He sped home to collect it and went to office, all at a higher speed than normal. He reached at 8:45 am.

Habits like dragging a pointer along the lines of a passage while reading it or reading the passage aloud hamper reading speed. Practice a visual reading style and assimilate information simultaneously along with reading to increase reading speed.
