Stop the Robber!

“I’ve been robbed! Help! Somebody help!” Shilpa ran out of her house at 9 a.m. on Tuesday. Her neighbour, Inspector Khan, immediately came over and checked on her. “Who has robbed you? Why are you shouting?” he asked.

Inspector Khan had seen the newspaper delivery boy cycling past Shilpa’s house. He also spotted their neighbour, Mita, jogging in front of Shilpa’s house. He stopped them both to find out if they had seen anything suspicious.

Inspector Khan looked at Shilpa’s garden, at the people he had just questioned and then at Shilpa. He said, “Don’t worry, Shilpa. This is the easiest robbery case I’ve ever solved. I know who did this to you.”

Who robbed Shilpa and how did Inspector Khan figure it out?

It was Mita. She said she jogged past Shilpa’s house so that she could see the Marvel of Peru every morning but this plant only blooms in the evening.
