SWAT: Another young and talented Pashto singer gets murdered at the hands of her own brother, masked under the name of honor. Sana was stabbed multiple times till she could no longer breath in Banr area. Banr is a famous name as it is celebrated as a center for Pashto musicians in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Swat district.
As the initial media reports say, the police is still trying to ascertain the motive behind the murder and are still reluctant to come up with any conclusive statement. However, they have confirmed that the accused is the victim’s real brother who fled after committing the murder. Following the incident, the dead body of the artist Sana was moved to Saidu Sharif Hospital for post mortem.
The plight of female artists in KPK:
She is not the first one to fall victim to such a horrifying tragedy. Soniya, a stage performer, was shot dead in Peshawar a few months ago. She was the third dancer brutally gunned down in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa during the past year.
The dangerous trend has been going on for a while and showbiz stars, particularly women, have been killed with impunity in the province. However, despite it being a repetitive sight, nothing has been done to put an end to this deadly trend.
Soniya was allegedly killed by her suitor, named Musaddaq, at her residence in Chowk Shadi Peer area old city. DSP Kotwali Malik Habib told a local news source that Musaddaq was Soniya’s suitor for a while. She was shot by him, leaving her critically wounded, on refusing his marriage proposal.
Earlier this year in February, popular stage dancer Sunbul was murdered in Mardan for refusing to perform. A few months later, another performer named Resham was shot dead by her husband over a minor domestic dispute in Nowshera.
