Riots spark after eight-year-old raped and murdered in Kasur, Pakistan

Minor girl brutally raped, killed and dumped in trash in Kasur

Zainab, 7, went missing while going to her tuition center on January 5.

According to local media, Zainab's parents were in Mecca for a religious pilgrimage when she was allegedly abducted and then killed.

Opposition Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto termed the brutal rape and murder of the girl as "shocking and a slap on the face of Sharifdom (Sharif brothers)". They chanted anti-police slogans, pelted stones and broke glasses of police mobiles.

It is the 12th such incident of the same nature in Kasur, in which minor girls were molested and murdered after abduction.

Zainab Ansari's body was found in a rubbish dump on Tuesday, several days after she went missing. The girl managed to escape her abductor and return home. Zainab's initial postmortem report stated that she was strangled to death after being raped multiple times, but further forensic examination would be required.

The Punjab provincial government took notice of the incident and ordered the arrest of the perpetrators.

Two people died in clashes with security forces, the TOI reported. Pakistan Awami Tehreek Chief Tahirul Qadri led the people to offer funeral prayer of Zainab.

District Kasur has a history of offenses against minor children. Reportedly, two people lost their lives and three others sustained fatal injuries by gunshot wounds in police retaliation.

Medico Legal Officer Quratulain Attique at the District Headquarters Hospital, where the autopsy was performed, said that this was the fourth such incidence they have witnessed in the last seven months.

A number of police officials have been transferred out of the region for failing to investigate complaints of missing children since 2015, when authorities uncovered what they said was a paedophile ring linked to a prominent local family.

In his interview with Dawn, Rana Sanaullah, law minister of Punjab, said, "A child's safety is its parents' responsibility".

Eleven cases of child sexual abuse are reported every day in Pakistan, according to data from Sahil, a non-government organization that works for child protection.

We demand immediate action against culprits and Pakistan needs to re-evaluate how to deal with such crimes.

Chief Minister Punjab Shehbaz Sharif said that he will supervise the Zainab case himself till the case is not resolved and won't let the rapist escape.

The murder and rape of an eight-year-old girl has sparked a national outcry in Pakistan after a picture of her lifeless body lying in a heap of garbage was shared on social media platforms on Wednesday.
