Hina was reported missing on the 14th July 2022 having last been seen alive on the evening of the 11th July. Subsequent enquiries have led to her body being discovered in FOLKES LANE UPMINSTER ESSEX RM14 on Saturday 16th July 2022. A man has been charged in relation to Hina's murder. 


It is important that we obtain as much background information about Hina as possible. We know very little about her since her arrival in the UK in November 2021.

We are keen to trace her friends,work colleagues and anyone who had some form of association with her in order to build a bigger picture of her life.

I would urge anyone who may have information which could assist us to come forward"
