The girl’s mother had suspected that Rizwana had been administered poison by her employer(s) during domestic violence in Islamabad. At this, the doctors sent blood and other samples of the girl to the laboratory.

Rizwana had been working in Islamabad as a maid for six months, where she was allegedly subjected to torture for long.

According to the doctors, the wounds were too old, due to which the infection in Rizwana’s blood had increased. Some members of the medical board told the media that the girl had an infection in her lungs, which was making breathing difficult for her. They said Rizwana was undergoing frequent episodes of psychological problems due to severe torture. Following her mental and physical health conditions, the board members declared that they were unsure about her recovery.
