The suspect, identified as Qasim, confessed to the crime. He said that he told his sister to quit the music industry but she wouldn’t listen to him so he killed her to protect the ‘honour’ of his family.

On May 7, a local singer Meena was also killed in Swat. According to the police, Meena was killed by her husband in Swat’s Banr.
