Urooj Iqbal was associated with a Urdu daily and was entering her office situated in Qila Gujjar Singh in central Lahore when her husband Dilawar Ali shot her in the head, leaving her dead, Dost Mohammad, a senior police officer said. Though Urooj was taken to hospital, it was too late.

"We have registered an FIR against the victim's husband working in another Urdu daily, on the complaint of Urooj’s brother Yasir Iqbal,” Muhammad said.
