Pulari B.G. aka Super Cop 001 cracked the Super Sleuth Mystery!

The house is responsible for Nishant’s disappearance. It was because of the rotating bookcase, of course. In the story, Vivek claims Nishant was near the bookcase. We also hear a click sound when we see Nishant standing beside it. I bet it was the rotating bookcase. In the map, we see a secret passage near the bookcase and the closet.

Here’s how it happened:
  1. Nishant picks up a book (actually a lever) from the bookcase, which opens a secret passage.

  2. Filled with curiosity, Nishant enters the passage.

  3. By the time Vivek looks behind, he sees only the bookcase which has shut again.

  4. Shantaram overhears the conversation and knows what has happened. He then uses the hollow fireplace to disappear which makes everyone think he is a ghost!

  5. The secret passage leads to the safety room. The footsteps heard by Nishant’s friends might have been made due to Nishant’s walking, and perhaps, in the dark, Nishant could have been crashing into something. Nishant is sitting safely in the safety room.

Mystery solved!

Outstanding deductive skills, Pulari! We hope you crack many more cases in the future!
