It was later revealed that a bike man carrying a woman suffered a mishap close to an open manhole and the women fell into the canal through the open drain, while the bike man was arrested for not heeding warnings to avoid that route.
Days later, the family of Latifat revealed she was the one who fell into the canal and she didn’t survive it as her body had been in there for days before a search was conducted.
