Srabon did not know who Azad was. He had no knowledge of Azad’s cause or beliefs. He first saw Azad when Ukil’s son Pavel, and his friend Ripon, pointed out the conservation leader to Srabon on the day of the murder.

He had been looking for an opportunity to take out Azad all day. While the day did not provide any such opportunities, the cover of night provided that fatal chance.

Azad was ambushed by a group led by Srabon.
