Pakistani stage artiste Kismat Baig was shot dead by unidentified gunmen in an unfortunate incident that saw the relentless murders shoot her in the legs, stomach and hands.
Kismat Baig was returning to her house after performing at a stage play when gunmen riding a car and a motorcycle intercepted her and opened fire at her last evening, police said.
She was shot eleven times in her legs, stomach and hands. Baig and her driver were rushed to the Services Hospital where she died because of profuse bleeding, police said.
Her driver’s condition is reported to be stable. Police suspect that her ‘estranged lover’ maybe behind her murder. Investigating Officer Asghar Husain told reporters that it was a target killing.
“The attackers were waiting outside the theater and when she left for home they chased her,” he said.
“Kismat now you will not be able to dance,” one of the gunmen said after spraying bullets on her legs, according to her driver.
“Baig was targeted twice in the past by gunmen but escaped unhurt. Initial investigation reveals that she had relations with an industrialist of Faisalabad city. We will summon the industrialist and some family members of Kismat for interrogation and soon will reach the murderer,” Husain said.
