Harshita Dahiya, who was popular in the state of Haryana, India has been killed by a group of gunmen.

Police said at least seven bullet wounds have been found in the body of the 22-year-old folk singer, who was killed yesterday (17) while she was on her way back to her home in Delhi after a performance in Haryana's Panipat.

Harshita Dahiya was shot in the head and neck at close range by men who blocked her car and forced others with her to get out.

She died instantly, the police said.

Around 4 pm, two men in a black car allegedly overtook her car and blocked it.

"A car overtook her vehicle near Chamrara village and forced it to stop," a senior police officer said.

Harshita Dahiya had recently posted a video on social media alleging death threats.

"Do whatever you want, I am not afraid of dying," she had declared in what turned out to be her last recorded video.

She had not, however, alerted the police.

Harshita's sister Lata has alleged that her husband, who is currently in Delhi's Tihar Jail, is involved in the killing.

Dinesh, a gangster, was accused by Harshita of raping her in 2014 and killing her mother later that year.

"She was killed by my husband because she was a witness in my mother's murder," said Lata.
