Numbers of party leaders, workers and supporters attended the funeral prayers of PTI`s woman leader.

She was targeted by the three gunmen riding on motorcycle outside her residence. The motive behind the killing was unclear while the tension has run high between the PTI and MQM. After her killing Imran Khan condemned the killing of its party leader and held MQM chief Altaf Hussain for Zehra`s killing.
