On Sunday, the funeral prayers of model and social media celebrity, Qandeel Baloch, murdered by her younger brother, were offered at her ancestral village Shah Saddardin in Dera Ghazi Khan district.

Later on, she was buried in a local graveyard.

In the same vein, a duty magistrate in Multan jailed her brother and confessed killer, Waseem, in police custody for three days.

Qandeel’s body was carried to her village, where a large crowd had gathered in the morning.

Prior to the funeral, female relatives of Qandeel applied henna to her hands and feet as is custom. According to sources, her mother repeatedly kissed her hands. Her brothers and two married sisters were present to complete her last rites.

Mohammad Azeem, Qandeel’s father, talking to media personnel claimed that he would fight for the case against Waseem.

“She was my son, not a daughter. I have lost my son. She supported all of us, including my son who killed her,” he added.

His sons were displeased with “her achievements” and turned against her although she supported them, he added.

Village residents denounced the killing of Qandeel, describing it as “a brutal act”.

Azhar Akram, City Police Officer held a press conference on Saturday night where Waseem admitted to having killed Qandeel in the name of honor. He claimed to have no regrets.

A neighbor in Multan, who lived in a house adjacent to Qandeel’s revealed that the deceased had asked for the hand of her daughter for Waseem.

“It seems unbelievable that she has been killed by a brother for whom she was trying to arrange a marriage,” she added.
