Not ashamed of killing Qandeel, brother makes confession Live Update The suspected murderer has confessed to her killing and said he was not ashamed of his act.
CPO Multan Azhar Akram presented the alleged culprit before media who confessed that he had killed her sister, Qandeel.
The suspect had strangled her sister on Friday night and then fled to DG Khan.
“We are respected people of Baloch cast. Qandeel’s videos making rounds on social media could not be tolerated, hence I solely decided to kill her. I am not ashamed of my conduct,” he said.
Meanwhile, police said body of Qandeel Baloch was in Edhi mortuary and would be sent to her ancestral village the next morning.
According to multiple outlets, her body was found at home and both her family and police believe she was murdered in a so-called “honor killing” by her brother. Honor killings occur when a person, usually a man, kills a relative, usually a woman, whom he believes is bringing shame on the family.
Baloch’s liberal attitudes about female empowerment reportedly threatened her brother, who was also said to be upset that her images were widely seen on social media. Baloch had recently sought government protection after receiving death threats.
