“The brother was also there last night and the family told us that he strangled her to death,” another police official Azhar Akram told AFP.
Qandeel’s brother is now on the run while an FIR for Qandeel’s murder has been nominated in the name of Mufti Abdul Qawi. Qandeel had fled to Multan without disclosing her location to anyone, owed to the constant security threats she was receiving.
“Qandeel’s brothers had asked her to quit modelling,” family sources stated.
The social media sensation Qandeel Baloch just released of one of Pakistan’s raciest music video ‘BAN’ with singer Aryan Khan, the social media queen has now confessed that she was married to Aashiq Hussain and even has a son.
Qandeel has recently been in the limelight for posting selfies with Ruet-e-Hilal Committee member, Mufti Qavi. She is known for posting racy videos and selfies on her social media accounts.
“My husband used to beat me up,” Qandeel said while speaking to Express News.
Baloch admitted to having a son with Hussain. However, she also said, “He never told my child I am his mother. It was a forced marriage.”
Aashiq Husaain on the other denied all her claims and stated that it was a love marriage. “I still have letters which she wrote with her blood,” he said.
“She wanted a car and bungalow from me,” Hussain said.
“I never contacted Aashiq Hussain after the divorce,” she told Express Tribune. “I took a divorce because I wanted to study further and work but I was forcibly married,” Qandeel added.
“He tortured me day and night during the one year I was married to him,” Qandeel said. “After a year, I ran away with my son and sought refuge in Darul Aman,” she continued.
Her son then fell sick and because she could not afford his treatment she was forced to give Hussain the custody.
“I will fight for my son now,” Baloch said.
Qandeel further added that she was married to a man from Kot Addu when she was 17 and it was a forced arranged marriage.
