Earlier on February 10, Shah Alam tried to commit suicide while he was inside the lockup. According to the police, Talukdar broke a toilet mug and tried to cut his hand with the broken part of the mug.

On February 6, the Dispur Police got custody of Shah Alam Talukdar for seven days. He was the mastermind of the six-member gang who had planned and plotted the murder of the Guwahati-based businessman Ranjit Bora.
On February 5, many facts regarding past crimes in which Talukdar was involved had come to the fore. As per reports, Shah Alam had illegally occupied the building of an elderly couple for running a school named Excel Academy in Guwahati’s Panjabari.
