Chapter 317: The Inner Workings Of Things
“We are police officers handling a case under the military base’s judicial court in Jiang District. My name is Zhou Mei, this is my military officer ID, this is my arrest warrant, and this is your school principal’s approval letter for our inquiry.”
After displaying her military officer ID, the officer said, “Xue Miqi, we suspect that you are involved in a case of attempted murder, please cooperate with our investigation and come with us.
“Zhong Qianqian, we suspect that the mastermind behind the attempted murder is you, so please also cooperate with our investigation and come with us.”
No matter how ruthless Xue Miqi and Zhong Qianqian were, they were still just Year 3 Senior students.
Thus, after being ordered so coldly by the two officers, Xue Miqi immediately collapsed from her seat and sat paralyzed on the ground.
As for Zhong Qianqian, her eyes were wide open, and her face was filled with disbelief.
“Aunty… Aunty Officer, have you made a mistake? I… How could we have anything to do with a murder case? You… You must have been mistaken, right?”
At this moment, Xue Miqi and Zhong Qianqian no longer paid attention to the surprised, strange and disgusted gazes of their teacher and classmates.
They only felt that their whole world had collapsed.
“You just have to follow us, and we’ll find out whether we’ve been mistaken. In yesterday’s attempted murder case, both the killer and substantial evidence were swiftly identified. The murderer has already pleaded guilty, and admitted that he had received the homicide order through a third-party platform, which was his reason for launching the attack on the victim. After verification, we found that the employer who issued the homicide order to the third-party platform was Xue Miqi. This matter is conclusive and cannot be denied.
“As for you, we learned that you’ve always had a bad relationship with your sister, Zhong Nuannuan, who is also the victim. We suspect that, Xue Miqi, as your diehard fan, has been doing things on your behalf. Xue Miqi’s conflict between Zhong Nuannuan is not serious, and the 30,000 yuan fee that Xue Miqi paid to the third-party platform was transferred by you via mobile banking the night before. Therefore, we have enough reason to suspect that you’re the mastermind behind this murder case. Now, please come with us.”
Originally, as case-handling officers, it was not appropriate to publicize such things.
However, who allowed these two girls to have such malicious thoughts and provoke a sleeping giant?
The other party said that even if they are arrested, their reputation should be completely destroyed before their arrest.
Tsk tsk, how cruel.
However, to deal with people like these, who wanted to destroy others whom they did not like, the case-handling officers felt that their superior’s viciousness was appropriate.
Zhong Qianqian was already going mad from fright. Facing the case-handling officers who were about to take her away, Zhong Qianqian could only look at Zhong Nuannuan, and beg sorrowfully. “Nuannuan, how can you treat me like this? Although Mom has been slightly partial toward me, I’ve been with her for 18 years. How can you pull such a manipulative move on me just because Mom is biased to me? How can you slander me like this? I’m your biological sister!”
Faced with Zhong Qianqian’s sudden tearful accusation, Zhong Nuannuan was also stunned.
She was not the one behind this arrest!
On one hand, she had guessed that those unskilled thugs yesterday were recruited by Zhong Qianqian, and that the latter also planned to get these men to rape Zhong Qianqian, film a pornographic video, and post it on the school website when she was free.
However, she really was not behind this sudden arrest!
How did Jiang Shuwan get to know people in KE Organization? Who had she contacted? Was her trafficking at the age of three was related to Jiang Shuwan?
