Hospital staff were told by Saeeda and Mohammad Yunus that they found her unconscious and that they thought it was caused by low blood pressure.
However Mohsina was allegedly suffocated with a pillow by her mother after she supposedly walked in on her with their tenant Guddu.

The affair is thought to have been happening for two years, with family members suggesting that she had been forbidden to marry Guddu.
