Her husband Kuruvila Mathew is informed, he flies from UAE to India for the identification. He watches all the CCTV footage after he gets to know that all the money in his account has been transferred 30 minutes before her death. He finds a man in the video, spending lot of time with his wife in their house. Kuruvila calls Raghu and tries to inform, but it was too late. Kuruvila reaches Karwar to find out all three are dead.

Ananda Raman confesses that he has no knowledge of why John is doing this. Later that day, Ananda Raman sees John following Kuruvila, and he also follows. All three reach Kuruvila’s house. John asks Kuruvila to confess what he knows.
Kuruvila shares that, during the recession both Kuruvila and Raghu with their families were to be deported, when Anna’s father saw them in the high commission and helped them to arrange the visa. Both families did not want to go out of UAE, they were paranoid about the fact to return to India and do what for their living. They were jealous on Anna’s family of how rich they were and how sophisticated they were. That’s when they planned to murder the whole family after looting their money.
John told that the family killed by Kuruvila and the others was his wife, her father, mother and four infants. Kuruvila and his wife threatened Anna’s father to transfer the money and asked them to board the car. Once all of them boarded, they filled the car with carbon monoxide and killed them. They escaped with more than 35 million.
When this news reached John who was in Assam for a project, he travelled back and started digging as the money went missing. He was devastated to see his infants in the mortuary. He has not even met them due to his tight deadline in the project. Hence he traced all the clues, tracked each one of them and took revenge for what was done to his family. He befriended Raghu’s daughter over Facebook and earned her trust, meanwhile kept meeting Kuruvila’s wife, impressed her, gained her trust and made her transfer the money, after which he killed her in the car, by suffocating her with John’s hand, seen him wearing a glove and covers the murder by making the car filled with carbon monoxide, to disguise the murder, making it seem like an accident.
Next was Raghu’s family at Karwar, now Kuruvila. He makes him drink poison. He falls down, dead from the chair he was sitting on after drinking. Now he holds his leg and tells, you are finished John. John tells Ananda Raman that he has been the witness as the Anna family car accident case was brainstormed in Ananda Raman’s channel in UAE, where he gave a verdict as accident. Kuruvila’s wife indirectly paid him to give such verdict.
Kuruvila livecasted this whole thing in Facebook from his CCTV. The case was dismissed, after a few years. Ananda Raman, is a book writer now, he is nominated for his book Paid news is paid murder. He thanks John for all his support and guidance in another train journey.
