# Who Stole Animals

Riddle

A hen, a dog and a cat are stolen. Three suspects are arrested named Jagga, Dhamaka Singh and Gogo. The police are sure that each of them has stolen one of the animals but they don?t know who stole which animal. Detective Mehul is appointed to identify and is provided with the following statements from the investigation.

Glance at the first and second statement again; they are contradictory. Both can be true together though. Also both of them cannot be false which means that Gogo stole cat and his statement will be true. But it has been already deduced that the one who stole cat was telling a lie thus it can?t be possible. Let us consider the situation again. It may be that Gogo stole a hen or a dog. Assume that he stole hen. In such a case the statement of Gogo will be false. But we know that the person who stole hen told the truth, thus it is contradicting our assumption and so cannot be correct. Considering everything, now we can say with confidence that Gogo stole the dog. Now it means that the statement by Jagga is completely false and the statement by Dhamaka Singh is true which depicts that the cat and hen are stolen by these two. Also we know that the one who stole hen is true and the one stealing cat is a liar. Thus we now know that Jagga stole cat and Dhamaka Singh stole hen. Hence we can deduct the following as our answer; Jagga Stole Cat Dhamaka Singh stole Hen Gogo Stole Dog
