According to ANI, the video is of a festive ceremony in Sindh province where the woman was performing. The murder had allegedly taken place two days before the video surfaced on the internet.
The 24 year old woman Samina Sindhu, was in Kanga village for an event where she was singing for her audience, ANI reported.
According to reports as the event progressed, a man, identified as Tarique Ahmed Jatoi, asked her to stand while singing. The singer reportedly refused to comply to his demand apparently because she was pregnant. The denial did not go down well with Jatoi, who was allegedly inebriated and shot her dead.
However, as seen in the video, the singer could be seen complying with the request and standing up and giving performance. Currency notes were hurled at her by few men. Seconds later she was shot dead.
The video that appeared exclusively on Larkano News of Pakistan, was shared by an Islamabad based human rights activist Kapil Dev on Twitter and is going viral since then.
