Campus Platoon

Action packed, this gripping story is about a Second Year University Student who infiltrates a junior batch in the same faculty in order to understand unseen social issues among new arrivals.

However, Senior Student turned Insider, Chethi Senadheera bumps against something more serious than he originally expected within a junior batch — military intelligence.

Plot thickens as spy meets spy and Campus Platoon steps in.

8. Anomaly


The junior student called Dinukha did not fit into the picture at all. He was least moved by our proceedings, facing all distress wearing a deadpan.

Time and again my mates would try to crack him open but his mouth go clammed shut and remain thus, unresponsive and unfeeling. I did not want to raise alarms but I kept my eyes open wider than usual.

To me it looked like Dinukha too was interested in everyone else's life. Comments he dropped among his new friends were often innocent enough yet for an onlooker like me, downright inquisitive. I even regarded the way he moved within the junior crowd; silent and searching, debonair but deadly. He was an anomaly.

I got Neksha on the phone and told him I have got a tough case in my hands and that I need three Wu-Shu specialists from the national pool for a meeting at noon following day.

I said I would expect them at block 13. Neksha was delighted. It was just the sort of life he must have longed for when he first pumped the Insider idea into me on the registration day.
