KHYBER PAKHTUNKHWAN

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.
