LARKANA: A local singer, Samina Sindhu, was shot dead for refusing to perform while standing during a festive ceremony at Kanga village in Larkana on Tuesday.
The pregnant 25-year-old singer, who was seated while performing, was shot dead by the accused, Tarique Ahmed Jatoi, after she refused to ‘oblige’ by his orders to perform while standing.
Samina was rushed to the Chandka hospital where she succumbed to her wounds. Moreover, it was said that the accused was intoxicated when the incident took place.
The singer’s husband told the media that Samina was 5-months pregnant, while he also requested the authorities to register a double-murder case – one of the slain singer and the other of the unborn child.
