Qandeel Baloch was killed at the behest of Mufti Qavi, her father Muhammad Azeem told a court hearing the social media celebrity’s murder case in Multan on Monday.

Qandeel had been murdered last year, allegedly by her brother Muhammad Waseem, who said he killed her in the name of ‘honor.’

Her parents, Azeem and Anwar Bibi, were present in the court of Judicial Magistrate Pervaiz Khan today, along with Mufti Qavi, who is currently in police custody after his pre-arrest bail was rejected by a court earlier in October.

Azeem told the magistrate that he would not forgive anyone who was involved in his daughter’s murder.

He also maintained that the person responsible for his daughter’s murder was Mutfi Qavi.

The cleric, however, maintained his innocence before the court and said he had done nothing illegal, adding that whatever had happened was on the record.

Investigating Officer Asif Shahzad asked the court for a three-day extension in the cleric’s physical remand, saying that police was likely to get the results of a polygraph test conducted on Mutfi Qavi soon, on the basis of which they would be investigating further.
