Please note that I have written the report just a day after the incident took place.

Hi, Subhajit,

The text of your example can be Googled. Do you really claim to have written it yourself? If it was really you who wrote it, then you write for India Today. If not, then you are plagiarizing by claiming you wrote it. Please answer the question.

There are many grammatical errors in the passage, but the tenses are OK. Again, the biggest problem is that you seem to be trying to pass off somebody else's writing as your own, which is not only against GE policy but unethical and illegal.
