Pakistan releases new video of "person of interest" in Zainab rape, murder

No major breakthrough in Zainab murder case in Pakistan

Protests erupt over rape, murder of 7-year-old girl in Pakistan

The protesters pelted stones at the police station, offices of district police officer and district coordination officer in Kasur as the city observed a complete shut down.

Pakistani residents carry the body of a girl during her funeral in Kasur in Punjab Province on January 10, 2018, following her rape and murder.

The inspector general of Punjab police had earlier told reporters that the JIT constituted to probe the case had received the DNA test results and investigations were underway. He also condemned the killing of two protesters due to police firing on the protesters Wednesday. Police have detained eight suspects, including two relatives of the girl.

On January 4, Zainab had left her house to go to her maternal aunt's nearby and is believed to have been abducted en route.

"It appears as if the kidnapper is a local who developed familiarity with Zainab to take her along, probably telling her that he would take her to her parents", he said.

Steelers seek revenge on Sunday
I've carved out my own little niche when it comes to covering sports, especially the National Football League in general. Leonard Fournette had his breakout game against the Steelers , with 181 yards and two touchdowns on 28 carries.

Preliminary examination of the minor's body - that was recovered from a garbage dump on Tuesday - had revealed that she'd been raped before she was killed.

"It is tragic that we have to pick the dead bodies of our children again and again", she said. "I'm a mother and that is why I'm sitting here with my daughter", Naz was quoted as saying by The Times of India report.

She urged Punjab chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif to show the same speed in Zainab's murder case that he maintained while constructing Orange Train. He added that police are waiting for forensic evidence to be collected and analyzed.

It is to be mentioned here that as many as 12 children have been killed after rape in Kasur in one year whereas police officers have killed three people involved in such criminal activities.

Rabbani said that when the Kasur child abuse scandal surfaced in 2015, he had raised concerns that the outrage would die down within a few days, which is why it is necessary that the government take long-term measures to ensure the safety of children.
