According to the report, the police described the incident as “honour killing”, adding that her brother had protested at the “kind of pictures she had been posting online” prior to her death.

The unfortunate incident which took place in the city of Multan in the country’s province of Punjab, was reported to the police by Baloch’s father, Muhammad Azeem.

Born on March 1st 1990, the deceased whose real name was Fouzia Azeem, gained popularity by posting bold, sassy, and controversial photos, videos, and comments on social media.

She reportedly used the “Qandeel Baloch” name and moved to Punjab from Karachi “for security reasons”.
