According to his FIR, Kainat was poisoned to death allegedly by the Secretary-General of RCSP, Khalid Khan. Khan currently is in police custody for investigation.
Kainat’s father claimed Khan had secretly married Kainat and also took her to Britain. Moreover, Kainat’s mother suspected that she was pregnant with his child. As a result, Kainat was urging Khan to make their marriage public.

Police officials told Independent Urdu that Kainat died of the poison pills that she bought herself. According to them, they could tell this after collecting data from Kainat’s telephone and from CCTV footage outside her office.

Dr. Maha’s did accuse some of her friends, including one of her colleagues, of raping and blackmailing her. So much so that in sheer despondency she took her own life.
