Lahore: Pakistani theater actress Shamim was shot dead on Monday by unidentified gunmen in Punjab province, a family member said.

The 29-year-old artist was killed early Monday morning outside her house in Shah town of Multan city, about 350 km from Lahore.

Her brother, Saifur Rehman, told the police that someone had called his Shamim to come outside the house before she was murdered.

"When she came out of the main gate of her residence, unidentified men opened fire on her, killing her on the spot," he said.

He said his sister had recently received threats from someone for performing in theaters.

Shamim's family also suspect that her estranged husband might be involved in the murder.

The police have registered an FIR against unidentified people and said they will probe the case from all angles.

Shamim was known as 'Shamo' and a very good dancer.

Last year, famous theater actress Kismat Baig was killed by her estranged lover in Lahore. She was shot 11 times in her legs, stomach and hands. "Kismat now you will not be able to dance," one of the gunmen said after spraying bullets on her legs, her driver had told the police.

A number of stage actresses - Nadra, Nagu, Yasmin, Naina, Nagina, Marvi, Karishma, Sangam and Arzo - of Lahore and Multan had been killed in the past, either by their estranged lovers or over enmity issue.
