Many who had no connection with the rivalries of Joshi and his victim, lose their lives in the resultant violence caused a corporate attempt to scare the survivors into believing that Joshi is part of a "foreign hand" of bullies. Joshi meets Ajay and Ria, and confesses to them the truth behind the whole incident.
It seems that Joshi's teenage daughter died because of a brutal rape by the man whom he later slays. Revealing while "on camera" that this man and his partners have been destroying everything in pursuit of their goals, Joshi declares that he killed the man in revenge, almost without thinking. "If that is terrorism, I'm a terrorist", he concludes.
Later, Joshi is put into prison and sentenced to death. On the day of his execution, the reporters lead a silent march, flying the national flag of India, to find Joshi and make the truth public. He is freed, and justice is secured.
