The first season of this International Emmy Award-winning series, ranking in the Top 10 globally in 8 countries is based on a horrifying real-life murder that shocked both India and the entire world. After resolving the gang-rape murder case in Season 1, DCP Vartika Chaturvedi (Shefali Shah) and her comrades take viewers on a chilling, roller-coaster ride through the serpentine by-lines of a concrete jungle in search of criminals who have left behind a number of bodies bludgeoned to death in Season 2.
