During the investigation she volunteered to giver her hair, fluid and nail samples which the SIT refused.[6] Later she returned to the reality show after the interrogation.[citation needed]

In December 2016, Mumaith fell down from the bed at her apartment and hit her head which led to an internal injury damaging her nerves in the brain. She was in coma for 15 days and the doctors said it would take her two years to recover after treatment and surgery. Subsequently, this led to few neurological health problems like seizures and has been on medication for last two years.
