Later much like a Netflix show, he conspired with his three friends and forged a death certificate. Then they hired private ambulances which are, by the way, infamous now for ferrying people amidst this lockdown, to transport them back to their home sweet home. However, when the driver produced the death certificate at the check post, they assumed that it would ensure their smooth sail but they were in for a surprise.

However, the policemen were under strict order to test every vehicle with more than two people and with thermal scanning they found a startling ‘body’. The dead body was emitting heat signatures which was not possible! Had it not been for the timely intervention of the police, Din and his conspirators would have had a good laugh for ages. However, just a few kilometres from his residence when the police intercepted the ambulance to screen them for coronavirus, found heat signatures from the supposed dead person.
