The bail plea of Muhammad Waseem, the main accused of Qandeel Baloch’s murder, who is also the brother of the late model, has been rejected by the additional district and session’s court in Multan.
The additional session judge has rejected bail for Wasim, who had accused the police of implicating him in the case with malafide intentions, terming his detention unjustified. According to him keeping him in jail till the decision of the case is not justified. “The recording of statements of witnesses is at its initial stage and as per some decisions of the superior courts I’m entitled to bail as the police did not make recovery from me,” Wasim stated.
According to him other other parties accused in the murder case have been released on bail. While his parents have also submitted an affidavit in which they have forgiven him and have given their consent for the release. Accused Waseem, Qandeel’s brother, had fled the scene at the time of the murder and later he had recorded his statement before the magistrate under Section 164. Wasim had also confessed to his crime and the DNA and forensic report had proved his involvement in the murder of his own sister.
