Her elder daughter, younger son and daughter-in-law became homeless, going from place to place in order to avoid being arrested. She lived at home with her elder daughter-in-law and three teenagers.

People from the Criminal Investigation Division kept threatening her. As a result, she was in deep distress. In June 2002, she passed away.
