Police on Wednesday arrested a controversial cleric in the murder case of social media star and model Qandeel Baloch in southeastern Pakistan, officials said.

Upon his arrival in the court earlier, Mufti Qavi said that the truth will emerge victorious and he will accept the decision of the court. Upon his lawyer's request, the court had adjourned the hearing of the case till October 18 (today).

The cleric's request for bail was then rejected by the court which directed the police to arrest him.

Mufti Qavi has been nominated in Qandeel murder case.

A senior police officer, Mohammad Fahad, says the cleric was arrested as he tried to flee Multan.

Judge Ameer Ahmad Khan last week granted pre-arrest bail to Mufti Qavi shortly after a trial court issued his non-bailable arrest warrants in the Qandeel murder case.

The court, however, did not grant him extension and ordered his arrest. She was silenced in July previous year by her own brother who strangled her to death over so-called honour.

Qandeel, 26, was found strangled to death in her house in Multan's Karimabad area, some 350-km from Lahore, on July 16, 2016. Some of his phone calls were traced to another brother of Baloch around the time of her killing. Her younger brother, Waseem, confessed to police that he had killed Qandeel for disgracing family's honour.

"Qavi will not be allowed to attend meetings of the Ruet-e-Hilal Committee and National Ulema Mushaikh Council until further orders".
