One murder happened in a village. A police officer instructed two police constables to go to the crime scene, investigate and prepare an preliminary incident report. It was already past midnight and the crime scene was far away from the police station. The two constables decided not to travel to the crime scene and came up with a fake incident report instead. Below is the report. When we reached the spot, the door was open and one man aged between 40-45 was found dead lying on the floor. The light and fan were switched on. There were some items found on a table: – One open bottle of poison, – One half filled drinking water bottle, – One fountain pen, – One newspaper was flipped open, pages 9 and 10 facing each other, – One table top calendar showing June 20, – One notebook. The person committed suicide by drinking the poison. After reading the incident report, the police officer immediately knew that it was fake. How did he know?
