ISLAMABAD: Pakistani social media sensation Qandeel Baloch's father said his son, who killed the model-cum-actress for honour, should be "shot on sight".

"I say he should be shot on sight. He suffocated my little one," Baloch's father Anwar Azeem said.

According to the News International report on Friday, Baloch's parents voiced their pain at the murder of their daughter by their younger son Waseem, who killed her for bold posts and pictures on social media sites.

"We were drugged, asleep upstairs. She must have called out to us," Azeem said.

Azeem said that his daughter was his "best friend" but claimed that his son Waseem had been "crazed".

Baloch's mother said she used to share all her secrets with her.

"We were mother and daughter, sharing all our sorrows and secrets. She used to tell me 'Your daughter is working hard, she'll go far'," she said.

Qandeel's mother said she and Azeem were also drugged the night Baloch was first sedated and then strangled to death.

"My husband and I fell deep asleep. We had drunk milk, it had been mixed with sedatives," she said.

"In the morning, I called Qandeel for breakfast... but she didn't get up."

Her mother, describing Baloch's corpse, said: "Her whole face was covered in bruises, her tongue was black, her lips were black."

Baloch was killed on the night of July 14 by Waseem. He confessed to drugging her and then strangling her to death, for family honour.
