KARACHI: Model Qandeel Baloch, who was strangled to death by her brother, wanted an Indian citizenship, Indian media reported on Monday.

The model had tweeted in March that she wanted an Indian citizenship because she was 'disappointed from Pakistan' and tagged Narendra Modi in her tweet.

In an interview just days before her death, she had said, "In Pakistan, people are not ready to accept me. It would be much easier for me to work in India." There were also rumours that she was going to be a part of 'Bigg Boss 10', but Baloch did not confirm this and posted that she will "appear on Bigg Boss if they (the producers) agree to my terms."

The controversial model was receiving threats from her family because of her bold pictures and videos, the most recent one being the music video Ban.

A couple of weeks before her death, the slain model had requested for more security from the government and cited death threats as the reason she was forced to go underground.

Qandeel was often criticized for her Facebook posts and videos by a certain section of the population who thought she was spreading immorality while others thought she was breaking social taboos.. Citing security issues, Qandeel had said that was planning to settle abroad.
