Social media is in shock after the tragic death of the 26-year old Pakistani model, Anam Tanoli.
Police discovered her lifeless body hanging from the ceiling fan of her room at her residence in Defence B area, Lahore. The deceased was later shifted to Jinnah Hospital for further investigation.
The Curious Case of Anam Tanoli’s Death
The initial medical examination has revealed that Tanoli was suffering from depression. No marks of torture were found on her body and she reportedly died of asphyxiation.
Anam’s mother told the media that the model was under severe mental stress and had an appointment scheduled with a therapist later that day.
However, further inquiry by the police will eventually decide if this was a suicide or a homicide.
The young model was also a fashion designer and had returned from Italy two months back.
Taking immediate notice of her alleged suicide, PTI’s presidential candidate, Arif Alvi has announced a 24/7 helpline for those suffering from depression.

A young, up and coming Pakistani/Italian model died yesterday. On the face of it, it looks like suicide by hanging. I wonder what could possibly have driven a talented young girl like that to take her own life. R.I.P. #anamtanoli #depressionkills #bekindtoothers

A seemingly happy girl in Venice a few months ago. Now found dead hanged from the ceiling fan in her apt.
Did she commit suicide or was this murder? I didn't know her at all but am so disturbed and confused by this.

Maloom howa hoga apko …. k kuch loogoon k kuch comments nai aik dunia ka gala us k apnay hathoon say daba dia. Baishak anam ka apna hissab zaroor hoga. Naram dil aksar kamzoor hotay hein That was not a solution. Zindagi bhi gai aur akhirat bhi khatray mein. Par jiss jiss nai apnay alfaaz say aik zindagi ko maut ki taraf dhakaila hai hisaab aur insaaf un k bhi intezaar mein hai. Allah Maghfirat karay ameen #anamtanoli
Meanwhile, actress Saeeda Imtiaz who will be seen in Pakistani movie Kaptaan, claims that Anam’s death is a murder.
R.I.P Anam tanoli – She is surely murdered as I recently worked with her. she was a young confident girl n too blunt. Such a jolly soul; No matter how depressed she could have been will not commit suicide in such a way as far as I believe. I hope justice prevails 💔

What’s more, a video has surfaced on social media in which a Youtuber called ‘Chacha Shakoor’ has claimed that Anam Tanoli was murdered.
His video also claims that the model Anam paid several visits to a Punjab MPA’s residence in Thokar Niaz Baig and has deep ties to this murder case.
However, no evidence was revealed in the video in this regard and could be a mere sensationalist report.
Earlier, Anam Tanoli addressed her haters in a video message occasionally who bullied her on social media.
While her Instagram account has now shut down, the clip is now going viral on social media.
Anam’s case is yet another wake-up call for all of us to start taking depression seriously. What’s more, bullying must be condemned and shunned in all professions.
We offer our condolences to the friends and family of the departed.
