Reports indicated that the incident occurred while policemen deployed on night duty were undertaking the routine handing and taking over process, with the Charge Room Officer (CRO) identified as Inspector Kikisu Kenan, caught off guard.

Sources said while the policemen were still handing and taking over, the suspects in the cell started chanting Allah Akhabar, before violently breaking the cell and escaped, knocking down the cell guard in the process.
