Riots in Pakistan over rape and murder of seven-year-old girl

Riots in Pakistan over rape and murder of seven-year-old girl

The two protesters were killed after police shot at an angry crowd attempting to storm a police headquarters in Kasur, about 20km (12 miles) south of Lahore.

Police said the minor, a resident of Rod Kot area of Kasur, was kidnapped on her way to a tuition centre on January 5.

The brutal murder of Zainab has incited anger among residents as it is the 12th such case to occur within a two kilometre radius in the city in the a year ago. Local media organisations quote police chief Zulfiqar Hameed as saying that an autopsy suggested that the girl was raped before being strangled to death at least five days ago.

The girl, Zainab Ansari, disappeared last week while going to a nearby home for Quranic studies and her body was found in a Kasur waste-yard on Tuesday.

Much of the anger was directed Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif and Punjab Inspector General of Police who they claimed had failed to act on dozens of cases of children being raped and murdered in the Kasur district of the province.

Her family received footage showing her with a stranger near Peerowala Road, a video which has since gone viral on social media.

Pakistan's Malala Yousafzai, the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize laureate and champion for female education, tweeted Wednesday she was "heartbroken" about Zainab's tragic fate and demanded action against the killer. This has to stop.

Cricketers grieved the brutal rape and murder.

"I am heart broken, gutted and disgusted what sort of society we r living in. heart goes out to the parents". An example which scares anyone to even think about doing something like this again."Actress Mawra Hocane said, "Ya Allah is qadar Zulm or Jahalat! @pid_gov @GovtOfPunjab #JusticeForZainab", she said on microblogging site". "Those societies that can not protect its children are eternally condemned.Just presided over a meeting of police and administration officials".

Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif said he will not rest until the culprits are brought to justice. Made it absolutely clear to them that lip service would not work. PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari too was critical of the provincial government, demanding immediate action against the culprits and said Pakistan needed to re-evaluate how to deal with such crimes. Those failing in their duties will be proceeded against.

Kasur had earlier hit the headlines in 2015 when a gang of paedophiles running a child sex ring was busted in the town.
