Former T20 Capain Shahid Khan Afridi helped Mehak’s family financially but even then she could not survive.
She was one of the best tennis players in Sindh who made her name in a very short span of time and many times represented her province. The family of the deceased girl could not afford treatment because of financial issues. The government was requested for financial assistance of the family but in vain.
Prime Minister Imran Khan soon after taking oath as Prime Minister of Pakistan took the first notice for treatment of Mehak Anwar and directed the authorities concerned to provide her proper treatment. But despite the clear orders of the PM, the family could not receive any financial assistance.
