A Japanese ship was en route to a mission in foreign seas. The captain of the ship felt tired and thought of taking a bath. He went for taking the shower and removed his diamond ring and Rolex and kept them on the table. When he returned after taking the bath, he found that the ring and watch were stolen.

He called the five members of the crew whom he suspected and asked them what they were doing for the last 15 minutes.
The Italian cook (with a butcher knife in hand): I was in fridge room getting meat for cooking.
The British Engineer (with a high beam torch in hand): I was working on generator engine.
The Pakistani seaman: I was on the mast correcting the flag which was upside down by mistake.
The Indian Radio officer: I was trying to make a contact with the company to inform them about our position.
The American navigation officer: I am on night watch, so I was sleeping in my cabin.

Upon listening to them, the captain caught the lying member. Who do you think stole the valuables?

Can You Answer This mystery Riddle

The Pakistani seaman is lying. This is because the Japanese flag looks the same upside down. There was no need to correct it and thus he is plainly lying.
