PESHAWAR: Pashto singer Gulnaz alias Muskan was killed in the Gulburg area of Peshawar Cantt.

Police said unidentified gunmen entered the house of Gulnaz also known as Muskan and shot her dead.

The family of the deceased singer said four people had come to the house and after a verbal scuffle had opened fire on Gulnaz.

She was shifted to the hospital but succumbed to her injuries.

The police have registered a case on a complaint by Gulnaz’s brother Sadaqat.

The singer originally hails from Par Hoti area of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Mardan district.

Police has launched an investigation into the murder.

AFP has reported police station chief chief as saying that Gulnaz had married three times and had some personal enmities.

However, attacks against female singers are not uncommon in KPK.

A young actress suffered burn injuries in June last year when she had acid hurled at her while she was sleeping.

The 18-year-old, known as Bushra and popular in the northwest for her film, television and theatre appearances, was attacked at her home in the town of Nowshera.

Another popular Pakistani singer Ghazala Javed, 24, was shot dead by gunmen as she left a beauty salon in Peshawar two years ago over a dispute with her ex-husband.
