  • The CM ensured in his message that swift action will be taken to arrest the culprits

This is the twelfth case of rape, abduction and murder reported in the district since the past one year, the police have said.

The minor had been staying with her aunt as her parents travelled to Saudi Arabia.

An autopsy has confirmed that Zainab was strangled and sodomized and suggests she was raped, the medical officer who carried out the examination, Dr Quratulain Atique, told CNN.

Her body was found days later in a rubbish dump, 2km from her home.

The enraged locals took to the streets against the brutal murder of Zainab after rape and demanded to hang the culprit in public.

The grieving father said that police did not shoulder their responsibilities.

Ameen Ansari, who was away on a pilgrimage in Mecca at the time of his daughter's murder, has accused the police in Kasur of negligence and said that an immediate response when the alarm was raised could have saved Zainab's life.

At least two people died Wednesday as protesters clashed with police.

The injured have been shifted to the hospital for medical assistance whereas the security personnel are busy in dispersing the locals. The murderer and rapist of Kasur case has been arrested by the (Military Intelligence) and shifted to Lahore for further investigation.


A first information report was registered on January 5, a day after the girl went missing.

Many politicians, activists condemned the death of the young girl and urged to bring the culprits to justice in tweets that flooded Twitter.

PTI chief Imran Khan posted: "The condemnable & horrific rape & murder of little Zainab exposes once again how vulnerable our children are in our society".

The brutal murder of the girl, the 12th such case to occur within a two-kilometre radius of the city over the a year ago, ignited a wellspring of anger among the city's residents. We have to act swiftly to punish the guilty & ensure that our children are better protected'.

Punjab's Chief Minister Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif ordered police to arrest the girl's killers in the next 24 hours and offered a 10 million Pakistani rupee bounty (over $90,000) for anyone who helps identify those responsible.

The efforts were prompted in July 2017 by surfacing of another case of a child's murder after sexual abuse.

Pakistan Peoples Party chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari criticised the provincial government.

Ruling Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) member Hina Butt has submitted a privilege motion in the Punjab Assembly, seeking justice for 11 other minor girls who were killed after rape in Kasur and adjoining areas during the past year.
