It was not immediately clear who killed Zara Shahid Hussain, 59, a senior member of the Tehreek-e-Insaf party (PTI).
Hussain "was leaving her home for some work when three gunmen attacked her. She thought they wanted to snatch her purse and handed it over to them but they killed her", Firdous Shamim, a local PTI leader, said. Police said all three gunmen escaped after the attack late on Saturday. "They shot her with one bullet near her chin and she could not survive," senior police official Nasir Aftab told AFP.
Around 150 people were killed in the run-up to national elections held last week, which handed a landslide victory to opposition leader Nawaz Sharif and his PML-N party.

Muslim Democracy in action.
