Muzaffarabad police have registered a murder case against the accused Waseem, the brother of model Qandeel Baloch.
The case was registered on an application of Qandeel Baloch’s father Muhammad Azeem.
Talking to media on Saturday, SP Cantt Saifullah Khattak said the case No 439 had been registered under section 302.
He said more names might be added in the case after arresting the accused. The culprit is on the run after committing the crime.
According to further reports, the accused fled with jewellery and money after murdering the model.
Three weeks ago, Qandeel had written to the interior minister, the director general of the Federal Investigation Authority (FIA) and the senior superintendent of Islamabad asking them to provide security to her and has requested action against those who made her identification documents public via social media.
She had said her life is in danger and that she is being threatened via calls on her mobile number and that she did not have security measures installed in her home.
Baloch, who set in motion events that led to the suspension of Mufti Qawi’s membership from the Ruet-e-Hilal committee, was once married and has a young son. On Wednesday, Aashiq Hussain of Kot Addu claimed in television interviews that he was once married to Baloch.
Soon after the interview appeared on television, Baloch admitted that she had married once but was divorced. However, both sides gave conflicting accounts of the marriage.
