Q. Some important information leading to Sushila’s murder was given by one Sudarshan Lal. He had cultivated a habit of nothing in his diary the exact time of any strange, bizarre and unusual happening or event.
He had his way of recording time such as: If it was five minutes past seven, he would record 7:05. Or, when it was twenty minutes past one, it would be 1:20 in his dairy.
That day too, he did the same. As soon as he saw two masked men entering a neighboring house, he noted down the time. Two minutes later he heard six shots.
Later, it became known that those masked men had come to loot the house and when Sushila resisted one of them pressed the trigger and emptied the revolver on her.
The time noted by Sudarshan Lal would represent a figure in a complete square if the ‘point’ between hrs. and minutes were removed.
Another funny thing came to light. Had the reflection in the mirror of that particular time been noted and the decimal point removed, the figure would have represented two complete squares by the addition of 8 to it or subtracting 15 from it. From the above, can you tell when the first bullet was fired?
A. First bullet was fired at 10:26.
