Detectives claimed that they had been looking for deceased Ramzan Ali, who has 93 criminal cases filed against him, and Rakib Hossain Aqmal, with six cases filed against him recently.
According to the case filed in connection with the deaths, the detectives stumbled upon the two while on patrol. It said the deceased muggers along with a gang of five to six people were waiting to ambush people in front of T&T School and College in Motijheel around 2:45am.

Ramzan's wife Nusrat Jahan Jharna told The Daily Star at their Rayerbagh home that she suspected that her husband had been picked up the evening before and then murdered.
“My husband was missing since 7:30pm yesterday [Saturday]. He left home yesterday afternoon with a friend saying he needed to go to Sayedabad. I last talked to him around 7:00pm [over the phone]. From 7:30pm onwards, his phone was off. That's when I suspected that he might have been picked up because there were several cases against him and detectives had come to our home looking for him,” said Jharna. 
She said several individuals claiming to be detective police had come to their home on the night of June 24 looking for her husband.
