Pregnant Singer Shot Dead after Being Told to Stand up While Performing

Pregnant singer shot dead in Larkana for refusing to stand up and sing

A video clip of the attack has surfaced on social media where the 24-year-old singer Samina Samoon, also known as Samina Sindhu, was shot dead by one of the people in the audience.

A pregnant Pakistani singer was shot dead in a festive ceremony in Larkana of Sindh province because she refused to stand while she was singing. She was six months pregnant.

Police have reportedly arrested Tariq Jatoi in connection with the killing, though he disputed the story that he commanded she rise, and instead claimed he was firing a gun in the air and Sindhu was hit by accident.

Soon after the shooting, Samina was taken to a hospital where she was declared dead. The gunman, identified as Tarique Ahmed Jatoi, asked her to stand up and dance as she sang, and when she refused to comply, shot her dead.

Study finds dementia risk increased with brain injury
The idea that blows to the head suffered by boxers and footballers may increase the risk of dementia is a hotly debated issue. Between 1999 and 2013, 4.5 per cent of the study population aged 50 and older were diagnosed with dementia.

According to the local sources, singer Samina Sindhu was singing a Sindhi song at a local signing ceremony and a spectator who was present requested the singer to dance while singing.

Commenting that further action would be taken after the accused's medical report is released, the police officer explained that videos made during the wedding event would likely be made part of the consequent investigation.

Police have arrested the suspect, who Samoon's husband believes should be charged with double homicide, as Jatoi allegedly murdered both the young artist and her child.
