Accession of Junagarh to Pakistan happened on September 5, 1947 and the Indian forces occupied this Hindu majority state on November 9, 1947).
The last days of Bibbo's life were very miserable and poverty stricken. At the time of her death in Karachi, no one was around her to drop some juice in her mouth.
