Following the collision, an argument broke out which tragically led to the stabbing, Mohammad Shamsuddin, the officer-in-charge of Morrelganj Police Station, detailed. Witnesses at the scene promptly intervened, rushing Imran to Bagerhat District Hospital, where he was pronounced dead upon arrival.
