The Pakistani police arrested Waseem Aseem, the brother of slain social media celebrity Qandeel Baloch in Dera Ghazi Khan. The murderer confessed the killing in the name of ‘honor’ and ‘Family’s respect’
Waseem Confessed His Crime
Accompanied with the Pakistani police, Waseem confessed his crime in a press conference that he initially drugged her and then strangled Qandeel his sister. He further added that the motive of the killing was ‘honour killing’ as “she brought dishonour to the Baloch name” due to risque status, statements and videos that she posted on her social media account.
He also confessed that there were other issues too like “the maulvi issue,” he said, in an apparent reference to a recent controversy surrounding Qandeel’s selfies with Mufti Qavi.
He Narrated How He Murdered Her
“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. He further mentioned that he acted alone and is not at all embarrassed over whatever he did.
The Pakistani police chief Azhar Akram said that Waseem killed her by covering her mouth and nose. Post that, he fled to Dera Ghazi Khan with two of his friends. They are on the lookout for his friends as well. After enquiring they will be able to determine whether the friends too are involved or not.
The authorities have assured that they will charge Waseem with carrying out so-called honor killing and seek the “maximum punishment”.
Waseem’s Planning and the Involvement of Qandeel’s Other Brother
Qandeel Baloch’s father Muhammad Azeem said in a FIR that his daughter Baloch came to Multan from Karachi to celebrate Eid with the family. Post that, Waseem, 25, also came to meet them on July 14.
On the fateful day, 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. The father alleged that Waseem had taken this extreme step at the behest of his brother Mohammad Aslam Shaheen.
Qandeel’s funeral was held early Sunday (today) near her family home in Shah Saddardin, Dera Ghazi Khan.
