The cleric has been nominated after statement of Qandeel’s father which he recorded before the police.
Sources informed that the Mufti could be arrested soon. Police said Mufti Qavi will face grilling in the murder case.
In his earlier written statement to police, Mufti had claimed that he first met Qandeel during a TV talk show and his last meeting was held at a hotel in Karachi on 13th of Ramazan.
Mufti Abdul Qavi was suspended as the member of Ruet-e-Hilal committee after his pictures with Baloch went viral on social media. The video of Mufti and the model went so viral that it was also echoed in Senate Standing Committee on Religious Affairs meeting.
Qandeel Baloch was murdered by her own brother named Waseem in Multan on July 15th. The suspect stated he killed his sister as she “brought disgrace on the family”.
Her brother had confessed to killing her and expressed no remorse for the crime. “I have no regret on what I did,” he bluntly told journalists when police produced him during the press briefing on Saturday.
“We are respected people of Baloch cast. Qandeel’s videos making rounds on social media could not be tolerated, hence I myself decided to kill her. I am not ashamed of my act,” he said.
