A father shot his 18-year-old daughter in Vano Ghari village of Sardaryab, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa after a video of her dancing went viral on social media.

The girl’s mother told the local authorities that she, along with her daughter and a son-in-law, were at her home when her husband Bakhtiar Gul entered, grabbed a gun, and shot his daughter to death.

She further said that her husband killed their daughter when someone he met taunted him about the video.


The mother has claimed that the murdered girl worked as a domestic helper for a wealthy family in Islamabad, where another male from Swat also resided.
The man allegedly proposed to the woman, but she declined because she was already engaged.

She stated that after the youngster tried to blackmail her and failed, he posted a video of her dancing on social media with a fake ID as retaliation.
She claimed that they had made the decision to file an FIR in Islamabad against the man on the day the incident occured.
