As reported by Times of India, Pakistani model Qandeel Baloch has been shot dead by her brother in Multan.
Qandeel’s brother had been threatening her for posting bold videos and statements on Facebook.
Baloch, a Kim Kardashian-type figure, had been frequently posting semi-nude selfies on social media sites.
Though she was reviled by many and frequently subject to misogynist abuse online, Baloch had also won praise by some of the country’s youth for her forthright attitude.
On Valentine’s Day, she donned a plunging scarlet dress and posted a video message defying the country’s president, who had issued a stern warning against the “Western” holiday. The post garnered more than 70,000 ‘likes’, Reported Times of India.
