Pakistan’s internet sensation and a small time model, Qandeel Baloch has been shot dead, reports Pakistani media.
According to Express Tribune, early reports suggested that the actor cum model was shot dead by her brother.
“Baloch was killed by her brother over honour in Muzaffarabad’s Green Town area,” the area’s RPO told the paper.
Baloch had not disclosed her location due to security threats, the official added.
She had earlier claimed she was receiving death threats and had sought security. However, following “no response” from the interior ministry on her application for getting personal security, social media starlet Qandeel Baloch is planning to settle down abroad after Eidul Fitr, citing security threats in the backdrop of her recent scandal with Mufti Abdul Qawi as the reason.
“I know I will not be provided security and I am not feeling secured here so have decided to move abroad with my parents after Eidul Fitr,” Qandeel was quoted by media in the recent past.
One of her recent Facebook posts had said, ” No Matter how many times i will be pushed down under,,But I m Fighter I will Bounce back..#Qandeel #Baloch is “One Women Army”.. #Qandeel #Baloch inspiration to those ladies who are treated badly and dominated by the society..I will Keep On Achieving and I know You will Keep On Hating..DAMN but Who Cares #Qandeel #Baloch #Women #Power”
