Pregnant Sindhi singer shot dead in Pakistan for refusing stand-up performance

Lifestyle       by Bushra Nayeem | Published

In a horrific incident, a pregnant Pakistani singer was shot dead during a festive ceremony in Sindh province.

The 24-year-old singer identified as Samina Samoon was a famed Sindhi artist. The reports indicate that during the incident held at Goth Kanga near Larkana, some spectators suddenly fired shots, resulting in Singer Samina Sindhu's death.

Samina was in Kanga village for an event where she was sitting on stage, singing for her audience.

The singer was taken to Chandka Hospital where she succumbed to her injuries and was declared dead. At one point, three men approach the stage appearing to throw pieces of paper, most likely bank notes, at the singer, who then stands up without interrupting her song. However, the chief justice rejected the request, ordering the police officer to arrest the accused at the earliest and launch an enquiry against him under the anti-terrorism act. The singer reportedly refused to comply to his demand apparently because she was pregnant.

He demanded Jatoi be charged with the double murder for killing both his wife and unborn child. They blamed the police for arresting and torturing them instead of taking action against the accused, the Daily Times reported. However, Jatoi, who was inebriated, shot her dead just moments after she got up.
