Authorities conducted polygraph and DNA tests on Pakistani social media sensation Qandeel Baloch’s brother who killed the model-cum-actress for honour.
The police official heading the investigation team took suspect Muhammad Waseem, Qandeel’s brother, to Lahore to conduct the tests in a forensic lab on Friday, Dawn online reported.
According to police, further evidence was needed to corroborate the confession and investigate if any other was also involved in it.
“Waseem was taken to Lahore on Friday for tests. The results of polygraph and DNA tests will be available next week,” according to senior police officer Azhar Akram.
On Wednesday, police obtained a five-day physical remand of Waseem who had confessed to strangling Qandeel to death, before the judicial magistrate on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, acting SP, Investigation, Ali Mardan said police would interrogate cleric Mufti Abdul Qavi regarding the case next week.
He said police investigation so far suggested that Aslam Shaheen, another brother of Qandeel who was initially nominated in the FIR by the family, was not involved in the case.
