Qandeel's brother arrested, confesses to strangling her for honour

Karachi, Jul 17 (ANI): A day after Pakistan's social media star Qandeel Baloch was choked to death in Multan city, her brother Muhammad Waseem, who confessed to killing her in the name of 'honour,' has been arrested in Dera Ghazi Khan.

In a press conference, the 25-year-old admitted that he had drugged and strangled his sister as "she brought dis honour to the Baloch name" due to risque videos and statements that she posted on social media, the Dawn reported.

Referring to a recent controversy over Qandeel's selfies with Mufti Qavi, he said, "There are other issues as well... Like the maulvi issue."

Revealing how he killed the 26-year-old model-actor, Waseem said, "She wasn't aware I was killing her. I gave her a tablet and then strangled her."

According to city police chief Azhar Akram, Waseem had killed her by covering her mouth and nose.

Akram said, "After that he fled to Dera Ghazi Khan with two of his friends. We are working on catching the friends and I expect they will also be caught soon. After speaking to them, we will be able to determine whether they were involved or not."

In a First Information Report, Qandeel's father Muhammad Azeem revealed that his daughter came to Multan from Karachi to celebrate Eid with the family. They were joined by Waseem on July 14.

He alleged that Waseem, who was against Qandeel working in showbiz, had taken this extreme step at the behest of his brother Mohammad Aslam Shaheen.

Arrangements were being made to send Qandeel's body to her hometown of Shah Saddardin in Dera Ghazi Khan for burial.

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)
