Rohan bought a new house. Everything in it was state of the art. The refrigerator was stainless steel, ovens were electric, even the windows were built to only open from them inside. Rohan planned a small get-together with his friends at his new house. He went to the store and bought some steaks, wine, and other things that he saw fit. He invited John, Mike and Marry. They talked about sports, news, and gossiped about people in town. After a while, Mike started to get a little tipsy and was getting a little rude. John politely asked him to settle down, but Mike got furious and tried to fight. After quite a brawl, Rohan got a taxi for Mike and everyone left. The same day at 8:00 P.M, police got a call that Rohan had been murdered. When the police arrived at the scene, they found Mike and Marry. The police officer decided to question them both at the station.
When the officer questioned Mike, he said: “I was talking to Marry on the phone when i told her i should go and apologize to Rohan. She said that she should come with me in case things got heated again, and i said that was fine. I got there about ten minutes after Marry did, and i noticed that the front door was locked.I decided to look through a window to see if they were there, when i saw Marry, blood soaked, tossing a knife into the sink. I quickly opened the window, crawled through and called the police. Marry killed Rohan”.
When the officer questioned Marry, she said “Mike called me and told me to meet him at Rohan’s house, so that he could apologize about our get together. I got there about ten minutes faster than Mike, so i decided to wait in the car for him . After a while, i got bored so i decided to go in and tell Rohan what was going to happen. I noticed the door was wide open, and i thought that was strange because Rohan is a very nervous man. So, i rang the doorbell, walked in, and locked the door.I saw Rohan lying dead on the floor. I was about to call the police when i saw Mike in the other room saying that i killed Rohan, and that he had called the police”. After investigating the crime scene, office found the murderer.
Who was the murderer?

Mike murdered Rohan.
Explanation: In the beginning, it was mentioned that windows were designed to open only from the inside.
If Mike had tried to open the window, he would have found it that it wasn’t working and he would not have been able to get through the window without breaking it.
