A dead body is found at the bottom of a multi-storey building. Seeing the position of the body, it is evident that the person jumped from one of the floors, committing suicide.
A detective, Sherlock Holmes is called to look after the case.
He goes to the first floor and walks in the room facing the direction in which the body was found. He opens the window in that direction and flips a coin towards the floor. Then he goes to the second floor and repeats the process. He keeps on doing this until he reaches the last floor.
Then, when he climbs down he tells the team that it is a murder not suicide.

    The detective goes to all the floor and open the window before tossing the coin that means all the windows were closed.

    now if the committed suicide then he will not be able to close the window after jumping

    that means someone pushed him out of the window and after that closed the window

    It all so means the man cannot jumped from the balcony may be balcony has some railings or high wall or locked etc that prevented him from jumping from it.
