MULTAN: A sessions court on Saturday rejected the bail plea of Qandeel Baloch's brother Waseem, who was booked for the murder of the social media star in July of 2016 in Multan.
The additional session judge turned down bail plea of the main accused who had accused police of implicating him in the case with malafide intentions, terming his detention unjustified.
