Qandeel Baloch, a 25-year-old social media star from Pakistan, was killed by her brother in her family home, reported several news outlets on Saturday.
"Her father Azeem informed the police that his son Waseem has strangled Qandeel", Ghazanfar said.
The brother of Qandeel Baloch, whose risqué social media posts both titillated and appalled conservative Pakistan, on Sunday admitted to strangling her in a crime that reignited debate about so-called "honour killings" in the South Asian nation.
Qandeel had made headlines recently after posting a selfie on her Instagram account of her alongside Mufti Abdul Qavi, a senior member of the clergy. Relatives and a large number of local residents attended her funeral prayers in Shah Sadar Din village, around 130 kilometres from Multan.
Qandeel had taken social media by storm with her statement promising to strip if Pakistan won the T20 cricket match against India in March.
Wasim told reporters that he drugged her and then strangled his sister to death.
Qandeel Baloch created uproar in the Muslim community when she posted pictures of her with a prominent Muslim cleric, People said.
According to media reports, the slain social media celebrity had given money to her brother, who killed her, to establish mobile phone shop in Dera Ghazi Khan.
"I was determined either to kill myself or kill her", he added as he was being led away by police, noting that he was "not embarrassed" about the murder. Murder carries a potential death sentence, and the honor killing charge will make Azeem ineligible for a family pardon. Qawi was last month embroiled in a scandal with Qandeel after she uploaded her pictures with him during a meeting.
