a sideways look. DRIVER arre acha gana hai sahab...hit hai... Ismail gives him a look. DRIVER ab kya hai na Passenger tho humara bhagwan hota hai...jo bole wo karna padta hai...

CUT TO LOWER FLOOR Date is climbing up the floors slowly with his armed men following him closely; very cautiously he reaches the floors up and finally reaches the second floor, where he stumbles upon the body of the old man who had been killed by Kasab.

LANE BEHIND THE HOSPITAL There is a build up of several dozen police men and several police vehicles. A senior police officer, tall and well built, with green military helmet and wearing bullet proof jacket, hurriedly walks in the lane. He is holding an automatic Glock pistol ready in his right hand. He was followed by two other policemen of his personal escort team, his operator and orderly. Joint CP (ATS), Hemant Karkare is leading the small team, his orderly Akhtar Shaikh, operator Nitin Matane, his body guards and a couple of more police men who had either a pistol or a .303 rifles follow him.

CUT TO FLOOR BELOW THE SECOND FLOOR The cops are jolted by the shooting, they run to take cover. CUT TO SECOND FLOOR Even as Date is preparing his strategy, he sees that that the Doctor with his hands up is pushed on the landing with great force. Right behind him Ismail is holding his gun across his shoulder and starts firing indiscriminately. Date is alerted with the sudden movement, he rushes ahead with his 9 mm pistol and aimed to shoot but realizes that the Doctor in his while apron is a staff and resists from shooting. Several of his men who had prepared to shoot are hit as they scramble to hide. Date sees that the terrorists have a hostage and any shooting can be dangerous. Even as he is hiding he takes the mike again and from his hiding he makes the announcement. Ismail who is following the doctor behind shouts out. (CONTINUED)

He points out his gun and fires indiscriminately all around. There is heavy shelling all around. Date peeps out for a second, he is unfazed, even as his men are hit. Meanwhile the Doctor is pushed down by the two terrorists on the ladder and they slowly descend down, Kasab’s gun firmed on his shoulder. Date takes cover, peeps out. As he gets a chance, Date tries to fire at the two but he is not able to take aim as the Doctor is covering the two men. He is clearly frustrated. Ismail who is holding his gun very tightly on the doctor’s shoulder gestures to Kasab who is behind him.

Ajmal, lobs a grenade, it lands near the policemen who were gathering themselves and exploded with another huge bang barely a feet away from Date. The shrapnel splinters tear into several people including Date. They all are injured, Date still tries to gather himself but in the heavy smoke he is not able to see anything. As the two see that the police team is injured, Ismail shoots at the doctor several times who falls down dead. The two jump down the floor towards the stairs and rush down the stairs.

As couple of vans move ahead, one big Eicher police van, escorted by two smaller vans, comes and halts right at the entrance of the building porch. Soon there is a built up of over 100 police men all around, cordoning the big van. The doors of the van open very slowly, about a dozen armed police men peep out, they look around cautiously and one by one they step down, paying attention to every small detail around the compound, their guns in ready, to shoot position.

In swift move a second lot of about a dozen policemen including senior inspectors get down the vehicle and following them we see a kind of mob of policemen alighting from the van, as they step down we see a diminutive Kasab appear on the door, he is being held by two senior CID police men in civil by his shoulder. Though he is wearing the same cloths that he has landed, it is now smeared with several patches of blood, medicine stains etc, the fatigue and injuries on his face is apparent. Kasab is handcuffed, we see both his hands bandaged up to the wrist, there is bandage on his neck, he stands there looking at the structure and the number of policemen and seems to be much unperturbed. The policemen holding him nudge him to get down with a push, as he approaches the steps of the vehicle, Kasab struggles to take a step; we see that he has been chained at the ankles without any footwear. The police men help him step down, Kasab looks down and then again he looks around and for some reason is humored, he tries to smirk at the crowd of cops, but he realizes that every single cop has a raging look at him, as if they would tear him apart if he is left free. The cops on the other hand are literally tensed and some are every angry to look at the terrorist. As he takes a few steps down we see several other cops following Kasab. Kasab steps down on the ground, couple of more CID police men, join his escorts and whisk him towards the entrance, Kasab has an unsteady gait of walking as he struggles to walk with the chains. Almost running, dozens of policemen lead the way up, the small flight of stairs into the complex approaching the grand staircase. Several of them are talking on hand held wireless sets, some informing control room, some informing their seniors of Kasab’s movement. There is a virtual commotion, as senior police officer try to make order of his men who are getting near Kasab, even as the CID men are literally pulling him up the stairs, they try to run up, over a hundred police men follow Kasab being led on the stairs. As he is being led up, Kasab looks around; occasionally he looks at the steps below as he tries to walk with the chains, then he looks up, for a moment he cringes being held by two cops all the time who are guiding him up to the floor.

