The scope of investigation into the murder of social media celebrity, Qandeel Baloch, whose actual name was Fozia Azeem has been expanded by the police on Monday to include her parents and cleric Mufti Abdul Qavi.

Qandeel famous for her risqué videos and selfies on social media was drugged and strangled to death on Friday at her Multan residence by her brother, Muhammad Waseem, who confessed to having killed her for honor.

According to the SHO Muzaffarabad police station, the father of Qandeel Baloch had altered his statement three times. The autopsy had also shown a different time of the murder, contradicting the statement made by the parents in the FIR. Three members of the panel in Multan’s Nishtar Hospital made a report which stated that the murder had occurred between 9pm and 10pm on Friday and the body was reported to Rescue 1122 on Saturday morning around 11am. On the contrary, the parents said that their son had murdered Qandeel around 2am to 3am in the morning.

Waseem, the suspect, claimed that he had drugged Qandeel with the same medicines that his father used to sleep. He also reported that he had come three times with the desire of killing his sister but each time his parents sent him away by saying that she was not at home.

Mufti Abdul Qavi’s name was also included, who ‘selfie’ photographs had been displayed on social media in the previous month and caused a controversy costing him membership of moon-sighting committee.

The mother of Qandeel Baloch, on Monday, accused Qavi of inciting her sons, Shahid, Aashiq and Waseem against Qandeel.

Qavi was quite shocked that she was not cursing her sons and voicing the real reason for the murder.

“I do not want to break the heart of Qandeel’s mother and want police to do the investigations on merit,” he said.

Following prior investigations, the police have included Section 311 in the FIR. This means the state will become an applicant in the investigation and it will prevent, in the future, the major applicant Muhammad Azeem from forgiving his son Muhammad Waseem, the primary accused in the case.

CPO Multan Azhar Akram stated that Section 311 about banning the right of qisas has been added to the FIR to make qisas inadmissible in the case.

Waseem has been sent to the Muzaffarabad police station for three days.
