When days went by, Rifa's brother got a job little but far from Rifa Mehnu's home. Rifa Mehnu continued to upload their videos on social media pages, but they found it difficult to do their Youtube activities and job searches by having the child. And so Rifa went back to Kerala alone to leave her child with her parents.
When she returned to UAE, she came along with her husband's friend, a Youtube Video editor. She brought him with the request of Mehnaz. Rifa found it hard to share her house with that new person. There were many clashes between them. Finally, Rifa got a job as a saleswoman in a shop, but Mehnu Mehnaz was still looking for a job.

But when the parents asked for the autopsy files as requested by the police, he said that the autopsy was not done.
After this incident, Youtuber Mehnu Mehnaz was absconded, taking away the mobile phone of his wife, Rifa. The phone number is switched off as well. He didn't even see his child after doing the final rituals for Rifa. This brought much suspicion to Rifa's death.
