Stepbrother kills Pakistani model for ‘honour’

A Pakistani fashion model, who was found dead at her house here last month, was killed by her stepbrother for “disgracing the family’s honour”, police said on Monday.

On her return from Dubai, the 29-year-old model, Nayab Nadeem, was found strangled at her house in Lahore on July 11 and a murder case was registered on the complaint of one of her two stepbrothers.

Punjab police spokesperson Rana Arif told PTI on Monday that the mystery of this blind murder has been solved as the victim’s stepbrother turned out to be her murderer.

The model’s stepbrother, Muhammad Aslam, has confessed that he first strangled her and then stripped her dead body naked to mislead the police and show that it was a rape-cum-murder case.
