Social media star Qandeel Baloch who was murdered by her brother has been wiped off networking sites.

Her official Facebook page that hosted her photos and videos is no longer available, and her account on Instagram, also owned by Facebook, has been deleted, the Dawn reported.

As per Facebook policy, an account which belongs to a deceased individual is automatically made into a memorialised account where friends and family can share memories.

However, according to Facebook’s help centre, “Pages with a sole admin whose account was memorialised will be removed from Facebook if we receive a valid request.”

Baloch shot to fame with her racy social media posts, which enraged many in deeply conservative Pakistan.

Baloch, real name Fauzia Azeem, was killed on July 15 in her family home in Multan in Punjab province. Her brother confessed to strangling her for dishonouring the family and bringing them to disrepute.

Her website Qandeelbaloch.com has been suspended but her Twitter handle is alive.
