Detective Rajmohan was jogging on an early morning. On his way, he found a crowd around a dead body of a woman.

People were staring at the strange body with fear.

Rajmohan took the mobile phone from the jeans pocket of the dead body and he dialed the last number, saved as " My Hus". On the other end, someone answered. Their conversation was like this:

Rajmohan: Hello, can you come? Your wife is lying dead in the middle of the road!

My Hus: What? Yes, I am coming!

Within 5 minutes, the husband was here. He arrived alone in a car. But the detective arrested him without asking or saying a word.

It is because:

The detective doesn't give a precise adress, but the husband still know where to come.

  • $\begingroup$ Areeb, it was quick because it's a very easy puzzle (and also a well-known one -- see the remark in comments above about its being a duplicate, and note that the earlier one was also answered within a couple of minutes of being posted). $\endgroup$
