Death of a model and social media celebrity: Horror as Qandeel Baloch, who is a popular Pakistani model is killed by her brother in apparent honour killing, police have reported.

The 26-year-old beauty was murdered by her brother Waseem when she went to visit her parents in Multan.

A Police spokeswoman stated that  the police were alerted to the killing Saturday and are investigating the crime.

Sultan Azam, senior police, had this to say:

"Qandeel Baloch has been killed, she was strangled to death by her brother, apparently it was an incident of honour killing."

According to local sources, Waseem was upset about her social media posts and had previously threatened her about it.

Family sources revealed that her brother had asked her to quit modelling. Her parents said she was killed after the pair had a quarrel.

Muhammad Waseem, who was arrested late on Saturday, confessed how he gave a "tablet" to Baloch to subdue her and then strangled her in their family home over the weekend.

"I have no regrets," he told journalists in a police arranged press conference on Sunday.

Baloch's stance on her modelling and provocative poses and Kim K style social media presence had brought her a lot of death threats, but it was at the hands of her own brother that death came calling.