CUT TO RAKESH MARIA IN THE COMMITTEE ROOM RAKESH MARIA Kasab ko jab miane pehli baar dekha...main hadbada gaya tha ...chaunk gaya tha ...kayii saalon ke apne tajurbe se yeh jaante hue bhi ki zaroori nahi ki koi khatarnaak aadmi khatarnaak dikhe...main phir bhi chaunk gaya,Kasab itna nata sa mujhe yakin nahi hua ki iss bees saal ke launde ne mere shehar mein itni tabaahi machaayi thi...uss smay meri sabse badi mushkil yeh thi...usse mujhse aur mere officers se bachana...hum sabhi usse marna chate the...apne aap pe maine kaaboo rakha aur jald se jald usse se information nikaalne ki koshish karne lagaa. CUT TO CRIME BRANCH, MARIA’S ROOM Maria is leaning against the wall as he sees his special unit men walk in first, as he sees dozens of armed policemen follow in and stand all around the room, after a pause, Kasab is pushed in the room, still held tight by the two officers. Maria looks at the scene in his room, several dozen cops surrounding a diminutive Kasab from all sides, all looking straight at him, but Kasab staring all around and he locks eyes with kasab. Maria just stares at the boy who is hand cuffed, his facial expression change, he stands up with his hands on his waist, there is pin drop silence as Maria pauses and looks at Kasab. With beck of his finger, he orders half of the men to walk out and shut the door. (CONTINUED)

As the men walk out, the rest still standing with arms, one of Maria’s trusted CID officer comes near him and whispers something in Maria’s ears, Maria is not too interested in what the cop has to say, he still stares at Kasab and abruptly walks out of the chair, passing his table, hands still on his waist, he walks near the Kasab. He stands facing Kasab, there is utter silence, huge pause, Kasab looks up to Maria and makes a distorted face. Maria moves behind, all his men are still fixed gazed at him, he looks at a corner of the room and with his fingers he orders Kasab to be pushed towards that corner and made to sit down. Kasab sits down with his face hanging down at his knees. Maria keeps on staring at Kasab when one of him men pull a chair and brings it behind Maria, without even looking at the chair, Maria holds it and sits down, as he is squatting down, Kasab is still looking down. There is pin drop silence. Suddenly the room reverberates with Maria’s soft voice. RAKESH MARIA Naam bol...naam kya hai.. KASAB Ajmal. RAKESH MARIA baap nahi hai... KASAB mohammad ajamal aamir kasab... Kasab suddenly draws back as if he is now feeling the pain of his injuries and his mood totally changes. RAKESH MARIA kahanse aaya... KASAB karachi se... RAKESH MARIA kaise aaya... KASAB dariya main ek hidustani ko padak kiya aur wo hum yeha mumbai tak leke aaya...

CUT TO CRIME BRANCH Handcuffed Kasab is being escorted by over a dozen armed policemen, they walk him through some dimly lit alley and through a small door, they reach a room where Maria is talking to few lawyers and officers. Kasab is shamelessly smiling away even as the people in the room look at him with disgust. The guards escorting him push him down to sit. Kasab sits, while Maria finishes his business with the lawyers and other officers, then he turns towards Kasab and stands in front of him. Kasab looks up to see a huge personality in front of him, he folds his palm. The men salute him and they walks away with Kasab through another door. Maria turns to walk away through the main door. CUT TO EXIT OF CRIME BRANCH Exit of the crime branch building, frantic activity is on, cops are running around arranging for vehicles, some are on walky-talkies, some senior inspectors are shouting out orders. We see a lineup of about a dozen vehicles pulling up on the entrance, with a big van being pulled near the entrance. A team of several dozen armed cops come out of the building, they are in ready to fire position, and they take positions around the entrance of the van looking all around. After a brief pause, more cops come out of the small gate, some get inside the van, someone talks loudly on the walkie-talkie and suddenly we see, Kasab is being rushed out and into the van in very quick and swift moment, he tries to look around, but his head is held tightly and he is pushed inside the van. Maria too gets in the same van. Nearly two dozen cops follow them inside the vans doors are shut. The van moves out of the building along with the convoy of about dozen vehicles on to the roads.

ROAD SCENE WHILE TRAVELING TO MORGUE Inside the van, Kasab is being seated on a long bench alongside a window; he tries to peep out to have a glimpse of the city through a heavily grilled window. Bright sun light falls on his face and he looks out and smiles. Maria sits on a bench opposite to him. The guards and other cops surrounding him look at him with disgust, even as he continues to enjoy the outing and eagerly looks out. Maria reaches out his hand, one cop hands a full face monkey cap to him, Maria gets up goes near kasab and blind folds him. CUT TO MORGUE Kasab is bought inside the Morgue with a blind fold on his eyes, by a few policemen, they feel the stench in the room and are uncomfortable. Once inside the morgue room, while Maria walks ahead and looks at the stretchers kept on the floor, the escort of policemen stands against the wall still holding Kasab very tight, who is visibly perturbed by a strange stink, he has still not paid attention to the people on the stretcher as yet. Maria pulls out the blind fold. RAKESH MARIA innhi ke saaath rehna chata hai na tu....jannat chhod....jahanam ka darwaja bhi khatkhataya hga na innki rooho ne..tho wahan baithe saithaan ne innke gaand par laat mar kar bhaga diya hoga... Suddenly the expression on Kasab’s face change, he tries to concentrate of each of the bodies kept on the stretcher and slowly walking past all the 9 bodies. The expression on his face change into a disgusting gesture and after he has finished the 9th body, he turns, hunkers, falls on his knees and puts his head down very low, then he raises his head straight up and gives out a loud cry which shakes up the entire morgue.
