“Qandeel Baloch has been killed, she was strangled to death by her brother, apparently it was an incident of honour killing,” said Sultan Azam, senior police officer in Multan.
The 26-year-old, who is popular for posting risque videos and statements on Facebook, was killed by her brother.
The brother fled after the incident, the police officer said, adding that the brother was upset at the “disrespect” Qandeel had caused to the family. Murdered Baloch’s father confirmed the attack by her younger brother in a statement.
Baloch was strangled to death in a house in native Multan where she had been residing for past six days. Body of the victim has been shifted to Nishtar Hospital.
