Qandeel Baloch, who is known as Pakistan’s Kim Kardashian, was allegedly killed by her brother Waseem when she was visiting her parents in Multan.
Sultan Azam, senior police officer, said: “Qandeel Baloch has been killed, she was strangled to death by her brother, apparently it was an incident of honour killing.”
The 26-year-old shot to fame on social media by posting risque photographs, video and comments online.
In one of her last Facebook posts, Ms Qandeel, whose real name is Fauzia Azeem, wrote: “No matter how many times I will be pushed down under… I am a fighter, I will bounce back.
“Qandeel Baloch [is an] inspiration to ladies who are treated badly… I know you will keep on hating, who cares?”
In March Ms Baloch also released a video promising to perform a “striptease” dance if the Pakistani cricket team triumphed in the World Twenty20 cricket championships.
In the aftermath of her death a number of vile social media users praised her suspected killer and sickeningly called her death “good news”.
According to local sources, Waseem was upset about her social media posts and had previously threatened her about it.
