24-year-old Samina Samoon was performing on stage at a festive ceremony in Pakistan when she was shot in the stomach. Neither she or her unborn child survived the horrific attack.
The pregnant singer was seated during the performance, and she began to be badgered by an audience member. Tarique Ahmed Jatoi began to yell at her, ordering her to stand up during the performance.
She refused at first, but as he began to grow more irate, she finally got to her feet. Two men threw money at her as she sung, but moments after she stood, Jatoi fired the shot that would claim her life.
According to her husband, Ashiq Ali, Samina was six months pregnant with their child and was not willing to dance. Even though she eventually stood, it seems that Jatoi was irate about her decision and he decided to murder her.
Immediately after being shot, they raced her to the Chandka Hospital to try and save her life. Unfortunately, the injuries were severe enough that she could not survive.
Ashiq is hoping that the Jatoi will be charged with double homicide, as he took not only the life of Samina but of their unborn child. Jatoi has been arrested according to the local media, but no further details have been released yet.
This is a horrible story, and we know that sometimes we need a reminder of the good in the world at a time like this, so be sure to check out the video below!
