MULTAN (Web Desk) – Slain internet sensation Qandeel Baloch had given money to her brother to establish mobile phone shop.

According to media reports, the slain social media celebrity had given money to her brother, who killed her, to establish mobile phone shop in Dera Ghazi Khan. While she was also providing financial support to her family.

Qandeel was strangled to death in her house in Multan’s Karimabad area in the early hours of Saturday morning. Her father claimed that she was killed by her younger brother, Waseem, in the name of honour.

Waseem, accompanied by police, confessed in a press conference that he had drugged and strangled his sister, adding that the motive behind the murder was that “she brought dishonour to the Baloch name” due to risque videos and statements that she posted on social media.

“There are other issues as well… Like the maulvi issue,” he said, in a apparent reference to a recent controversy surrounding Qandeel’s selfies with Mufti Qavi.

“She was on the ground floor while our parents were asleep on the roof top,” he continued. “It was around 10:45 pm when I gave her a tablet… and then killed her.

“She wasn’t aware I was killing her,” he said.

Waseem said he acted alone. “I am not embarrassed at all over what I did,” he said.

Qandeel’s father, Muhammad Azeem said in a First Information Report that his daughter came to Multan from Karachi to celebrate Eid with the family. He said that Waseem, 25, also came to meet them on July 14.

He said that he along with his wife went to sleep on the rooftop while Qandeel slept in a room where Waseem strangled her to death as he was against her working in showbiz.
