Sumaya’s father said that they have some personal enmity with their neighbours regarding land and property.

They suspected that this might have been the primary reason behind the murder.

He also said that since the entire family except Sumaya were out of the house for a family function, the people entered the house with a motive of burglary but as Sumaya was present in the house, they killed her.
