PPP MPA Shahnaz Ansari was killed Saturday evening in an attack on her in Sindh’s Naushero Feroz.
She was rushed to a hospital in Nawabshah where she passed away. She was shot thrice.
She was in Darya Khan Marri for her brother-in-law’s chehlum. An argument reportedly broke out after which some relatives opened fire at her.
The police are not releasing any details about the case yet. They have cordoned off the village where the attack occurred but the people suspected of firing at Ansari have fled.

She expressed her shock that an attack like this would occur at a family event.
