Some techniques of writing a report
� Write a catchy title to attract the readers and it will reflect the whole incident.
� Even the readers will be able to hold an idea what actually happened/the matter was without going through the report in detail.
� Your title will rouse curiosity among the readers which will lead them to read the description.
� Put the date and name of the place where the incident takes place.
� Try to write the information concisely and accurately
