In a horrific incident, a pregnant Pakistani singer was shot dead during a festive ceremony in Sindh province. A video has surfaced, two days after the murder had taken place. She was 24 years old and was the famous singer of the region. Her name was Samina aka Samina Sindhu.
She went to perform in Kanga village for an event where she was singing for her audience. When she was performing a man, identified as Tarique Ahmed Jatoi, asked her to stand while singing. The singer reportedly refused to comply with his demand apparently because she was 6 months pregnant. The denial did not go down well with Jatoi, who was allegedly inebriated and shot her dead. Watch the horrific video of this incident here shared on Twitter by one Islamabad-based human rights activist, Kapil Dev.

However, in the video, the victim, later on, could be seen complying with the request and entertaining the attendees with her singing, as they tossed money at her. But, just moments after she stood up, the singer was shot dead.
Samina’s husband has demanded that the First Information Report (FIR) should charge the accused of double murder for killing his wife and unborn child. The accused has been arrested by the police.
