Pakistani social media star killed by brother after scandal
Pakistani social media celebrity Qandeel Baloch, who recently stirred controversy by posting pictures of herself with a prominent Muslim cleric, was strangled to death by her brother, police said Saturday.
Her parents told police one of her six brothers strangled her to death as she slept in the family’s home in Multan, police spokeswoman Nabila Ghazanfar told The Associated Press.
Multan police chief Akram Azhar said police were searching for the brother, identified by the family as Waseem Azeem, who runs a local cellular phone shop.
“Apparently the lady died of suffocation but final opinion on her death would be possible only after report of chemical examination comes,” said Dr. Mushtaq Ahmed, who was among the team that conducted Baloch’s autopsy. “She might have been given some poisonous substance before being strangled.”
Pretty straightforward report, right?
