Qandeel Baloch murder case: Police nominates her brother
MULTAN (92 News) – Arif, brother of social media sensation has been nominated in his sister Qandeel Baloch’s murder case on Friday.
Police have nominated Qandeel Baloch’s brother Arif, who is currently residing in Saudi Arabia and his relative Zafar for planning the murder.
The 25 year-old Qandeel was strangled at her family home in the city of Multan in the province of Punjab. After going on the run, her brother was later arrested. In his confession video, he expresses no regret. “I am proud of what I did. I drugged her first, then I killed her,” Waseem Baloch says. “She was bringing dishonor to our family.”
Qandeel rose to fame due to the sassy, and increasingly political, videos she posted on Facebook. Her brother Waseem claims that having his friends share her pictures and video clips was “too much” for him and killing his sister was a better alternative than killing himself.
Both adored and reviled, Qandeel, who was buried Sunday, referred to herself as a “modern day feminist” and had nearly 750,000 followers on Facebook.
