Saudi Arabia has handed over brother of Qandeel Baloch, Muzaffar Iqbal to Pakistan who was accused of her sister’s murder.

According to the reports, the International Criminal Police Organization’s (Interpol) cell in the Kingdom had arrested brother of Qandeel Baloch to tackle international crime.

The arrest made on the Pakistani government’s 2016 request to Saudi Arabia.

Iqbal was residing in the Kingdom at that time.

Muzaffar Iqbal accused of aiding and abetting in Qandeel’s murder.

In 2016, Qandeel’s brother, Waseem, had strangled her to death at her residence in Punjab.

Qandeel’s father Muhammad Azeem Baloch, had lodged a murder case against his son.

An affidavit submitted by the parents in 2016 had also named two of other sons, Aslam Shaheen and Arif.

Last year, another absconding suspect and brother, Arif, caught with the help of Interpol from Saudi Arabia.

He transferred to Multan following his arrest.

In September, a model court had sentenced the slain model’s brother, Waseem Khan, to life in prison for murdering his sister.

He had on record admitted to drugging and killing his sister when he presented before a special magistrate.

Six acquitted in the case including Mufti Abdul Qavi as well as Qandeel’s other two brothers, Aslam Shaheen and Arif.

On August 22, the court had rejected the August 21 appeal of late model’s parents to acquit their sons as they had forgiven them.

However, her parents had refused to pardon their sons and had called for capital punishment in the case.

Qandeel’s father said he would be happy if his son and the three other accused “hanged for their unforgivable crime”.

On 15 July 2016, Qandeel Baloch drugged and then asphyxiated by her brother M. Waseem while she slept at her parents’ home in Multan.

Baloch’s father Azeem stated in the FIR that his sons Aslam Shaheen and Waseem were responsible for their sister’s death and had killed her for the money she had.
