In another incident, a man had boarded the shared auto-rickshaw from Pritam's Global Cuisine in Thane where he work. "His (Raikhan's) work place is hardly 15 minutes drive from his house in Ghodbunder Road where he lives with his sister. On Sunday night, he boarded the auto at 12:30 am that had three passengers inside,” said victim's cousin Alum who is a research analyst in Mumbai. A few minutes later, the driver stopped the vehicle saying he had to pee. All of them got out except Raikhan, said Alum, who added, "He was seated at the corner in the rear seat of the auto-rickshaw."

"When they returned, they suddenly started thrashing Raikhan mercilessly. He screamed for help but since the stretch was poorly-lit, none of the vehicles stopped nor anyone came to rescue him. The robbers in the guise of passengers and driver stabbed him on his back and threw him out of the running vehicle on the road," Alum added. After being thrown out of the running auto-rickshaw, Raikhan was screamed for help, said Alum. When a few passersby stopped after noticing a man lying in the pool of blood, they informed Thane (rural) police and one team reached the spot.
