Karachi, July 16 ANI: Pakistan's social media star Qandeel Baloch has been shot dead in Multan today.

The area's RPO told The Express Tribune, "Baloch was killed by her brother over honour in Muzaffarabad's Green Town area."

Baloch had not disclosed her location due to the security threats, the official added.

The 26-year-old model-actor had earlier claimed that she was receiving death threats and had sought security.

However, following "no response" from the interior ministry on her application for getting personal security, the social media starlet was planning to settle down abroad after Eidul Fitr, citing security threats in the backdrop of her recent scandal with Mufti Abdul Qawi as the reason.

"I know I will not be provided security and I am not feeling secured here so have decided to move abroad with my parents after Eidul Fitr," Qandeel said earlier.

Qandeel had recently taken the internet by storm as she shared a couple of selfies and a video of herself with Mufti Qawi, a former member of the Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee.

Some days back she starred in a Pakistani music video, 'Ban,' by Aryan Khan featuring twerks, a slashed bodysuit and lots of laces. (ANI)
