Family members, who were hopeful of her recovery as her condition was improving, said her condition deteriorated in the morning suddenly and she passed away.

The reason behind the death couldn’t be ascertained.

Vaqas had told the OT after recovering from the infection he was discharged with his mother being shifted to ICU after some health issues. For all these days, the family was taking care of her in the hospital.

She was unaware about her husband’s death with whom she was married in 1960.

Like her husband, she is to be laid to rest at designated ITO graveyard.

Ashghari Beghum, who has left behind two sons and a daughter, a Professor of English at DU, was a housewife.

Ashghari Beghum’s daughter-in-law Rizwana Waqas told the OT earlier that how she had taken care of the family members when they were down with fever.
