In yet another incident of violence against women artistes in Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, actress and singer Reshma was recently shot dead allegedly by her husband in Nowshera Kalan area.

According to a report by Geo TV, Reshma, who was the suspect’s fourth wife, used to live with her brother at the city’s Hakimabad area.
