Reporter (R): Amit? Amit?
Amit (A): Come here.
R: Assalaam alaykum.
Man (M): Alaykum assalaam.
R: How are you?
M: All right.
R: You people... the work is not getting done.
M: (?) We have to change places. There are a lot of problems.
M: Tell me what you want to buy.
R: Why have you hidden your face like a bride?
R: Wherever I go, you guys have covered your face.
M: That's how it is here. We have to do this or the police will be after us.
R: We are the insiders. At least show us.
M: Do you want to see our faces or buy our goods? Take it and leave.
R: So I had spoken to Rashid. That's when we had gone. We had come to Jola once earlier. We didn't see you then.
M: I had told Rashid. He had received the message. You guys were late. Now, give the money and take the goods.
R: How do we manage [AK]56 and 47?
M: It is difficult with them for now. You won't get it now.
R: May I sit down?
M: Yes. You will get the goods, that's not an issue. You will get whatever you want.
R: We want ten 9mm pistols. How much will that be? Your man at the previous adda
was telling us Rs. 7,000.
M: Nobody gives even a tamancha
for 7000, let alone a pistol. You will get a revolver for 12,000 and a pistol for 16,000.
M: We will tell you the rates of AK 47 and 56 when they come.
R: And why is that taking so long? You supply well. You are good dealers.
M: These are difficult times. There are blasts happening in Hyderabad, hence the goods can't come. We can't find our man.
M: Once we find him, you will get it immediately.
R: We hear a lot of reports that there is a lot of fake stuff.
R: But you assemble it here and say it is from Pakistan.
M: No, it all comes from Pakistan. It arrives here in parts, we put it together here.
Accomplice (A): Assembly... What kind of 47 do you send? We can't send it.
M: Don't get into how it is done. Keep to yourselves.
R: Do you bring it yourself from Pakistan?
M: How does it matter?
R: Still... If you say it is from Pakistan, how do we know?
M: It comes from Pakistan, however it does. It crosses the border via Nepal.
A: Why don't you show us your sample?
R: Yes, at least you can tell us about that.
A: Show us the sample.
M: You haven't given any payment yet...
R: We need to see it first.
M: Show them the sample.
R: What else do you have?
R: Show them all of it.
M: That's the sample.
R: There are no pistols.
M: The revolvers have come. The pistols will come soon like I said.
R: Is this from Pakistan or Indian? Here... all this...
M: You don't have an eye for this.
R: I do. I have shot a lot more than you.
M: All this is coming from Pakistan. Where else?
R: How many have you fired? How many have you killed, tell me?
M: I... what do you mean by asking all this?
R: You said that I don't have an eye.
M: These are futile talks.
M: Check it out and leave soon. There are a lot of problems going on.
R: Let me see it first, whether this is genuine or not, where you have got it from.
R: You also get things made in Kanpur and from ordinance. Do you also have 'setting' in there?
M: Our superiors know if they have a setting.
A: You also have superiors?
M: You will get anything you want.
A: Which politicians do you give [bribes to?]
M: Don't ask me these pointless questions.
R: Arre, tell me.
M: Take your stuff and go. And give the payment soon.
R: We will do the payment...
M: We don't have that much time.
R: There is a problem in this.
M: You don't even know how to open this and you say...
R: It has to run smoothly.
R: This is good stuff. If you could also show us samples of grenades...
M: There is 'tension' going on. You won't get the big stuff. It will be coming soon. We will tell Rashidbhai.
M: You may contact him. You don't even have to come here.
R: When are you going to Pakistan?
M: We have sent a man there. He will be coming soon.
R: How does it work for you? You manage to sell so much... do some 'setting' for us too, yaar.
R: The policemen harass a lot. Do you have any 'setting'?
M: We will tell that to Rashidbhai. When there is a setting, we can talk it out.
R: The delivery... will you be telling us? At least understand our order.
R: For now, we want ten 9mm pistols. Ten of .38 and ten of .32. Then we want 15 grenades.
R: What will you be charging us for the local made stuff?
M: There are various types.
R: And the rates. How can we take it without checking?
M: The grenades are not too cheap. You may check it first.
R: I'll do this: I will give you some advance. And...
M: Hurry up.
R: Wait a bit. It's our money. Let me count it.
R: This is around 15.
M: Okay. Whatever it is, pay Rashidbhai.
R: Count it, at least.
M: That's okay.
A: So when will you deliver?
M: It will take a week. You don't need to come. It will reach there.
R: Will you tell the address?
M: That will be later, not now.
R: You have taken the money. Can we at least take one or leave it?
M: Take one, it's no problem.
A: We want all the weapons to be delivered together.
R: All together.
A: So give us the delivery there and we will pick up the entire lot.
M: No problem. You take it now or later, it's not an issue.
A: We are not taking it now.
M: Rashidbhai had told us, that's why I do your job. Otherwise, we don't do it for anyone.
R: Why were you hesitating from meeting us?
M: In this age, we don't know what anyone will do of the other.
R: Arre yaar, you are not such big players yet. You are not in our league.
M: It's the people one is with who do these things, not others.
R: So how will you do it on a phone number? We have already paid up. At least tell us how we are to go ahead.
R: Such things only work on trust.
M: You will get the message.
R: Will you check everything?
R: Okay, we'll see you.
R: Okay, brother. Khuda Hafiz.
