A Multan model court announced on Friday Qandeel Baloch’s brother Waseem Azeem life iomprisonment in her murder case. A life imprisonment is a 25-year sentence.
The online networking star was choked to death in Multan in July 2016. Her sibling Waseem Azeem was blamed for her homicide. Azeem said she “carried disrespect to the Baloch name” with her scandalous recordings and proclamations posted via web-based networking media.
The other six suspects for the Murder case were vindicated, including Mufti Abdul Qavi and Qandeel’s other sibling Shaheen. The other sibling was blamed for encouraging Azeem to slaughter Qandeel. He was captured in Saudi Arabia this year with the assistance of Interpol.
Waseem had at first admitted to the wrongdoing however later changed his statement. The court had been hearing the case for a long time. A high court had expelled his bail applications twice previously. The court had held its decision after the defense and prosecution finished their arguments.
Prior, Qandeel’s dad had documented an appeal seeking for pardon of his son however the court turned it down.
The sworn statement said that the Anti-Honor Killing Laws (Criminal Amendment Bill) 2015 — which keeps murdered from wandering free in the wake of being pardoned by the victim’s family — was passed a very long time after Qandeel Baloch was killed and, therefore, can’t be applied to her case.
