MULTAN: Pakistani social media star Qandeel Baloch was strangled by her brother in what appears to be an “honor killing”, police said on Saturday.

Baloch’s raunchy social media photos challenged social norms in Pakistan.

Baloch received multiple death threats and suffered frequent misogynist abuse, but continued posting provocative pictures and videos. In Facebook posts, she spoke of trying to change “the typical orthodox mindset” of people in Pakistan.

Punjab Police spokeswoman Nabeela Ghazanfar told Reuters Baloch, real name Fauzia Azeem, was killed in her family home on the outskirts of Multan.

“Her father Azeem informed the police that his son Waseem has strangled Qandeel,” Ghazanfar said. “Apparently, it is an honor killing but further investigations will reveal the real motives behind this murder.”

Police were now looking for Waseem, who has disappeared, she added. -Reuters
