Qandeel Baloch laid to rest in DG Khan village
Her family members were present at the time of burial in village Shah Sadruddin. A large number of people attended the funeral.
Qandeel’s father Muhammad Azeem told ARY News that his daughter had planned to enter politics in a few days. “She had asked me for permission about it and I’d given her a go-ahead,” he said.
Heart-broken father said his sons were ‘provoked’ to murder Qandeel. He said it seemed it was his destiny to suffer pain at this stage of life.”
Police had registered a murder case against her brother based on her father’s written complaint, in which he accused his son of killing his daughter for honour because “his son wanted her to quit showbiz”.
