@RyanSolanki Please mark as solved if you are happy the issue is resolved. Also consider reading up further about Qt's memory management model (maybe it would make sense to pass a parent during the QSqlQueryModel's construction to avoid all that manual memory management or else perhaps smart pointers if there is no clear parent to assign ownership to).
Furthermore, SGaist's point about passing a pointer to a function whose signature expects a const reference cannot be understated. If the function expects a pointer, give it a pointer. If it expects a const reference, give it an object created on the stack! https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qsqlquerymodel.html#details
The documentation is good; use it! It is unclear to me why you are using functions such as "clear" for the model. The setQuery() function already clears the model. Why mess around with new and delete several times when you can just pass in a new query to modify the existing model? Futhermore, why bother clear()-ing the model immediately before you delete it? The destructor is called during the delete, which itself frees up any resources, per the documentation.
There are deeper problems of comprehension going on here!
