The cricketer’s Mother who apparently committed suicide had filed plea in the tribunal that her family does not want to look into or follow up on any lawsuit to investigate her death maintaining that they are being pressurized for a post burial inspection and judicial inquiry of her demise. The court then told that the family of woman cricketer Haleema Rafiq be not forced in any way to follow up on the lawsuit.

A 17 year old Halima Rafiq carried her own life 13 months later than she and four other women cricketers leveled harassment allegations opposed to top officials of Multan Cricket Council (MCC) in a TV show. An NGO has registered a request to prosecute a lawsuit opposed to six people, adding three of her teammates under the anti – terrorism act.
