Whats the movie where an Indian man and white man are detective partners trying to find who attacked an important elderly man?

The Indian detective is assigned a white European partner for the case. A reoccurring quote by the men is "Where were you the time of the murder?" and the suspects correct them with "He wasn't murdered he was attacked". It was made between the 60s and 70s and takes place in India. I believe in the end, a homeless man leads them to important evidence to find the assailant.

The year is way off, but this is
"The Perfect Murder" (1988) with Stellan Skarsgård playing the white European partner detective

Full movie is on Youtube:
At ca. 0:48:07 starts the scene where the Indian inspector asks the Indian woman where she was at the time of the murder, and the woman corrects him, it was not a murder, it was an attack.
