Statement by his brother-
“She was bringing disrepute to our family’s honour and I could not tolerate it any further. I killed her around 11.30pm on Friday night when everyone else had gone to bed. My brother is not involved in the murder,” said Waseem to the media.
Qandeel Baloch, whose real name is Fauzia Azeem, was found dead at her house in Multan, Pakistan on Saturday and her brother had fled the crime scene.
The murder happened only three days after details about Qandeel’s three marriages in the past were revealed. She had also written to Pakistan’s Interior Ministry seeking protection but was not provided with any.
Qandeel, who enjoyed a following of tens of thousands on social media was one of the most controversial figures in the country and news of her murder also received mixed reactions from the people. While many condemned the killing, there was also a section which seemed ‘happy’ because they though she was a disgrace for the country.
