Footage has emerged of the moment a pregnant singer was shot dead in Pakistan after reportedly refusing to dance for an armed man.

Samina Samoon, 24, who was also known as Samina Sindhu, was shot at while she was performing at a ceremony in southern Sindh province. 

Her alleged killer asked her to stand up and dance instead of singing while sitting, Pakistan’s Geo TV reported.

In the video, she can be seen standing up to continue singing while attendees tossed money at her.

A man among them, who was allegedly drunk, then pulls out his gun and shoots at her.

Ms Samoon was rushed to hospital but pronounced dead on arrival. 

Her husband said she was six months pregnant, the Hindustan Times reports.

He demanded the alleged killer be charged with double murder for killing the woman and her unborn child.

A suspect has been arrested.
