A few months ago, Ibrahim’s first wife issued him a threat. The couple got divorced in 2010.  

Basan police station’s OC Moktar Hossain said during preliminary interrogation; Ibrahim had   hired professional killers to have his wife murdered . 

As Mamun happened to witness the incident he was also killed due to being the only eye witness, Ibrahim told police.  

However, it is yet to be ascertained why Ibrahim planned to kill his wife.
