LAHORE: On Saturday evening, a young and up-and-coming model was found dead under mysterious circumstances in a house here in the city’s Defence neighbourhood.
According to the police, the body of Anam Tanoli, 26, was found hanging inside a room in the Defence-B Area house, in what is being considered a suicide. It was later moved to Jinnah Hospital.
Tanoli, who was also a fashion designer and one of the rising stars in the new generation of models in the Pakistani fashion industry, had returned from Italy around two months back, police said, adding that they were investigating whether there was any foul play involved.
A statement from the deceased’s mother was also recorded, police noted. Citing the statement, a local media outlet reported that Tanoli was “under mental stress” and “had an appointment scheduled for the same day with a therapist”.
