Himu got married in 2000 and divorced in 2005. Later, a man named Tawfiq became a good friend of Himu. They had a good relationship. However, Taufiq committed suicide in 2017-18, after which Himu broke down mentally. Since then, Himu had a good relationship with Zia.

At this time, Zia called Himu’s makeup artist Mihir who was in the next room. Later, Mihir brought a bow from the kitchen and cut the rope and lowered him down.
Later, with the help of Zia, house janitor and Mihir, Himu was taken from home to a hospital in Uttara of the capital, where the doctor declared Himu dead. Jia ran away with Himu’s two mobiles and Himu’s car when the doctor said to call the police as a suicide case.
