There was a tribal village that was managed by a powerful Leader.
There was a theft in the village which had occurred recently, however no one knew who it was.
After some investigation the police narrowed down on 8 suspects and brought them to the Leader.
The Leader gave each of them a stick and said, “These are magic sticks. Overnight the culprit’s stick will grow two inches longer than the rest. So tomorrow we will catch the thief.”
Even though the sticks did not have any magical power, the leader caught the thief in the morning.
How is it possible?
