On the face of it, a straightforward, open-and-shut case, but it may not reveal the true story behind the sensational murder attempt on Pramod Mahajan. Ironically, Pramod himself determined this even as he was being wheeled into emergency surgery on that fateful morning. Profusely bleeding but mentally agile, he told his brother-in-law and former Maharashtra home minister Gopinath Munde: take care of Pravin.

In fact, the understanding on the first day itself was that Mahajan’s recovery could help the police determine the exact contours of the case, that it made sense to wait for his recovery. It helped that Mahajan counted NCP’s Sharad Pawar among his closest friends in Maharashtra. Pawar’s chosen man, R.R. Patil, heads the home ministry in Maharashtra. Sources say that the police were, indeed, given a free hand to deal with the case, so free that the victim could possibly have a say in framing of the case. In fact, the way the charges will be pressed against Pravin would depend on whether Pramod survived the attack or succumbed to it.
