The popular Pakistani singer Ghazala Javed was shot to death in Peshawar yesterday along with her father.
Police official Imtiaz Khan said the ex-husband was suspected of involvement in the murders.
The singer had fled to Peshawar in 2009 to escape the then Taliban-dominated northwestern district of Swat as the army launched a sweeping offensive.
Ghazala Javed sung in her native Pashto language and released more than two dozen albums that were popular among Pashto speakers in the northwest.
She married businessman Jahangir Khan in 2010, but demanded a divorce after finding out he had another wife and because he tried to ban her from singing, the family said.
Not the Taliban, just a murderous possessive ex-husband.
