Taarak Mehta Ooltah Chashmah: Chalu Pandey informs everyone that Bhide cannot retract his complaint because doing so would appear to be unnecessarily upsetting the police. Everyone is stunned and asks him why he struck such a deal. When Chalu Pandey unexpectedly introduces their service dog 009 and claims that this isn’t the major topic of attention, everyone is taken aback. This dog, he claims, never misses anything. They ponder the dog’s presence in their culture. The Inspector asserts that Popatlal hasn’t left society and that’s why they haven’t been able to locate him anywhere.
He claims that the canine will follow the accused’s scent and look for him. Fearful, Taarak and Anjali debate whether or not to tell Bhide the truth about Popatlal having spent the previous night hiding in their home. Iyer and Babita also give it some thought before deciding against speaking. The crew begins their search at Popatlal’s house before realizing that Iyer and Babita’s home is where the dog is barking. When they discover a cloth, Pandey ji deduces that Popatlal must have entered through the balcony.
Bhide becomes upset with Babita and Iyer for lying when they admit that Popatlal did visit their home. If they had simply revealed the truth, according to Madhavi, the situation would not have come to the attention of the police. Bhide concurs and explains that all he desired was Popatlal’s presence. Iyer notes that they delayed telling him because they were afraid of his reaction. After all, he was so enraged. When the search party descends into the compound, the dog approaches Taarak and Anjali’s home and begins to bark. Surprised, Bhide asks the couple if they are keeping Popatlal hidden in their home. Chalu Pandey queries why the dog is barking after Taarak rejects the assertions. They feel fear.
