Fauzia Azeem alias Qandeel Baloch, who was all over the internet and Twitter trends for her twerk video, Ban, was shot dead in Multan today, 16 July.
According to media reports, actor/model Baloch was shot dead by her younger brother over honour. However, initial reports also claim that she was strangled to death. It appears that her brothers had told her to quit modelling.
Though she had not disclosed her location due to security threats, her brother reportedly knew her whereabouts and allegedly murdered her.
Baloch was also hailed as Pakistan's Poonam Pandey as she wanted to strip and dance for the Pakistan cricket team during the T20 World Cup in March.
Recently Baloch had admitted to being married and having a son. She had said she was a victim of domestic abuse and violence. She had also claimed her marriage was a forced one and she was just 17 when she was forced to enter matrimony.
Soon after the starlet made this shocking revelation, a man named Aashiq Hussain came forward claiming to be her ex-husband, and revealed far more shocking details about their marriage.
According to an Express Tribune report, Hussain, however, claimed that theirs was a love marriage and Baloch was lying. "I still have the letters which she wrote with her blood," he had claimed. He also claimed that Baloch wanted a car and bungalow from him.
