Reportedly, Hossain and his colleagues ended up having a brawl, which alerted the other residents of the housing complex. The fight took an ugly turn and the security guards had to intervene to pacify the situation. At around midnight, one of the call girls, soaked in blood, came out of the apartment and cried for help. Hearing her screams, the neighbours came to her rescue and called in the police.
Meanwhile, the notorious criminal had locked the door from inside. When the cops knocked on the door, the wanted criminal tried to escape from the apartment, which was located on the fourth floor. A police official informed, “When cops knocked on the door, Hossain tried to slip out of the balcony using a curtain. But he soon lost grip and tried to hang on to a nylon rope. But he lost grip again and fell on the lawn”. Hossain was then rushed to the RG Kar hospital where he was declared dead on arrival.
