According to the family source, Sidra had left home six months ago to pursue a career in showbiz.
However, her family was against her decision.
Sidra’s family members “conspired” to bring her back home on Eid, the source told the news outlet.
The family had told Sidra that she’d be forgiven for leaving home, and going against the family’s wishes.
However, it was time for Sidra to go back when the Eid gathering ended, and a heated argument took place which resulted in the fatal shooting.
She reportedly went inside a room after telling her family that she would leave the house, but Hamza, brother of Sidra, shot her in the head.
The victim, Sidra Khalid, had come to her home from Faisalabad to celebrate Eid.
The suspect, Hamza, is the only brother of five sisters.
While the father of the deceased is a retired inspector of a paramilitary force.
